1. I have the place for us to eat. Station 21 in downtown Provo. We’ll need a head count, so let me know if you are coming. (22 W Center St, Ste 140)
I’ve chosen this place because they have a place where we can eat AND do our readings.
2. When? April 8, 2013. That’s the second Monday of April. (We can’t do it on April 1, because Kyra is in court. On April Fool’s Day! Scary.) As far as what time, we’ll decide on a late lunch or an early lunch. If you have a preference, let us know.
3. Be prepared with three pages of writing to read out loud. Depending on how many people there, depends on how much we get to read. There’s this old Hollywood saying (or, um, some saying) that goes, “Leave them wanting more.” Even if you want to read your whole novel to us, just choose 750 words.
Here is our quote. I quite love what Miss Flannery says here.
And I think she is dead right.
“People without hope not only don’t write novels, but what is more to the point, they don’t read them.”
