I'll be speaking regularly at my solipsism support group.

A writerly friend from the past and I are working out schedules to play with words together. First get-together will be Tuesday. And I'm starting up attending a writing exercise group a week from today. Beyond that, I'm currently looking for an established writing/critique group with whom I'll be a good fit.

BTW, I hope you don't mind my mentioning this (because I really can't help myself), but you're quite the moderate kind of guy, aren't you?
