Hello again y'all,
February is going to be a fun month. Our meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 7th, is a regular meeting and I'm looking forward to hearing some great stories. We will be doing the Second Stage of the Creative Writing Exercise. Be prepared.
At our second meeting of the month, Feb. 21st, we are honored to have as a guest speaker, internationally recognized author, Elizabeth Sims, Barring any unforeseen complications, like the flu or virus sweeping the nation.
Elizabeth is the author of the Rita Farmer Mysteries and the winner of the 2003 Lambda and Golden Crown Literary Society (GCLS) Goldie Award for Lillian Byrd Crime Series books. She is also a contributing editor for Writer's Digest magazine.
She is represented by the Donald Maass agency, belongs to several literary societies, and is a member of American Mensa.
I understand she will be speaking on her book, You've Got a Book in You and passing along tips and tricks for getting the best out yourself where it comes to writing.
I hope you will join us at our regular meeting time, 6:30 PM and bring notepad.
