Pot Luck Christmas

Betty Kasperski will facilitate our December meeting

POT LUCK WRITING: This is a Pot Luck meeting with a Christmas theme. Please four pages of something you have written to read aloud, preferably something holiday-related. If we have time for more, those who have a long-term project you would like to revive may bring four additional pages. We won't be critiquing this time, just enjoying your creativity and discussing what is read.

 

Also at this meeting, we'll discuss topics you'd be interested in learning about in 2022 and ask for volunteers to lead our meetings. We already have some commitments: January 15 (Gayle Marie, "Developing Your Characters/Targeting Your Audience), February 19 (Elizabeth Boerner, "Critiques, Critiques, Critiques"), March 19 (Linda Hostelley), April 16 (Gayle Marie, "Naysayers and Other Nuisances"), and June 18 (Michele Chynoweth, "Book Marketing 101"). We need teachings and facilitators for the following third Saturdays: May 21, July 16, August 20 (or should we take this month off?), Sept. 17 (Collins Pond?), October 15, November 19, and December 17. 

 
POT LUCK FOOD: Please bring Christmas snacks and hearty refreshments as we'll be having lunch together during our meeting.

AUGUST

No meeting. AUGUST is a time to WRITE, not to meet and talk about writing. 

 
Isaiah 30:8 (TPT) - God told me to write down in a book words meant for the coming generation as an eternal witness. Meditate on this Scripture and let it quicken your spirit and motivate you.
 
The challenge this month is to put your pen or your keyboard to good use so you'll have something to share at our regular meeting in October. We're not asking much: just one to four double-spaced pages. If you haven't written in a while (or ever), consider August your jump-start month. Record the words the Lord is entrusting to you, words only you can write that will inspire, uplift, clarify, entertain, inform, or help readers now and in the years to come.
