Thanks for letting me crash your writing group even though I’m not quite a Quincy gal.

I’m taking Ariel Gore’s Writing Workshop this summer and loving it. It’s online.

Great writing assignments (that I am going to steal) and great fun. She’s got me writing about evil step dad’s AND Elvis in the same week! How about that?

I spoke with FRC (email back and forth really) and they are super psyched for us to have a ‘club’ on campus and will give us meeting space.

I thought perhaps for Fall we might try and have a couple of Saturday writing workshops. They were amiable to that idea. I was going to go with M-L’s suggestion to do one solely on dialogue. Let me know what you think.

My laptop is currently in a coma somewhere in the midwest so most of my writing has come to a stand still or rather my editing has (including the class anthology). Hopefully the laptop will be back and breathing by the end of the week. I’ve just been doing Ariel Gore’s writing assignments and trying to write about the trip. (Graceland is the first entry about the trip).

my bag

Despite my best intentions I screwed up and missed today's writing group. My only excuse, I was grading last minute papers to enter some last minute grades and had to finish before 5 pm. I did show up a little after 5 and apologized to Lance and Hannah in person, so now I'm apologizing to the rest of you via our blog.

I'm leaving town 7/9/09 until mid-August so I'll miss all the rest of our summer writing groups. In the Fall, I really do hope to settle down and start writing more consistently and look forward to working with all of you again.
