The Eastside Writing Room-May and June

Posted by on May 27, 2020 in Event | 0 comments

We’re still writing and Zooming. Staying connected while apart.

Tuesdays 11:00-1:30. Two ways to do it:

  1. We set our intention for the writing time via email and check back in with the group at 1:30PM.
  2. Check into the Eastside Writing ZOOM Room via an invitational link. Click here to contact Ethel if you want to join us in ZOOM writing and/or for the email intention.

The Eastside Writing Room is for writing only. We do not critique. We are sharing a bit more than pre-COVID to catch up and “see” each other, but then off to our individual writing places at home and checking back in around 1:15.

It works. A virtual commitment keeps us writing.

Stay safe. Stay sane. Stay healthy.

Eastside Writing Room- April 2020

Posted by on Apr 7, 2020 in Event | 0 comments

The Eastside Writing Room is staying connected in April. We’re sticking together while we are apart.

How It Works

I will send an email every Tuesday morning @10:00 AM to prompt you to write at home for our usual 11:30 AM-1:30 PM time. Email your writing intention with “reply all” to the group. Check in again at 1:30 PM to let us know how you did.

Give yourself this gift of serene time. April 7, April 14, April 21, April 28.

Words are powerful- the words we write, think, and  speak hold great influence, whether it’s with a group, on your social media pages, with your neighbor as you talk across the street, or in your home with your family. Write your words today.

The Virtual Eastside Writing Room

Posted by on Mar 20, 2020 in Event | 0 comments

The Eastside Writing Room in Tucson AZ is staying connected. We may have to temporarily unlearn hugging while we conquer physical distancing, but we can stay socially connected. I will send out an email Tuesday morning March 24 and 31 @10:30 AM MST to prompt you to write at home for our usual 11:30 AM-1:30 PM time. Email your writing intention with “reply all” to the group. In place of telling each other what we did at 11:30, check in with an email. I’m using this at home writing to keep to some of my routines during this time of restricted activities. 

We started Tuesday, March 17. I reorganized and wrote text for my website update. 

H.M. did his “musings.” 

B.M. was sidetracked by home office stuff but has completed the manuscript for her memoir. 

P.B. sent in 4 submissions (there’s an overachiever in every group).  

R.S. sent a link to one of her stories that was printed online. 

B.B. sent greetings from the West Coast.

Come on. You can only clean out so many closets and shelves. Organize your 1000’s of .jpg photos later. Write with us on Tuesday. As writers we can be inspired to inspire others.

Odyssey Storytelling- Kale CANCELLED

Posted by on Mar 15, 2020 in Event | 0 comments

We’ve had our own reversal of fortune. A prudent cancellation of the April 2 show for Odyssey Storytelling means Kale will have to surface again at a later date.  NO SHOW THURSDAY, APRIL 2,  7:00-9:00 PM.

NO SHOW THURSDAY APRIL 2

Every month, six people are invited to tell ten-minute personal stories on a theme to a live audience. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller. In April, IT WAS TO BE KALE! Kale seems to be an unusual theme, but it’s for real. WHEN KALE RETURNS, I’LL BE A TELLER!
