Hi Everyone, This is a reminder that TOMORROW night we are launching the Writer's Club in the Friends Community Room. Remember, please: NO PASSWORD IS REQUIRED TO ENTER ANY OF THE ROOMS ON MY VIRTUAL SERVER. A reprint of the original announcement is below so you will have all the information at your fingertips. Pat Price Writer's Practice GROUP To Begin Tuesday, October 30, 2007 Leader: Mayrie ReNae Email: mrenae@xxxxxxxxxxx Date: Tuesday, October 30, 2007 Time: 6:00 p.m. Pacific, 7:00 p.m. Mountain, 8:00 p.m. Central and 9:00 p.m. Eastern Where: Friends of Bookshare Community Room at: http://conference321.com/masteradmin/room.asp?id=rs7867a2369e0e Do you like to write? Would you enjoy writing with other people who feel the same way? If practicing writing with other people sounds like fun, come and join THE WRITER'S PRACTICE GROUP! Bring your favorite writing implement! We will write together, read aloud what we've written, and discuss things that we can do to become better writers. Some prompts will be provided to inspire you to begin composing in your own writer's notebook. We will learn and talk about techniques that we can use to become more productive, and more accomplished writers. Between meetings, we will work on writing topics to share and comment on during the next session. After the formal meetings, we can just hang out for a while and be high on writing together! About the Leader: Mayrie ReNae's love of creative writing began early in her life and has increased through the years. During her academic pursuits she availed herself of every creative writing class the universities offered. Now, with the launch of the Friends of Bookshare Writer's Practice Group , her wish to share her knowledge and passion for writing with other aspiring writers and to nurture their enthusiasm for the craft will be realized. When asked during a recent interview what she perceived as being the real benefit of the newly formed CLUB, she commented: "My hope for a group like this is that folks might find a place where they can share their writing, interact with others who are equally interested in improving their writing, can act as sounding boards for each other in regard to issues with particular works in progress, to offer writing topics during each meeting for the group to jump start creativity, and also connect the group in a way that would "encourage working together." There are no membership requirements, no direct costs, no need to pre-register, and no passwords required. All you need is a PC running Windows 2000 or later, an Internet connection, a sound card, and speakers. (Mac and Linux access coming soon.) Since this is an audio chat, a microphone will be needed to allow you to interact audibly with the presenter and each other but text chat is also available. If you are a first-time user of the Accessible World online conferencing software, there is a small, safe software program that you need to download and then run. A link to the software is available on the entry screen of each room..
