    Hey folks:
    Is there any good recommendation for an accurate, well-written account of an experience on LSD? I'm looking for insight into the impact of LSD on perception. Um, for purposes of FICTION.
    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, I've had a relapse of this killer cold and won't make it Saturday. I wanted you to know my novel Shoplandia launches on May 15 with a few events in Chester County. Thanks for critiquing one of the chapters in it! Philly Writers Group has a shout out in the acknowledgements. I hope to see you in June. Thanks! http://bit.ly/1rM88Pz­

    I will be attending the annual Poconos Retreat weekend of the Children's Book Writers and Illustrators that weekend and hope to find an agent or publisher for Willy the Woolly Bear Caterpillar. Will bring back any workshop materials for the group in June.

    Today we had a successful meeting with four excellent pieces, approximately 20 enthusiastic attendees, and a ton of fantastic discussion of writing and books on writing. Afterwards, 7 of us enjoyed food and drinks at The Marathon Grill.

      I've heard that Thomas Kuhn's writings are very much worth reading. Both Popper and Kuhn seem to be the underpinnings of discussions about science and research. Reading them would probably have been more interesting than trying to figure out why my experiments were not working.

      I had actually collected quotes from both for my novel, but they were lost when my laptop died. :-( Backup backup backup....)

  • Heather

    I have to drive a bunch of boys to a basketball tournament Saturday so I will miss the month. If any of the writers who submitted work for this month are interested, I can forward my feedback separately from the meeting, or bring it to the next one.

  • Doug M

    If no one else has stepped forward yet, I'd be willing to moderate this meeting in place of Julius.

  • KC W.

    Yes. I thought that once they were finished, I could send them right in, but I was sadly mistaken. When the excitement died down and I proofread them, that's when the real work began. Now I'm working on designing the book covers.

    1 · April 25

  • KC W.

    I'm excited about meeting fellow writers. I am currently working to put four ebooks on Amazon in the next three weeks.

    April 24

    • GenePoz

      KC, you waited until you'd written the 4 books to put them on Amazon?

      April 25

  • Carly D.

    I wish I could make it but I will be out of town for work that weekend. Hope to see everyone again in June!
