  2. It's awesome to have this blog, Michelle! Thanks so much for getting it going.

    I encourage all members to visit the blogs of other members and "like" the posts, RT them, comment, subscribe, or whatever suits your fancy. I just realized that our own member, Meghan Ward is in Nepal and experiencing the trekking journey of a lifetime! I've left a comment on her travel blog, liked her FB page and am following her on Twitter. I encourage all of us to try and extend the same acts of encouragement to each and every one of our members. I, for one, really appreciate it when my fellow PWAC members drop by my blogs and say hello.

    Please do, and happy weekend!
    Doreen.

  3. Congrats Irene on your new book and your readings.And hi to Doreen with thanks for your encouragement of us all, you are a powerhouse, and I am still hoping to come to Winnipeg for a McNally presentation when I arrange for someone to arrange a tour. Meanwhile I am spending most of my time getting a new webmaster to 'finish' my website www.lynhancock.com which went on line, unbeknownst to me long before it was 'finished'. It is probably unique to show all one's trials and tribulations of the journey to completion for all the world to see as is the present case but I have 'to laugh' - one thing that saves writers, at least this writer, is a sense of humour amid disaster. You shouldn't go to the site yet till it has more 'work' but of course you can and then when it is 'ready' I will announce it officially. Lyn
