Saturday Writers Extended Meeting
Forecast for St. Peters, MO: Chance of thunderstorms, high 85 degrees.
Members and visitors of Saturday Writers are in for a ten-gallon treat tomorrow when Dusty Richards, acclaimed Western Writer and two-time Spur Award winning author, shares his thoughts on "Developing Character and Setting." Dusty has published almost 100 books under his own name and pseudonyms. He is winner of the Oklahoma Writers' Federation Fiction Book of the Year Award and has been inducted into the Arkansas Writers' Hall of Fame.
The meeting starts an hour earlier than usual--at 10 a.m.--and ends at 1 p.m. at the St. Peters Community and Arts Center, 1035 St. Peters-Howell Road. Click on link for directions.
Prior to Dusty's presentation, as part of our 2009 goal of "taking our writing to the next level," I will give a brief writing tutorial on "Brainstorming." Yikes! I need to brainstorm about what I'm going to talk about on "Brainstorming."
Personal note: Happy birthday to my granddaughter Cari, who turns 15 today! She's growing up so fast--already talking about taking her test to get her permit. Next year, I wonder if she'll be asking for a car?
