This week, aside from working on Waking up Jack Thunder, I have five writerly-type things I’m excited about.
#5 Voting to select the short list for the Meager Puddle of Limelight Award: Best Novella or Short Story Title ends at midnight tonight (US/Eastern), which means I can announce the short list for all three Best Title categories tomorrow.
#4 On Tuesday morning, I have my weekly writing group session at a nearby assisted living center. Sure, over the last few meetings it’s pretty much dissolved into an hour-long session of hangman, with me as the ‘quizmaster’, but that’s only because we now have over twenty members. In any case, we have a good laugh.
#3 I’ve often wondered what it’s like to be a guest blogger. On Thursday I get to find out, when I’ll be over at my GSHW and New Jersey Authors’ Network friend, damcphail’s place, to talk about why we’re so mean to our main characters.
#2 Speaking of The New Jersey Authors' Network, I’ve organized a six-author panel/Q&A at Monmouth County Library (HQ), Manalapan for this coming Saturday afternoon (2:00pm start).
Although I arranged the event, and I’ll be there to
heckle provide moral support, I’m not hosting this one. That job’s in the capable hands of my friend and fellow Monmouth Writer, Jim (J.J.) Lair aka searching39.
If you’re in the area, and decide to stop by, the theme is:
The Suspense is Killing Me!
(How Authors Keep You Turning Those Pages)
A six-author panel/Q&A at Monmouth County Library(HQ)
Saturday September 26th 2009 at 2:00pm
Featuring: J.J.Lair (moderator);
Richard Brawer; Marlene Satter; Peggy Ehrhart; Chris Redding and Jeff Markowitz
#1 As much as I'm looking forward to the above, I'm way more excited about Friday's event After almost three weeks in England, Senior Management comes home!
Now, you might wonder what’s this last one got to do with writing. The answer is “Everything, silly. She’s my muse, and I’ve missed her.”
How about you?
What writerly-type goings on have you got planned for this week?
