Balancing this Writing Thing

coversquarebwI… I have the opposite of writer’s block, whatever that is. Writer’s overwhelm? Writer’s unblock? I don’t really know what it is, but between the release of two versions of Agrippa:

(black and white) and (color)

And my school  homework, Camp NaNoWriMo, and my Oakland Art Scene gig at the I have had my hands full. It’s not easy to keep up with my blog over here, or to figure out what to write about when. Do you have this problem? If so please comment below.

Because I am having trouble organizing my thoughts AND my calendar, my calendar is greatly on my mind. Some of the writing support groups I am involved with are meeting locally, and I would like to invite other Bay Area writers to join:

So… here are some upcoming local writer’s meetings I would like you to know about.


WrycripsWryCrips is a disabled women’s theater art group. The next meeting is on Saturday, April 6th at 4:30 pm. If you would like to attend, you must contact Patty directly by phone:

Wry Crips is a Berkeley-based disabled women’s reader’s theater group. It began in the early 1980’s, has had several performances over the years, was dormant for several years and got revitalized by one of the original founders, Patty Overland, in early 2011. Wry Crips worked on one piece all year to produce a performance in November of 2011 that was attended by almost 100 people on a beautiful afternoon. (You can see youtube clips of the performance and blogsite contains information).

Laurel Womens’ Writer’s Group

Meeting on Friday, April 12 at 5:30pm at the World Ground Cafe, 3726 MacArthur Blvd.

Sumiko and Andrea

Oakland California 94619.

At our last meeting:

1) Andrea found a terrific table for us in the back of World Ground Cafe. It seats up to eight. We decided that we will be meeting back there from now on if at all possible, and that we want to keep the group down to six to eight people, due to time constraints. Andrea will be arriving between 4:30pm and 5:00pm to grab us a table. Our next meeting will be April 12 (we meet every second Friday)
2) The group got an official name, “Laurel Women’s Writing Group”. Andrea said we can always change it if any guys ever join.
2) We decided that some meetings we will work on writing based on a prompt, and others we will work on goal-setting (that is, help each other set deadlines for projects we are working on). We spoke briefly about Camp NaNoWriMo in April as a target-setting opportunity.
