The Starving Activist is the sometimes-home for words. AR Neal (that’s me) finds them, cultivates them, and leaves them here. Enjoy.

Flash Fiction Workshop Coming Soon!

Hello all:It has been about a week since last I posted; so much has been happening in that time. I have been working on some things for our church's anniversary, which is coming this Sunday, 2 March. I have of course also been doing my usual technology explorations (new Linux distro, anyone?) and had the pleasure of going to the Justice Conference in Los Angeles on Saturday.But that's not why I'm here right now.As you know, I participated in last November's NaNoWriMo; in the course of that, I joined up with a couple of online groups whose members are local to me. On one such Facebook group I mentioned something about offering a flash fiction workshop and got some positive feedback.The deal is, there will be two weeks of online stuff beginning 20 April and ending 2 May and then a face-to-face meeting on 3 May of those in the SoCal area who are interested in coming. I have been toying with the idea of doing something like a Go To Meeting, where those of you parked at other places in the interwebz could at least participate through chat. Not sure on that, just thinking you unnerstand.So I'm posting now to find out if any of you might be interested in attending at least the online part if not both. If you are, fill out the form. Once we get closer to the date, you'll get an invite to the private site where we'll be meeting. You'll have to register (it's a Wordpress site and there will be a "register" link) and then you can get into the site and interact.I hope to see you there![contact-form subject='Flash Fiction Workshop'][contact-field label='Name' type='name' required='1'/][contact-field label='Email' type='email' required='1'/][contact-field label='Website' type='url'/][contact-field label='I want to participate in the flash fiction workshop!' type='checkbox' required='1'/][/contact-form]
