A Few Tidbits

Is that right? Is it tidbits? Tid-bits? Tid Bits?

Don't know, however, I digress. Here are a few tidbits of news. First of all, we've been meeting with other writers on the Western Slope (of Colorado, that is) to get Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer meetings and events happening on our side of the mountain. We've met with great enthusiasm and a couple volunteers already. We're looking forward to making new writing friends.

The first Western Slope RMFW meeting is slated for November 19th. If any of you are in the area and want to join us, give us a holler. The meeting will be held at 800 Colorado Ave, Grand Junction from 9:30 to Noon.

Secondly, Marne and I are doing a story bible mini-class at the meeting. We worked on the presentation tonight and all I can say is  - Marne rocks! She's already given this class online, so she had the majority of the work done.

Lastly, Mike, Marne and I are doing NaNoWriMo this year. Marne found us a wonderful place to write, complete with kitchen, living room, family room, and a huge dining room table. Nope, not her house, but an adult daycare center which is empty every evening. It's perfect!!!  Again, we are meeting new writing friends, this time through the Grand Junction NaNoWriMo group. Our little offshoot is the Delta/Montrose branch of the GJ organization.

Come join us on Tuesday nights in November:

1402 Howard Street
Delta, CO

And if you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, see this website:

Do you have any writing news you want to share?


  1. I've never done NaNo. I didn't realize people actually got together and wrote in the same space. I see how that would be VERY motivating. You can yell at each other to get off the internet and get back to work. :P

  2. Vicki included me in the NANO thing but I'm doing revisions. Not really NANO. But it is fun to work while others fiendishly peck away.

    Any of you writers way out West where the wild sun sets and the coyote bays at the moon (sorry, got lost in a song) ought to come join us at the meeting and Tues.

  3. That's great that you guys found a way to support each other for (what sounds to me like) the grueling endurance test of NaNoWriMo. Keep us posted. Or better yet, keep writing and give us a rundown in December.

    (Random--does anyone else get distracted by the captchas, making up definitions for the nonsense words meant to confuse bots? Today's was 'recali' which sounds like going back to California. Now I have "Going back to Cali" stuck in my head. Is this a writer thing?)

  4. Also, I believe 'tidbits' is correct.
