The Third Wednesday General Meeting is next Wednesday the 19th. For those who have a published work in print, remember to bring a 'browsing' copy for a book table. Any artists out there who would volunteer to make a sign?? I assure you, drawing is not my forte! Others may be interested in supporting your work! Throw a few extra copies in your car and any transactions can take place before or after the meeting or on break. No hawking books on the clock! That's not fair to those who don't yet have one. And, please, whoever was kind enough to supply the bell, (I can't seem to find the owner)please bring it again. I can't wait to ring the thing! :)) Time limits will be enforced. Y'all are gonna have to learn the meaning of the word 'excerpt! Three page limit with a short verbal intro of the scene. Leave 'em wanting more! That way, everyone gets a turn to speak or read. I DO include my own jabbering self in this rule. I don't want that bell ringin' at me again! :)
I'm not getting requests to be a star reader! Perhaps, I'll assign a couple! Someone who hasn't read to the group yet? I have had a few requests for Bart and Joanne to repeat their team work for those who missed it. How 'bout it, you two?
