Notes from Friends

Hi Everyone,

Here is a new feature for our site.  Occasionally I receive notes and personal updates from our writing group members.  If they write and let me know what’s going on in their lives, I will try to publish it here.

With this in mind, here goes . . .

FROM LIESA- 8.24.14

Hi Everyone.  I will be monitoring on Thursday, Sept. 4, but will not be sending the invitation until Tuesday the 2nd. Sorry for any inconvenience.

FROM NANCY PALSULICH-AUGUST 20:

I have booked a 2 bed hotel room for conference. I’d be happy to share one or both nights with anyone (girl type) from our critique group. Cost for 1/2 the room is $61.00. Much better than the $175-$185 the hotel is asking now that the block is sold out.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you’re interested. Email Liesa about it.
FROM JAMES NORRIS – AUGUST 15:
SWP Peeps,I’m looking to book a room at the Westin for the conference and was wondering if anyone would like to share.  I’m going book a room two twins regardless in case someone unexpectedly comes down with a case of the drunk and needs a place to crash.

And this is for all of you:  I’ll promise I’ll keep my hands (and other…) to myself.  🙂

FROM JERRY COOPER

I recently moved to South Dakota to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation where I will be teaching English at the Red Cloud Indian High School.  I am still writing. Say ‘hello’ to familiar names and faces for me.

Sincerely,
Jerry Cooper
