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.


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.
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.  🙂

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.
