This months newsletter, written by Patti Nicholson:

How quickly time passes!  It seems the older I get, the faster it goes.  My perception of time varies based on where I am, with whom, and what I am doing.  For example, if I am babysitting my newest grandchild, time goes by much too quickly.  However, if I am waiting in line somewhere (anywhere), time crawls by so slowly.

Writing Prompt: What causes time to pass quickly or slowly for you?  Write about it.

COMING UP: February 11, 2014 "Online Resources" presented by guest speaker, Stephanie Vobornik.  She will be speaking about online research and how to know the source of your resource.  See the schedule page for more details.

FEEDBACK (CRITIQUE) OPPORTUNITY: If you want to receive feedback on your work, come early (5:30 p.m.) to meet with others. Bring 6-8 copies of your short piece (300 words or so) for the group to read along as you share. You could bring what you’ve written in response to the prompt above, or something else you’re working on. It can be a portion of a book chapter, or a short article too.

FUN STUFF: Did you find the error in this month's newsletter? If so, click on the 'Contact Us' link and send us an email. One name will be drawn from all correct responses, and he/she will receive a prize.

See you at the February meeting!
