What are your plans for the weekend?


I'm looking forward to tomorrow evening, when I'll be giving my presentation, 'Have Blog, Want Readers?' for the South Jersey Writers' Group at the Treehouse Coffee Shop in Audobon, NJ 08106.

Kick-off's at 7:30pm. If you'd like to come along, I'd love to see you there.

On Saturday, I'm off to the regular GLVWG (Greater Lehigh Valley Writing Group) meeting, to hear my friend, Kathryn Craft, give a presentation on final edits, followed by a workshop on pitching to agents.

How about you?

What are your plans for the weekend?

I doubt that. Isn't this weekend the next round of your family's annual yodelling championships? :P

I'm going to be enjoying my Christmas present. My dad got tickets for me and some family members to see The Lion King at Proctor's in Schenectady. I've wanted to see that for years.

Have fun. I saw that in England. Very good, though I enjoyed Beauty and the Beast even more :)

i really, really, really gotta finish this textbook chapter on psychoactive substances, including editing it down to a couple thousand words less than it is.

Weekends are family time. I try not to write on Saturday or Sunday, but sometimes it's hard, especially when I'm here by myself. We watch a movie Saturday night (PPV), have chips and popcorn. It's really the only time when the three of us sit down and spend time together.

Movie nights with the family are fun - once you finally agree on what to watch :)

More water system repairs, supplies run, feeding teh Ranch Critters. Exciting, eh?

If I'm luck, I'll get some time in working on some photographs.

Torn World Muse Fusion
I'll be having fun writing, or perhaps some writing and some drawing, as part of the Muse Fusion at torn_world, which will be starting in about 24 hours.

Everyone is welcome to stop by and leave prompts or just check out the creative jam. In honor of our upcoming print anthology, the theme is Family, by Blood and by Choice.

Writers and artists new to Torn World are also welcome--you can check out contributors' guidelines over at www.tornworld.net.

New Jersey's way too far for me to travel right now (my budget restricts me to much shorter trips), but I hope you have a blast!

Weekend Plans
Might go and listen to a bloke from England rabbit on about blogs as I live in that neck of the woods.

1. Panic over next week's release of Demonised.
2. Smother panic with chocolate and board games.

Best of luck with both - especially the chocolate one :)

And you are going to post your notes -- at the very least -- of that presentation for us newbies. Right?

Most of it's from posts I made here, under the 'Fine Art of Self-Promotion' tag :)

Weekend
Jon,
Thanks for bringing cookies for the meeting. I was required to attend a church meeting on Sat. Bart met me for lunch, and met a close friend of mine that he only spoke to on the phone. The day was redeemed!

See you at the conference.

Shalom,
Phyllis
