I’m due in an hour at my live in-person writers’ group, the Sisters in Crime of Upstate New York (aka the Mavens of Mayhem). Hey, Alexis Grant and K.A. Laity, it occurs to me that you can make this meeting too! We meet at the Orchard Tavern, 68 North Manning Blvd., in Albany, NY. There’s good pub food and drink, and a librarian will be talking about the book clubs she organizes and other library-related lore. All welcome – you needn’t be a member! As I’ve said before, what are the odds that three of us out of 22 in the world live within an easy drive of each other. We’re a nexus of power, gals!
As I tell myself to get off this computer, get my butt out of the chair and get dressed, I realize that the sharing that goes on in these blogs is a lot deeper and more useful than what I can expect at the meeting. On the other hand, I enjoy the company and the refreshments. I’m going to propose setting up a blog site for the group – there’s no link to them here, because we don’t yet have an online presence. I’ve promised to try getting a website up and running, but I think this kind of site would actually be more useful. Any thoughts on this, folks?
Okay, I’m off to Twitter and Facebook to announce the meeting once more. Don’t forget to watch the Preakness, everyone! I’m torn – I loved Mine That Bird in the Derby, but how can I not root for the filly, Rachel Alexandra? You go, girl!
