Brr! I don’t want to turn on the fireplace yet; but, it’s cold today. But at least its going to be dry for a few more days. Then the rains move in.
Speaking of rains, when the weather turns this way, it’s so much easier to get into the swing of the writing thing. It’s going to rain, you may as well write. And November is the perfect month for it, because it’s National Novel Writing Month! Once again, SnoValley Writes! will be leading the charge and getting everyone excited and involved and making the month not only productive, but fun!
Kick Off: Will be on the evening of November 1. It will inspire those that feel stuck and allow those who have already charged ahead to come out. There will be prizes, giveaways, No Plot, No Problem discussion, and connecting with your other WriMos. I will have details hopefully after today. But it will be the evening of Nov. 1 — so be sure to stay tuned.
To also put on your NaNoWriMo calendar is the evening of Nov. 17th — our regions Night of Writing Dangerously. This event will also provide a mini writing retreat. So stay tuned for details for that as well. I’ll be posting this information via the NaNoWriMo.org
site, so be sure you get signed up and registered and home yourself with the Snoqualmie Valley region. I’ll be at the Black Dog on Friday for those who need help with the technical aspects of signing up. Or at our Workshop Session on Sunday.
This Sunday is our regular Workshop Session. Please RSVP if you plan on attending. We will start the session with exchanging some work for feedback. Bring a short story, one chapter of a novel, up to five pages of poems, or up to 10 pages of a screenplay for review by other members. Then we’ll dive into our exercises and other creative pursuits. Bring pen/notebook or your lappie. We’ll be working. That’s why it’s called a Workshop. 😀
There is a board meeting for SnoValley Writes! tonight at the Sawdust Cafe at 5:30 p.m. for anyone who is wanting to be involved further in the group.
Okay, enough with the housekeeping and announcements. Here’s your prompt….which you may proceed to if you’ve done your morning pages and had your artist’s date in the last week. Oh, you haven’t? Nor have you done any inspirational reading? tsk-tsk. Go do those. When you’ve finished those, you may proceed to the other tasks.
Which I’ll give the group on Sunday. North Bend Library. 3 p.m. Be there.
And now your moment of Writing Zen:
“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.” ~Anne Lamont

Falling, like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron
