Social meeting next week!

I bet you all have decided that our Social Meetings are only a myth.  We really do want to continue with these.

We will hold our next social on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 in Conference Room 100 of Durango Office Suites, from 6 to 8 p.m.  They are asking us to use a different entrance, so I have included the directions below.  BYOB and everyone can chip in on a pizza, unless someone has a better idea. 

Directions: Enter from 101 W 11th Street into the Crossroads Durango building (same entrance we use for our regular meetings.)  Follow the west hallway and Room 100 directional signs. Turn left and connect into the Durango Office Suites historic building. Follow this hallway and the conference room will be on your right.

NANO news from Holly Lisle

I turned fifty on October 8th.
I've made it a point for the last few years to do something cool
for the folks on my lists on my birthday...and this year, between
migraines, vertigo, launching Rebel Tales, and other things, my
birthday just got away from me.

But National Novel Writing Month starts November 1st, and I've also
done something cool for those madmen and madwomen of writing, the

This year, I'm combining the two.
If you join either my fiction-writing course How To Think Sideways:
Or my How To Revise Your Novel course:
AND if you do it ON or BEFORE November 1st, I'll give you a free
copy of each of the following two video courses:

How To Motivate Yourself
How To Write Subtext in Dialogue

Each of these courses currently sells on my site for $47.95. You
can see the details below.

Each course will appear as a lesson page in your student
area (which means you ALSO get my gift).

How To Motivate Yourself will be particularly useful for NaNoers
bracing themselves to confront the one-month novel---but so will
the NaNo boards in both How To Think Sideways and How To Revise
Your Novel.

Both bonuses will disappear November 2nd.
If you're already a student or grad and you don't yet have these,
now is the time to log in, watch them in the student theater, and
download your copies.

If you're not yet a student, come join us.
Join How To Think Sideways:
Join How To Revise Your Novel:
And Happy Birthday/ Happy NaNoWriMo! I hope I'll see you in class.
Write with joy,

P.S. Remember that November 1st is the last day to sign up and get
the video courses as my gift. I'll remove them at 10 PM EST
November 2nd. This will give everyone time to download them,
as well as to watch them in the student theater if you like.

Signing up soon will give you more time.
