EGS Writers' Group

Thursday evening our EGS Writers' Group met for our February gathering. Unlike our January date, Thursday's unseasonably warm, dry weather allowed us come out in comfort and safety. Six of our regulars and one newcomer made up our number.

I am continually amazed at the talent displayed by this group. The sound of the timer marking the end of a reading is most often met with, "Ooh, no!" because we want to hear more. But, we know we have to give everyone their fair share of time.

Anna Moy and I joined the Family History Writing Challenge for February issued by The Armchair Genealogist Lynn Palermo. We are each committed to writing 250 words a day during each of the 29 days in February. We shared how it been going for us and what the process has been teaching us. There is still time to get involved if you're interested. You may be a few days behind but are welcome to pick up wherever you can begin. Just go to the link above to check it out.
