Hope you’re well into enjoying summertime. I am suffering from post-son’s-wedding brain (someone got married on a Tuesday? Sure, why not? Heck, I got married on a Thursday…), so forgive the numbered style of this communique.
1. Wine and Words tomorrow night at 6 p.m. at The Black Dog Arts Cafe in Snoqualmie. Spoken word, novel excerpts, poetry, it’ll all be on stage featuring our own member, Rachel Barnard, and other SnoValley Writes! authors. Sponsored by Free Valley Publishing. Please be there and support your fellow writers. There’s no cover and there’s wine specials! Good home-crafted food, too! Come on down!
2. Next workshop is July 15. Please take some time to go to our website and make sure you’re all caught up on assignments. If you have specific questions, please email me and I’m happy to answer them for you. I will review all the assignments in a separate message next week. What I can tell you is that those who are doing the assignments are finding it very helpful and is improving their writing. What I can also tell you is that Level Up Your Writing will be the last workshops en gratis pro bono, as they say, that I’ll be doing. So take advantage now. I’ll be moving to teaching online and in one-off lectures after this Level Up Your Writing learning track is finished.
3. Enjoy summer. Write. Observe. Write some more. Revise. Live. Write. Rinse. Repeat.
4. Now your moment of Writing Zen: “The masses do not see the Sirens. They do not hear songs in the air. Blind, deaf, stooping, they pull at their oars in the hold of the earth. But the more select, the captains, harken to a Siren within them… and royally squander their lives with her.” ~ Nikos Kazantzakis

“But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron
