It could have been worse. At least I wasn’t passed the wrong envelope on a stage while other celebrities looked on and the wrong big news had been verbalized and had to be retracted from people who thought all this year’s problems would be solved by winning an Oscar. And they may have been right about that. Ouch!
Thanks to loyal friends, the first Write for 5 launched quietly. Thank you so much to Candace, Michelle, Marjorie and Jo-Anne for participating. It was interesting to me that none of you chose the images to write to that I thought you might. I enjoyed reading each of your submissions immensely.
Maybe this week, I’ll just stick with one image posted again on Saturday morning, March 4th at 8:00 am (PST). I think the earlier the better on Saturday before the day gets away.
We will carry on, or at least I will, because I’ve always enjoyed writing to an image. It’s an easy kick start. I welcome anyone who feels so inclined to join in, perhaps especially if you’ve never written to an image as a writing prompt.
In the meantime, Candace in Uruguay will be getting a subscription to Geist for one year as the first person to post her writing this past Saturday. That was a one-time offer.
Here are a few events that I’m aware of happening this week related to writing. I’m sure that there are at least ten more, at minimum, because the Lower Mainland seems to have become a hotbed of literary events.
March 1: at VPL a panel of three writers will be at VIWF’s INCITE series. Janie Chang, Jen Sookfong Lee and Carleigh Baker. Sure to be interesting.
March 2: in New Westminster, BC, the Royal City Literary Arts Society hosts a workshop facilitated by writer Anosh Irani whose latest book, The Parcel, was published in 2016.
March 2: The Writer’s Studio Reading Series at Cottage Bistro takes place at 8pm.A
March 2: To Love the Coming End, a book launch by Leanne Dunic.
Clearly March 2 presents a dilemma for those who would, if they could, go to all three events.
Drop by tomorrow for inspiration to Write for 5. And ease into your week.
