Janice Thompson presided over the meeting--which meant we had cookies after lunch. Those of you who couldn't make it missed out. She also hosted a give-away, 2015 calendars and her 3-Minute Devotions for Families.
Kathrese McKee masterfully held our attention with her speech, "Preparing for Disaster, Saving Your Manuscript from Oblivion," and fielded questions from those of us who are technophobes.
If you missed it, she has generously provided the link to her notes, so you can read the outline to the entire speech "here."
My favorite Kathrese quote had nothing to do with computers: "We are never done learning English." How true is that?!
Congrats to our WOTS members!
Selah Award Finalists: Donn Taylor, for Lightning on a Quiet Night, and former member, Mary Hamilton, for Speak No Evil
Genesis Semi-finalists: Stacey Zink
Golden Quill (Desert Rose RWA) Finalist: Carla Rossi
Coming Thursday, June 4
Don't forget our "Write-Out" Day! We're having a field trip to the National Museum of Funeral History, 415 Barren Springs Dr., Houston. We'll meet at 10:00 and have lunch together after the tour. Entry fee is $10.00--unless we can swing 25 attendees, then we can qualify for the group rate of $8.00. Bring pen and paper. You never know what'll inspire you!
You can learn more about it "here." Contest is open for entries on June 1! Also, don't forget about last year's anthology, featuring many stellar authors including Annette O'Hare, Carla Hoch, Linda Kozar, and Crystal Barnes.
Meeting on June 20th
Regular time and place. Don't miss it!
