Visitors ALWAYS Welcome!
From the TMTW Steering Committee
Unfortunately, life gets in the way many times. My husband developed viral pneumonia and gave us quite a scare in December. Then the holidays came so fast! Preparations for trip to see family we had not seen in over two years, baking, work you name it. My deepest apologies for not getting a newsletter out to all.
We are excited about this coming year! Those who attended the planning meeting came up with some great ideas and suggestions. Please complete the survey, Gay Ann sent out and return via mail or scan and email so that we may have your input as well..
We are revamping our meetings and Newsletter to a shorter format. If you see any of the sites you would like to visit, click on the link provided. There is so much writer assistance out there and so many contests to enter!
We would like to create a special Spotlight for the writers in our group and have a member submit something to be published in the newsletter. As we develop this idea, we will keep you posted on the requirements.
