#EdenLit - Meeting Recap - November 12, 2012

Airen Wolf Airen Wolf
Well it was a pretty great discussion this month and we have a member written story start this month!

We discussed forming writing circles or even writing buddies to help out the folks that want to write for SexIs. We are hoping this will polish up the articles and allow our best efforts to shine in the magazine. If you are interested drop me a note and we'll work out a time and place.

We also, much to Stormy's delight, discussed opening an opportunity for community members to host writing workshops for the rest of the community. So far we're looking at a possible review writing workshop and then some real in-depth looks at proofreading, and other writing exercises.

If you have any writing type problems you'd like to see discussed in the group or even as a workshop let me know!

We need to think about getting some guest speakers and other really fun type things going for the new year. Do you know of anyone in the literary world who is interested in entertaining while teaching the community tricks of the trade?
This is a paying gig so if you happen to know someone who might be interested drop me a note and we'll approach them. Our Stormy is primed and ready to spring into action!

Congratulations to Twisted Angel for being our spotlight writer this month. She will be receiving 1,000 points for the honor! Check out the SexIs article Gearing Up For The Holidays to read more.

We have an interesting guided topic this month and a story start written by SneakersandPearls!
Our topics this month are:
Open Topic- Whatever you are interested in sharing this is the topic for you. Everything from erotica to shopping lists (well ok we'd need more than a shopping list...maybe a poetic shopping list?) The point is if you write it we will read it!
Poetry Open Topic- As we've mentioned before EVERYONE writes poetry so share some of yours with us. Romantic, dark, poignant or downright silly share it all!
Guided Topic- Do you have a favorite Christmas Carol? Think about what that song means to you and then write a story, a memory, a poem, or whatever you feel sparked to write based on that lovely song....or perhaps you have one that you loathe hearing! In that case tell us why! Inquiring minds want to know...

Story Start By SneakersandPearls

"Even carpet is cold in the winter," I thought. I sat on the floor, back against the wall, legs stretched out in front of me. The chill bit my legs from my red-painted toenails to where my thighs reached up into my pajama shorts. The phone lay on the floor next to my left knee, still waiting for me to dial a number. Any number. I ignored it the way I would a child throwing a tantrum and continued to stare at the bare, sand-colored wall. I remained motionless on the carpet in the entryway of the house that used to belong to my parents. My name had been on the papers and on the mailbox since they retired to a warmer climate ten years before.

I stood, creaking and aching, like I carried the weight of the house on my back. I eyed the phone, but left it on the floor. The calls could wait. Instead, I reached into the closet next to the front door and grabbed my snow-pants and parka. I slipped them on over my pajamas then headed across the living room, kitchen, and out the back door into the snow-clad night.

I could see the dim glow of my closest neighbor's Christmas lights a half a mile away. I turned my back on them and lifted my face to the sky. The snow, still as heavy as it had been two hours before, hurried to the ground. My eyes searched for their origin, but the powdery flakes seemed to have come from a place outside of forever. I wanted to be wrapped in that infinity, insulated from the persistent knowledge that the phone still lay on the carpet, still waiting for me to start the calls.

Our next meeting will be on December 10, 2012 at 3 pm as usual! Let's all take a few minutes in the coming weeks to write something; it's good stress relief for the holiday season!

This all sounds so awesome. I am not a professional by far. But it sounds like something I would love!

Congrats Twisted Angel!
