CWC: We've Got a Name

Last night was the first official meeting of the novel group, and as the first official meeting, we weren't ready to critique yet. Yet, there we were, at the meeting, and it felt like we out to at least accomplish something more than just getting the 1st submissions.

Thus - brainstorm session. I don't know if "brainstorm" is as accurate as calling it something like "creative volleyball." One person serves an idea, it bounces around, and then you either score a point or you don't and the ball gets served again. At the end of the game, we arrived at a name everyone liked: Creek Writers Council. Now we're offical.

In other news, I just barely managed the 50 page minimum and realized two things.
1. Wow, I actually do have that much material for my thesis. Exciting.
2. Now I have nothing in reserve to bolster my submission for next time so I've got to get my butt in gear in order to once again meet the minimum. Crap.

Just think of it this way--that's less than a page a day. 2 page a day and you'll have more than the upper limit.

Easy peasy.

Of course, guess who's going to be whinging a week or two out from next time we're up to submit.

Yep, me.

Yeah, it leads to panic pretty quickly, I've gotta say.
