March 3 Debrief

We had a good meeting on Saturday.  Louis introduced us to the beginning of his next story involving a gifted student.  Gary brough in a one act play with two evolving characters.

I will be at the Blasco library this Thursday March 8 from 4:30-6PM in room 102 (downstairs). Bring some writing to share, or we can discuss setting up and using a blog.  Write a little every day!  See you soon.  ~Tom~


February 17 Debrief

Wonderful meeting this past Saturday.  Thanks to Pat, Heather and Dinty for sharing their recent work.  We heard about murderous vampires (are there any other kind?), inspired woodworkers, and family members that carried a bit of larceny with them.  What will you write about this week?  Share it with us!

Next meeting is this Thursday, February 22 at 4:30PM.  Room 102, Blasco library.


Celebrate The Warm-up With Writing

Greetings gutsy word scribes!  We should be melting this weekend, let’s celebrate!  Our next writer meeting will be this Saturday, January 20 at 2:30PM.  Plan to bring 5+ copies of any writing you would like reviewed by the other writers.  Don’t have anything?  Sit down before Saturday and scribble out some words.  I myself am a procrastinator, but I can always bring in something – you can too!

See you at the Blasco library this Saturday!  ~Tom~

P.S. Don’t forget to avail yourself of the online resources and  library books for guidance.    Have fun, and get it done.
