As many employers, including our restaurant, are giving people the day off to work on their writing, we will not meet on Nov 26.  The next submissions will be due on November 30th for the December 3rd meeting.


Cassie’s book is in proof print.

Benjamin completed two freelance projects that led to more jobs.

Dylan got a story commission.

Erin’s blog is on line, with a revision of her recent submission to the group.


Homophones that are heterographs are a recurring problem for many writers.  That’s what we get for using a language that has borrowed from many others and adapts readily to new usages. This article explains the difference between homophones, homonyms, and homographs.

You have to learn each and every set of homophones, as theiyr’re is no general rule to help.  Here’s  a guide to some common ones.
