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!
