About This Newsletter

Normally, the purpose of this newsletter would be to help New Members better understand their way around WDC. This time though, It's about just encouraging you to do what I can't. Write something new and be here as much as possible.

Letter from the editor

Sometimes I think the Universe is conspiring against me. Had you told me nearly two months ago--or is it three--that I would be without internet service, I would have told you you were nuts. But, that is exactly what happened. My phone company and internet provider got into an argument over the value of dial up and even though no one can get me DSL or Wireless, I am stuck without internet. Well almost, I do have a hot spot on my phone that works but I don't have unlimited data anymore so, I'm stuck. Hubby has assured me that he will have me satellite before NANOWRIMO but that was only after he came home to me crying because April had started and I can't do Camp Nano--maybe in July but I'm not holding my breath.

So whats a girl to do when she needs companionship to write? We don't have any local writing groups. So, that leaves me needing probably more than needs me. So what am I doing while I wait? Well, I am trying to keep at least some lines of communication open. But mainly, I have been editing my novel. You know that one thing most of us at least learned to hate to do but has to be done? This place is the main generator of my story ideas these days so I'm bone dry on those. The only thing left to do was edit. Maybe that was the universes way of reminding me that sometimes, you just have to disconnect from the internet and connect to your characters. It remains to be seen how well I can edit without the people here who catch all my spelling and grammar mistakes.

For all of our new members, dive in and enjoy yourself. Complicated and confusing, sometimes sure. Well worth the effort? Absolutely.

To older members who still get this newsletter... I will come back, I promise. I'm like that raccoon that keeps trying to break into my chicken coop. You can't get rid of me that easy and I will find my way back. So, while I am stuck fighting with my inner editor, everyone please sit down and write at least a poem or short piece knowing some of us, can't be where we want to be, doing what we want to do. But, you can.
