Some Items of Interest

Alice's laptop was DOA at the Best Buy "Trauma Center," and a replacement is on the way. She also has a new phone to replace the one she borrowed from her grandson.


Donna, Sarah, Jane, Bill (the Elder) and Alice have submitted true stories to the Reader's Digest 100-word story contest.

The Elder Bill's 100-word story is about not having a birthday party -- so we surprised him with one of our own!

Claudia has a book coming out soon.

Marcia sent a reminder that the deadline for the MWG contests has been extended until March 15.

Such an interesting, busy crew. A whole lotta good writing flows from these ranks. Apply butts to chairs and limber those fingers! Y'all have stories to tell. (Keep eyes on the Saturday Writers web site (it's a dot org) for callouts. And if you are an SW member, send your news of signings, publications, etc. Also jpgs of your book covers and where to buy them!)
