Last February Meeting

Two of us have been editing and brought nothing to read–naughty Monica and Me. But we've committed to three pages of new material a week, even during the editing of our manuscripts. Monica shared the story of her new novel, which sounds like literary fantasy (I think A Garden of Dreams would be a cool title). I'm going to bring in the opening of Road Trip of the Living Dead. Megan is plugging away at Chameleon Red (Yep, she settled on the title), and brought a sexy little piece from the middle of the book. Sherylle is untitled at the moment and focused on the Ann Rule thingy. Both Megan and Sherylle are committed to completion of their novels, prior to starting on other work.


February 12th Meeting

This week we welcomed Tom Wright to the group, he's written a scifi/spiritual Crichtonesque manuscript, called In The Wild. The group discussed fine tuning a manuscript and a number of ideas for making the work "sing". We reviewed PNWA literary contest submission materials and traded our work for editing. Monica moved to meet on Saturday morning to review the edits and to allow time to finish the pieces prior to mailing on Tuesday the 20th (deadline). Megan agreed to email the first 25 pages of her ms, for editing. Reminder to all check out Tom's first chapter at http://www.inthwild.us/

Next meeting: Saturday 17 @ 9:00 am.
Next real meeting: Monday 26 @ 6:30 pm.

February 5th Meeting

Sherylle presented a great story for submission to the PNWA literary contest, her goal is to rework it by the deadline. Monica has completed her synopsis and moved for trading our work at the February 12th meeting for deeper editing. Mark reported his great news that he'd just signed with an editor. So here's the plan: next meeting's focus will be on the final submission edit.

See you there.
