Writer's website to check out

Some wonderful person sent me a website for creative writers. I am unable to link you to CRWROPPS-B (Creative Writers Opportunity Services) which updates daily. You do not have to pay to join. It is worth checking out, especially if you write flash or poetry. I never thought I could write poetry, until I took one of my essays and condensed it to a poem. I recently learned that is an exercise in writing flash. First you reduce a story to a poem, then you remove the line breaks and there is your flash story.

I sent off four Missouri Writer's Guild Chapter contest submissions yesterday and one non ficiton submission not affiliated with the conference. Then I slept ten hours!
I can't wait for this conference April 8-10, terrific speakers, agents, writers! I hope to see YOU there.

Have you written anything this weekend?
