We've arrive back in hot and humid Beaumont, but brought much welcomed cooler weather with us. (As if I could take credit!)
After cleaning out and cleaning up the RV and getting re-established at home I've been on the computer.
While driving, I use a digital recorder to make notes of all those writing ideas floating through my brain cells and it has paid off. I had an article accepted by my publisher in Alaska to be included in an anthology. The name of the book and release date have not yet been announced. I've submitted another article to a popular RVing magazine, and am working on two other Alaska themed articles.
Last night the newly formed Texas Gulf Coast Writers' Group met with Pam Thibodeaux as guest speaker. Pam formed the Bayou Writers Group of Lake Charles several years ago and presented us with many helpful ideas for our new group. Area writers are encouraged to join us at the next meeting: the first Monday night of the month at Barns and Noble on Dowlen in Beaumont at 7:00 P.M.
Monique has helped me set up a power point presentation of the Alaska Mission 2012 to be presented this Sunday night at West End Baptist Church. Last Sunday we shared moose meatballs and Alaskan home made jelly at our monthly pot-lunch dinner.On a later date we will be speaking at East Ridge Baptist in Lake Charles.
Thursday night I will attend a fund raiser banquet for the Pregnancy Resource Center East in Baytown. I will be giving away copies of "Adopting Darrell" in his memory. Books are still available if you contact me by email.
I'm pleased to announce that on Nov. 3, 2012, I will be guest speaker at the Bayou Writers' Group meeting in Lake Charles. I invite writers to come discuss DARE TO DABBLE, a method to foster creativity.
