We'll have fun, fun, fun?

It's August IWSG Day!

I have to hurry up and enjoy my last couple weeks of freedom! Since my summer vacay is winding down, I'm getting the most out of it by meeting friends for lunch, shopping, and writing/editing my boo-tay off! -- all the things I never have time for during the school year. And with the aspirations I'm hoping to undertake, I may not get a summer off again... I'll elucidate more if it comes to fruition. (Don't you just love big words?? 😆)

A big THANK YOU to my reading volunteers. I just sent off CONDUCTION to them and can't wait to gobble up their feedback. I also have two events coming up that I'm super excited to do. It's about darn time!

Not much more to add, just plugging away to get ready for what's ahead and hope I'm prepared for any sudden surprises. But I do have one last special announcement...


The Writers Chat is up and running! After getting some feedback, we are chatting again. We need connections and a safe place to share ideas, speak our minds, and get encouragement. Here are the deets:

TUESDAYS, 7:30 pm (EST)
on a private Discord Channel (very easy to join and use w/o worries)

Next Tues (8/10) our topic is: Planning - Plotting vs Pantsing
but we usually get side-tracked, so anything is on the table...

We'd love for you to join us. Let me know if you want to be on my reminder list or if you have any questions about it.


I hope your August is fruitful and things aren't too crazy in your part of the world.
Don't let it get you down -- Write it out!

I miss my summer vacations, but not the stress of the school year! I'm on the flip side now. I run summer programs and then happily drive the day care van each day to deliver those chattering children to their school! I'm looking forward to my quieter days as I hand them back over to teachers! The chat group sounds awesome!

Three months of fun - I remember that.

Hopefully I can join for the chat since I never remember the WedWrant.

I'd love to join the chat, so long as my schedule is clear at that time! It's been so long since I've been able to have any kind of writing accountability or networking group.

I've really enjoyed the chat the last couple of weeks. It's been a lot of fun...even if we get sidetracked. Maybe especially because we get sidetracked. :)

I'd love to jump in and hear the chat. I've marked it on my calendar and fingers crossed I don't have a conflict. This has been one fast-paced summer.
