There are several open review slots in the coming weeks.   Polish up some of your work and grab the opportunities.

Tyree will miss some meetings but promises to deliver critiques when he returns, so keep copying him on your submissions.


Dylan finished two more paid commission stories of significant length.

Ciuin did a major  rewrite of an existing history of Ushers Ferry.  She also learned that a document she wrote a while back for World Artists Initiative is now in ten languages and will be published in major newspapers in Europe.   Now she needs to get fluent in ten languages so she can read the articles.

Tony is making excellent progress on Tunnels of St. Lucy despite a very hectic schedule.  He hopes to make enough money from the story to buy a taxi company that will transport all his family members to their appointments and activities.


“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London
