    Sorry I won't be there tomorrow. I've been sick. I have a trip scheduled for a long weekend. There are things that must be done before I go,
    Have a great time everyone. See you all in a few weeks.

      Oh good! I'm sorry I didn't say hello. I guess I was too busy dancing. SooJ is a lot of fun. I hope you are feeling better now.

  • C.M. U.

    So, how do you guys deal with family members getting upset with the things you write?

    August 28, 2013

    • C.M. U.

      Hey Gail, I saw the film when it was at the Belcourt & then turned around to tell Everyone I knew to do the same! It was amazing & the twist really hit me in the gut.

    • C.M. U.

      It's not really my "elders" that I'm necessarily upsetting, since I have a close relationship with my folks, as well as my sisters. It's my brothers' family. As I've phrased it before, I have a "non-relationship"­ with them and felt it wouldn't harm or help the situation if I publicly wrote about it. Years ago, I expressed myself privately & asked for more. He never responded, so I guess I took that as Carte Blanche permission. Now, they want me to ask forgiveness. D@mned if I do...? BTW, thank you for coming to the show last night. It was wonderful to see you!

  • Melanie C.

    Elmore Leonard died this week and I thought the best tribute would be to post his top 10 tips to writers to this group-- http://www.nytimes.com/2001/07/16/arts/writers-writing-easy-adverbs-exclamation-points-especially-hooptedoodle.html.

      August 28, 2013

  • David G.

    I feel like I'm hogging the reading time. I'll pass this time if you don't mind.

    August 13, 2013
