Meeting Next Week!

Harks and alarms! Greetings and Salutations, Scribblers!

Our next meeting is Thursday, December 19, 7-8pm EST.

During this meeting we will discuss editing and publishing.
November NaNoEdMo Challenge
Watch the recording for editing tips and tricks. For this month, apply the Stephen King rule to your NaNo novel or a story of your choice. You should cut 10% of the words from your story. So if your story is 100 words, it should be 90 words if not shorter.

2nd draft = 1st Draft – 10%

Reading Assignment
In your email, you will find the short story “Out of the Woods” by Ben Loory. We will discuss the essay at our next meeting.

If you’re not able to join us this week, I will send out information about the assignment.
