A big batch of success for our members is always inspiring! November’s Meeting was full of great news, our “Produce” round table was full of great tips and NaNoWriMo updates, we had our new board members officially signed on, and we had a great speaker for the workshop portion.
A big ATTAGIRL goes out to our whack of members participating in NaNoWriMo this month! It was exciting to hear about all the barriers that are getting blasted down as these gals are charging forth like linebackers!
Researching for a novel or story just got a lot less daunting thanks to the Vancouver Public Library. We got an overview of all the great resources available and I’m specifically really excited about the chat and email features that I didn’t know about before, where you can ask a librarian for one on one help with your research problems.
Congrats, Chocolates and/or Roses go to these members with publishing coups!
