We were supposed to get together on the 14th, next weekend. Because of the site downtime and the fact that the new site isn't finished and not everyone's on it yet, I'm actually thinking we might want to push this back until January. Thoughts?
I wouldn't mind a postponement. At first I thought going all the way out to January was a bit much, but then again...people tend to get stressed out during the holiday season, trying to get everything sorted.
Does anyone have anything to say about the stories we passed around to each other last month, anyway? I've sadly been negligent in reviewing them...I was gonna take them with me during finals, and read them there. :>
I could pull things off on the 14th, but then again, I have the shortest list of things to critique. More important then time to correct might be time to write for everyone. I have a strong backlog because I'm hitting another writer's critique group once a month, but we all should have the chance to benefit from critiques.
Also, the front button (read more) just crashed Firefox Linx XD. I'm sure it's nothing though.
I wish I could say I had worked on more to share, too. But I'll I've knocked out is something kinda dumb about paper clips and staples. :> I'll have to pass it around if I get it ironed out...
Did you know there's a writer's club on FurryMUCK? If I remember right they meet every Tuesday in the afternoon and recite things they've written (cut and paste into the MUCK room). We could do something like that if we ever get more members from far-flung spots in the state (or even just the Phoenix metro area).
It's a great video to watch because he describes the various ways in which we use language, why we use it as we do and even how game theory plays into our words. I have the feeling that it could be a great resource for writing dialogue. Any thoughts on this?
Sorry about lack of communication. I think the holidays and everything are just going to be too much. Let's aim for January so there's hopefully a bit of time for everyone to breathe. Maybe the second or third weekend?
And are we thinking the Bungalow in Mesa, the Xtreme Bean in Tempe again, or somewhere else? If we're doing the Bungalow, we have to make it a morning meet because their Saturday hours are 8am to noon.
