What to Expect at Our March Meeting + February Recap

Here’s a brief recap of our February meeting:

  • Our word of the month (brought in by Amanda)  is Bumfuzzle which  Merriam-Webster defines as: to confuse; perplex; fluster.
  • February’s writing tip by Sherry M. helped us determine the difference between a simile and a metaphor.
  • Member Diane shared her writing and received feedback from the group.
  • Last, but not least, we learned that our group president and founder Cindy Moore is moving back to her native Utah this month. We’re happy that she and her husband have the opportunity to start this new chapter, but we’re very sad to see her go!
  • Also, Amanda announced that she may be relocating at some point in 2014.

With Cindy’s immediate exit and Amanda’s hopes for relocation later this year there will be a few roles to fill within the group at some point in 2014. We’ll try to make time for discussing this at the March meeting.

Here’s what to expect at our March meeting:

  • We’ll meet at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 13th at Spencer Road Library Branch in Houck Professional Room 212 (for directions to the library, click here)
  • Our writing tip will be brought in by Matt U.
  • Our word of the month will be brought in by Matt S.
  • The prompt for March is “If Only I’d Had My Lucky…” Participants will bring in any piece of writing, maximum of two pages in length, that they feel conveys the prompt.
