    Still trying to find a chance to get some of my work to a scanner; the old websites where my fiction was hosted are long gone. However, I do have a number of paper copies. I'll just bring those for some other Saturday down the line if that will be the same.

      HI Tom, somebody may have suggested this to you already, but have you tried the wayback machine? It allows you to pull up web sites from YEARS and YEARS ago.

    To help out newbies in the writing industry, what are some of the websites, forums and magazines we should be clued in to?

    At last week's meeting, I showed some small trade format books that represent how some authors are packaging novelettes and novellas for printing. They're very good stories, and I said that I would post the titles:

    The Man Who Bridged the Mist - by Kij Johnson

    The Ice Owl - by Carolyn Ives Gilman

    Arkfall - by Carolyn Ives Gilman

    All three stories are available in print or ebook. "The Man Who..." was the 2012 Hugo winner for Best Novella, beating "The Ice Owl," which was also nominated. "Arkfall" was, I believe a 2011 Nebula nominee.

    I forgot to ask people what we should talk about at next month's workshop. Self editing? Favorite on-line resources? Sticky words?
