W is for Wednesday Scramble

How convenient is that? My Wednesday Scramble usually includes an announcement of Thursday's guest, but because of the A to Z April Blog Challenge 2011, I didn't schedule any guests this month. But I do have some other "W" stuff to talk about.

First, there's a writer's conference to promote. Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers has released the brochure and workshop description for Colorado Gold 2011 to be held September 9, 10, and 11 in Denver, Colorado. I posted some brief information and all the links yesterday at Chiseled in Rock Blog.

Then there are writing classes to announce from Northern Colorado Writers in Fort Collins, Colorado.

I'd like to give a nod to The Writing Bug: A blog for those who have caught it which participated in the A to Z Challenge with posts from regular and guest contributors. If you haven't visited them yet during the challenge, now's a great time to check out this arm of Northern Colorado Writers.

And finally, I can announce the end of my month of whining about everything from dial-up computer access to travel woes to catching the cold to end all colds. That should make everyone happy, especially me.

Pat, thanks for the plug for The Writing Bug. It has been a fun month of A to Z posts from regulars and guests alike!

Glad you're feeling better!

Margot Kinberg said...

Pat - Now that is great timing, and an inspired idea! Thanks also for sharing about The Writing Bug. I'll definitely check it out. So glad to hear you're feeling better, especially with those conferences coming up.

Hello there- found you through the A-Z challenge. I'm in Wyoming and we have a writers conference coming up this June- how exciting!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Jenny -- you all did a great job at The Writing Bug. I had fun in spite of my complaints, so I hope all of you did too.

Good morning, Margot. Be sure to scroll through some of the older posts at The Writing Bug. There are some good ones.

Summer, so nice to meet you. The Wyoming conferences look great. I'd love to get up there to attend one sometime. When my husband and I retired we actually thought about Wyoming first, but ended up in Northern Colorado which is slightly less windy and cold.

Ann said...

Oh that Conference sounds interesting. Never been to Denver either.

Jan Morrison said...

Glad you're on the upswing of spring! I'll check out 'the bug' - always like to find new resources...

Patricia Stoltey said...

Lots to see in Denver, Ann. And it's usually pretty nice in September.

Hi Jan. I think you'll like the bug.

Whining? You were whining? I thought you were just keeping me updated because I fell out of the loop with tis challenge.

Seriously, I'm glad you're feeling better.

I subscribe to Writing Bug and love it.

Kerrie said...

Pat, thats for the shout out for The Writing Bug and for the Northern Colorado Writers classes. I agree with GigglesandGuns, I didn't think you were whining. I give you 2 thumbs up for sticking it out considering how crummy you have felt.

Loved the W post Patricia and hope you're now fully recovered.
Take care.
Yvonne,

Kay Theodoratus said...

Write on, Pat.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Mary and Kerrie, thanks. I felt as though I'd cried on everyone's shoulder all month.

Yvonne, thanks for being a faithful follower. You're such a sweetheart.

Kay, write on is right on. Time to get back to work.

I love Colorado! I am a chef with the writing bug. I'm working on two memoir/cookbooks and I am in search of a publisher. Just wanted to say hi from the A-Z Challenge

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I didn't notice any whining...

Patricia Stoltey said...

Sandy, nice to meet you. Can't believe April and the A to Z are almost finished. Times sure flies when we're having fun (cough, cough).

Alex, you're such a gentleman.

Jemi Fraser said...

I'm with Alex :) Hope spring has chased away that nasty cold of yours!!
