Our next meeting will be on November 14th and will be held at the Palmer Library, 1 Weller Place, Easton PA
Meetings begin at 10AM. Bring a notebook, laptop, whatever you wish along with your ideas.
Our July meeting was about brainstorming and critiquing and members spent the day doing a lot of both. When you’re stuck on your project, it often helps to speak about it, let others in and allow them to spark some new ideas or help you through a difficult plot point.
Many members stayed well after the meeting was over to continue working on their WIPs, which was encouraging to everyone.
This will be our last meeting as we hit our summer holidays. We will meet again in the fall.
Happy writing to all!
As vacations for our members start creeping up, attendance slims during these months. We were unable to hold the Scrivener presentation and so it will be postponed until a later date. With the handful of members that were in attendance, we discussed publishing news, some members had attended the book show at the Javitz.
We also went around the room and discussed goals and afterwards, many stayed behind to brainstorm and plot current WIPs. It was good to get back to basics again and many were able to get back on track with the help of their writing sisters.
July there will be no meeting, as it is our regularly scheduled hiatus month. August may be another brainstorming session depending on attendance, we’ll play it by ear.
Until then, keep your butts in the chair and keep on writing!
In May, we were graced with the presence of the ever lovely Judi Fennell. Her insight into self-publishing was both intriguing and inspirational and members were able to ask many questions that weighed on their minds about this topic.
Delving into the obstacles and issues writers will face in this growing form of publication, she was able to clarify the process and make it seem so easy.
She also shared stories of her books, how they were created and how she decided to self-publish.
This month we had a lovely time exploring world-building with Stephanie Julian. Whether building a fantasy world in some far off, mystical land or writing a sci fi thriller in a well known city, she helped us to clarify how to go about the process.
There was more to it than many of us had realized and her guidance was both helpful and interesting. Of course, we digressed into many fun and thrilling topics and we all had questions to keep the chatter going.
So a huge thank you to Stephanie for joining us and giving light to our new worlds!
In March we had a fabulous meeting at member Kathy Kulig’s beautiful Victorian home. Several members attended and we spent many hours doing a brainstorming round robin over wine and laughter.
It was a wonderful day filled with great ideas and intriguing plot twists.
We want to thank Kathy for opening her home to us. We all had a marvelous time.
