In 500 words or less, write a suspense story that will take your readers to places they’ve never been, see things they’ve never seen, and keep them on the edge of their seats – because with only 500 words, they won’t have any pages to keep turning!

Upcoming Changes

3 Comments

As we approach our six month anniversary, it is time to look forward to 2012.  Next year, we are planning to move from our once per month schedule on the third Thursday of each month to first and third Thursdays.  This will offer opportunities to critique more work from our authors, and to explore more discussion topics.

We will continue the once a month schedule through December (12/15/2011), and begin the new schedule on January 5, 2012 with a submission deadline of 12/30.

This change of schedule gives us an opportuinty to also discuss other aspects of our group.

  • Should we change our venue?
    • Alternating locations, e.g. North Dearborn and Lawrenceburg,  North Dearborn and Hidden Valley, etc?
    • Something totally different, e.g. a restaurant ?
  • Should we change the meeting times?
  • Suggest special discussion or presentation topics, e.g. dialog tags.
  • Suggest guest speakers.

Please offer your suggestions as a comment to this post.  We can continue the discussion at our December 15 meeting.  But we need to finalize any venue changes at that meeting so we can distribute new posters during the last half of the month.

Maybe someone should write that down...
