New Providence Writers Extra Meeting

A second extra meeting  for June.

Bring a piece to workshop, up to 1500 words, any genre OK, including query letters etc. Make as many copies as the number of people coming to the meeting.

Note: If more than 8 people show up to this meeting, we may (or may not) divide the meeting into two groups to allow everybody enough time to present their piece and receive feedback.

Please arrive by 2pm because we try to begin promptly and finalize the decision to split into two tables at that time.  Arrive extra time to park in Summit, even when there isn't a street fair or mountains of snow occupying the best spots.

    I had hoped to join you all today but Dad is in the hospital again, this time for blood clots. I miss you all!

    Spelling error earlier today - it's Bette Davis. I see the name Betty frequently for another group so I need to check spelling :)

      Good catch! I knew that because I had to look up the movie reference for the quote and came across a TV clip in which she talked about how to pronounce her name. Forgot to change the spelling in the story.

    Found this article in the NY Times:

    Pretty funny stuff. :)

    Dear Friends,

    Some new members RSVPed for tomorrow. Welcome! Parking is free on Sundays in Summit, but you may have to circle if you want a prime spot. Waterlilies is downstairs - door to stairs and elevator is to the left of Dunkin Donuts. After descending, we're in the room to the left, but the room to the right (your other left) will also circle to our tables. We decide at 2pm whether we're one or two groups based on size - please be prompt. We do eat. Waterlilies has a large menu including vegetarian, sushi and thai food. We've been asked everyone order something, as little as a Coke is fine, or you may be presented with a check (think it's $3?) and fortune cookie later in the afternoon.
