October '07 Writing Marathon

Me: Do you know that the date for the next WM is yet?
Katherine: Yeah, it's on the Save the Date cards.
Me: Oh yeah. (I not only took care of getting them printed, then put them in mailings, I also wrote the dang things. You'd think I would've remembered something so obvious. Ha!)

So, the next writing marathon is going to happen October 20th, and I'm already looking forward to it. What a geek am I? The last community WM, in April, was a lot of fun. Some people wussed out on me, something about a writing convention... However, there was a good turn out otherwise and John trekked down from Springs to join the merriment. We added a couple of my school friends and were off about downtown. Very entertaining, and I wound up with some good story germs.

This next one is open to all ages, like the last one Jenny and Shane went to. They said it's fun that way, some of the kids are better (and more entertaining) writers than the adults. It'll be interesting, to say the least. I already put in for the day off from the bar, so I should be in good shape - though I am going to be babysitting overnight at some point in October, and it could well be that weekend. Still, the kids always have friends I can drop them off with. No big deal. Or, maybe one or two of them would want to come. That could be fun too.

You know, I haven't yet been to one of the all ages marathons. Being around all those children scares me. However, I'm wondering if it would inspire me to write some sort of kid lit. I've always loved it, but somehow I never seem to be able to write it. Sure would like to give it a try. (After all, you never know what you're good at until you try.) Maybe I'll come. Save me a seat?
