Let's MeetUp at the Willamette Writers March 5th meeting.

On Tuesday, March 5th, at the Old Church in downtown Portland, Willamette Writers welcomes renowned science fiction, fantasy and horror author William F. Nolan, who will speak to the membership on the joys and sorrows of a lifetime of creative writing. With more than 85 books to his credit, plus over a hundred scripts, articles and short stories embracing a dozen genres, William F. Nolan is an official Living Legend (voted that honor by the International Horror Guild in 2002). When he accepted the award, Nolan said "it was better than being a dead legend." He further posits that he's "just a hardworking man doing the best he can ... and if you're around long enough, you'll eventually get attention."

    Nolan had some funny anecdotes -- especially, "...you've got to lose the mummy."

    No information was provided about parking, so I parked in the lot next door to the church. I put $.50 in the parking machine next to the lot, got my stub and placed it on my dashboard. When I got pack to my car I was greeted with a $43.00 parking ticket. Not a happy writer.

    I live in Salem, and decided I had to choose between this and Thursday's in Eugene.

    I happen to have Friday off. And Thursday is more focused on nuts and bolts of writing. So, there ya go. Hope you all have a great time tonight!
