Updated to add: anyone who still wants to join should go directly to the Week 1 Check In and check in, following the required format. I’ve got everyone down to Kirstin, but I’d prefer not to have to keep checking back here.
We still have a week to go over at amstr‘s, so this is advance notice: I will be hosting the next writing group iteration, the Sept-Dec 2012 Group, so-called because I don’t want to assume that all participants are from the northern hemisphere. After all, when it’s fall (or autumn) Up Over, it’s spring Down Under.
(Have I mentioned that in my Ideal Life I fly, on the equinoxes, from north to south or vice versa, and so never have to endure winter cold or long dark nights? Anyone posting from the Southern Hemisphere is welcome to exult over signs of spring, and I will experience great vicarious pleasure as I imagine myself in my southern hemi-home.)
Anyway, we’ll begin where amstr leaves off, and have our first check-in on Friday, 31 August. The group will run for 15 regular weeks (a semester’s worth) plus “finals,” where we report final results; that last check-in will be Friday, 14 December (followed by a holiday party—with caipirinhas, not eggnog, if I have anything to say about it; see Ideal Life, above).
So leave a comment any time if you want to join in. Further details will be forthcoming.
And I should warn you, I probably won’t do daily inspirational quotes this time around. Maybe one or two a week, if we’re all lucky.
