Some were in the midst of book writing, some were into poetry and we all dabbled in the blogosphere. Since I have had Poetically Speaking since 2008, I was a good resource for how to begin and how to get noticed. One of the women was busy finishing the second book of a trilogy she's both writing and self-publishing and brought a copy of Book One, entitled LEGS, for us to see. She also shared the expense of self-publishing. Later, she treated us all to an excerpt from the book.
As we all shared some of our writing, I read my poem, Penelope Pickle. You may recall that that was the poem I wanted to turn into a children's book. All the gals were very encouraging and the reaction was good.
One of the gals does have a blog which is both personal, almost diary-like but uses her personal story to create a devotion of sorts. We suggested a domain name for her blog so as to get it into the hands of prospective readers. Our plans are to meet once-a-month and to have accomplished additional steps in our own writing process to share the next time we meet.
Tonight's blog post is a poetic look at the day's activities.
