“ It begins with a character usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.” – William Faulkner

Our webmaster still needs members to email their preferences for biographies to be posted on the TWS web page. Tell her to post your old bio, send in something new, or state you do not want to submit anything. As of Saturday, only eight members had sent in an update. Pat will re-post another handful of members’ old bios. Our group has thirty-two people. Latecomers, please send something in. See the last newsletter in the TWS yahoo files for content guidelines.
We continue to work out a few kinks. To distribute your written works to others, the best way is to email it as an attachment to Yahoo group. Every TWS yahoo member will get it. In case somebody misplaces it, you can also post it in “Files” on the yahoo web site, where every member can access it.
Happy Veterans Day to our members who are veterans. In honor of the day, here’s twenty-six veterans’ short stories for reading. You never know when you may need to have some military background information for a character or setting in one of your works. http://www.helium.com/knowledge/170393-short-stories-the-veterans-day-mystery.
