** Fun Discoveries on a Tuesday **

First Fun Discovery: I had a really great day! Went to a critique group that meets every Tuesday and I enjoyed it. I already knew most of the members from Saturday Writers, and I'll definitely be going back.

Second Fun Discovery:  Here's another one of my Twilight Zone moments! Just yesterday I wrote about deleting my "writers competition rant" because I didn't want any Bad Karma........Well, today I received my Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop Newsletter, and would you believe they actually printed the following?:

With the announcement of the writing competition winners comes the realization by other entrants that they are, as 2010 workshop attendee Anna Lefler puts it, "winning-adjacent." What's a writer to do with that oh-so-close submission? Post it, of course, as did Joanie Buettgen, Anna Lefler, and Ann Imig. 

I'm only showing the link to Anna's because I liked her story the best. It is SO Erma!! And her writer friends all felt the same way we did! Remember that popular goofy character a few years ago, Where's Waldo?".....Aren't we all saying, "Where's Erma??!!"

Oh well....to paraphrase what I wrote yesterday......Whatever!!

I'm not sure how the Erma refrigerator thingy works, but it looks like fun! Anyway...go check out Anna's blog and let her know that Becky sent ya!

Happy Writing!

  1. Ha! What a great post, Becky!

    And thanks so much for the shout-out - much appreciated. I'm really glad you liked my essay.

    Take care and I wish you much success with your writing...

    :-D Anna

  2. Funny stuff!

    Wish I could make it to C & C. Now that it's mornings only, can't go unless I take vacation time!

  3. Thanks, Anna! I'm having Deja vu...I would've sworn I replied to this last night! Much success to you, too!

  4. Hi Pat! Wish you could be there, too. Now that you said that, I remember hearing it used to be in the evenings...and daytime, too? Is that right?..How about an early lunch hour?? :)

  5. By the way, Anna..love your photo!

  6. Hmmm-now see, the other Ann in that EB newsletter is a bud of mine-you're just traveling around on some parallel plane with me!

    (P.S. I thought all the entries were funny, too!)

  7. Whoa..Benevolent Miss Cathy C.!! This really is freaky!!
