Many of us are finally gathering our wits after the Northern Colorado Writers Conference. It took me that long to gain my balance again. The two weeks of slain didn't help.
Slain? The ungodly mix of rain and snow not needing a shovel, but requiring socks and an umbrella.
If you missed the conference, well...I won't rub it in. The marvelous Colleen M. Story wrote up a little something about it. Yes, THE Colleen M. Story the Beard is already tired of hearing about. She clearly made an impression on me about the difference between working too much and being productive.
She's also a pretty snappy dresser. Just saying.
If you're here, you've been bitten by the bug. We all have. It's an insidious virus frequently responsible for loss of sleep, the pile up of dishes, and the constant conversations with absolutely no one.
If you're new to NCW or The Writing Bug, we've made some changes to our routine. We've said teary goodbyes to some of our bloggers and cheery hellos to a couple of new ones.
The blogging schedule has changed a bit. Rather than deluge you with content every day, we'll have a new post once a week.
We also have some floating guest spots. If you're interested in writing something for us, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what we can arrange.
Being local means you can join us once or twice a month for our member events. It's good to put on street clothes once in a while and we'd like to see you.
Also, it gives your pets a chance to miss you.
Much gratitude for tuning in every week and seeing what our merry group has to say about writing.
All of that said, write. Write as though your life depends on it. Write as though you're saving your sanity. For some of us it's too late, but save yourself!
