Members are fighting for space on the Bragging Stool this week. The hot seat – excuse the pun – belongs to Nicola who’s rapidly filling up our library shelves. Her Brazen book ‘Losing Control’ has been accepted for publication after she’s ‘hotted’ it up a bit more!
Paola’s recycled Jamdani Saris story is now published on the Travel Thru History website with lots of fabulous photos.
Angela’s beautifully-illustrated flash fiction story ‘Alchemy’ is now up on the Story Shack website.
And Doreen awaits the reward for her Letter of the month published in Living France magazine – a Provençal gift hamper. Lucky her.
Congratulations to everyone!
Jo has posted this week’s Monday Muse with a choice of using the theme of a kiss, an intriguing opening line, or (a chance for poets here) writing an ode. If all that fails, there’s a great picture to inspire us.
Laura has written a Blog we can all relate to about how we read and write in the modern electronic age. Whether we go for e-readers and write straight onto the screen, or whether we still like to turn a real page of a book or write long-hand is a choice we all have to make.
During yesterday’s Formal Chat – sorry I missed it – talk was about WA’s 2013 Anthology. It is going to be interesting to see what theme is chosen once we cast our votes. You’ll find more details from Jo’s Notes on the formal chat, in the Meeting Room forum.
Don’t forget to take a look at the Chapter Group where Vanessa has started posting chapters of her historical novel set in Corsica, The House at Zaronza. A great start which has already got me hooked. Pop over and make a comment if you’ve time. It’s next on my list, Vanessa! And Paola has posted another February Challenge and is looking for critiques. I’m onto that too!
Last but definitely not least, we have a very enthusiastic-sounding Jayme from Costa Rica joining us on a month’s trial for Membership. A big welcome and I hope you’ll love it enough with us to stay. It would be great to have a member from yet another continent to add to our diversity.
Anything I’ve forgotten I’m sure you’ll let me know.
