There's no trick to being a humorist when you have ...

"The whole government working for you."  So says Will Rogers.  One might say his wisdom remains relevant today.  We'll continue our discussion "Why do we write" and entertain more limericks and five-item stories.  We'll also continue the day-meet discussion regarding film vs. written works and the use of technology to enhance or detract from original stories.   Many of you will want to discuss publishing, editing, marketing, and such.  Those items also will be on the agenda.  We look forward to seeing you.

    Well attended, with several presentations. Afterwards, I have never been so drenched in waiting for a bus. Juicy moments. Never forget your umbrella. Nor, in this case, towel.

      But did you take note of that delectable moment when you've shed your wet clothes and surrounded yourself in your favorite dry house attire with still damp hair and face to settle for the night? Every storm cloud generally holds THAT particularly delicious silver lining.

    Agreed. Good meeting with enjoyable and lively conversation. For future meets we're looking to bring in guest speakers to offer insight on various subjects. Sorry. No clowns.

    5 word entry. Here's mine. I'm not exactly sure how to submit.
    "And so -- to make her point -- like a separatist, libertarian…or contrarian phoenix, she donned her garage sale monocle and kumquat-print kaftan, pulled her uncle's blues harp from its customary nest in her bra, settled herself on the cold remains of the campfire and began to serenade …the lilies. She may NOT have been understood, but was, at least, noticed."

      It was six words and you used them all. Nailed it, in fact.

    Are there any leftover unused words for additional 5 words stories?

    For those up for another five-item challenge, we're reaching back to those items that didn't make the cut in rounds one through three. It's not required, but if you want to play, please see below

      Phoenix, separatist, blues harp, kumquat, and lilies. The sixth replacement item is monocle. No word limit, but if you hear snoring from the audience ....
