However, I have found something else to do, now. It may not be a lot, but it's something.
A quick scan back (I don't even remember) tells me that I haven't blogged about the Milk Wood Writers' Meet that I go to. I don't know if I've even mentioned it yet. If I haven't, then that's a great error, as it's the single thing I consistently go to, now. Sure, I still try to go to the Sunday Social, the Trivia, the Poetry Open Mic at the Blue Angel, but I feel like I'm allowed to skip them for a week. I don't feel like I can skip the Writers' Meet and, frankly, I have no desire to.
It's been going on for a few weeks now, and I think I've only missed two. It's possible that I've turned up more than anyone else, although nitewanderer may have me beat there. I am a True Regular, though, for all that's worth.
We congregate on Monday and Frida - 2pm SLT - around the Gypsy Caravan in Milk Wood, Scotland Inchcruin. The next hour - or two - is devoted to writing.
Now, apart from this thing, and only as long as I remember it, I don't do any writing anymore. I used to do a lot of forum RP, but the days of regular activity for me are months and months in my past. So, my writing ability is not good at the moment. It makes me cry. If I think about it, which I don't. If I'm honest, I go to the meet to socialise a little, and be surrounded by writers; perhaps the company will spark the ability in me again.
So, because I acted like the natural host (despite Harriet setting up and running it), it was only natural that I take charge a little when Harriet was incapacitated. I'm not going to bore you with the details, but the long and short of it is that Harrier made me a Milk Wood Officer. This gave me powers to send the notices for the meet and also deal with any unruly folks that should happen along (which fortunately hasn't happened yet).
Harriet runs Milk Wood entirely out of her own pocket and, because it's such a good cause, I'm naturally willing and eager to help her in any way possible.
I noticed that she hadn't made a post on the group's blog about it yet, and she explained that it's so hard finding the time, so I offered to do it, with a little hint and a shrug and a flutter of my eyelashes.
That post is available to read: Here.
Maybe if my blogging can be kept to an acceptable standard, she'll let me write some more :-)
Lukos up, up, and away!
