A Moment Away

My son is coming up today to see us and we're going to hit the Ren Fair. Tomorrow I've got to get a test graded that I gave yesterday, and Monday starts final exams. Lots more grading.

In addition, on Wednesday I'm giving a presentation on "The Care and Feeding of Writing Groups" at the local library. I'll be doing two presentations. I've copied the announcement below, though I know pretty much none of you are in this area.

For these reasons, I'm taking a few days off blogging and probably won't be back until Friday of this coming week. Hang tough!

ST. TAMMANY PARISH –Have you dreamed of belonging to a creative writer’s group? You can receive advice from experienced writers during two programs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 10 at the Causeway Branch library, 3457 Hwy. 190 and from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 16 at the Slidell Branch, 555 Robert Blvd.

Charles Gramlich and other members of the Northshore Inklings Writing Group will speak about the types of writing groups, how to form one, and how to maintain it. They will also discuss their experiences self-publishing an anthology of member’s works called “Louisiana Inklings: A Literary Sampler.”
Audience members can purchase“Louisiana Inklings”as well as Charles Gramlich’s book “Write With Fire.”The authors will be available to autograph the books.


The event is free and open to the public, and registration is recommended. Light refreshments will be available. Seating space is limited to adults. Please register online at http://register.stpl.us/evanced/lib/eventcalendar.asp or call the library at(985) . Registration opens two weeks before the date of the event.

It's always good to see family. The meeting sounds interesting and helpful, if I could only attend.

That is very cool. I hope the presentation goes well for you, my friend.

That sounds really interesting! So many of them can be nitpicky, etc. ...

Awesome! I'd love to listen to the presentations! One day you might have to film them and put them on the net for your friends who are many states away. ;)

Hm.
Creative writing.Good.

Used to be my thing.

Gave it up for a while, and became a lounge singer.

What the hell, other scribblers have misemployed themselves to take up stand-up comedy!

Over here redneck says, "You sing like a bird...Now I'm gonna punch you out."

Life gets tedjus. lol.

In case things get really busy, I want to be sure to wish you a very happy Christmas, Charles. I'm not sure I'll get cards out this year, so this will have to do. I love reading your blog and thank you for stopping by mine so frequently. Gud Juel.

Thanks, everyone. I'm going to try and get back slowly into blogging today.
