We will be discussing Art’s writing piece and sharing our homework. The homework is to write the best sentence you can to start a novel. It can be of any genre and any length.

Tomorrow night (November 3rd) is the second meeting of the self-publishing branch of the East Hants Writers. We will meet at the Elmsdale Public Library, Elmsdale, East Hants, NS, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

I’ll share my thoughts on HalCon, a fantasy/science fiction event that took place in Halifax over the weekend, and I’ll start a discussion on the different types of publishers out there today.

October Meeting Reminder

This is a reminder that the next meeting takes place tomorrow night, Tuesday October 20th at 6:00 pm, at the Elmsdale Library. The counter to the left of this post counts down the days to the next meeting.

Reminder: We will be doing a reading exercise. So don’t forget your 500-word (or so) short story. Print one copy in an easy to read font and place it on the counter, face down, when you walk into the meeting room. Please, do NOT put your name on the story. Stories are to be read anonymously.

We’ll also have a mini workshop.

And…lastly…think of one writing goal you’d like to accomplish between now and the October meeting. This time, I won’t forget the envelopes.
