Write With Me! Study Hall, Monday, September 27, 2015

 

Moving Day!
 Hi, All! So sorry about last week’s missing study hall link. My early morning Social Security meeting became a nearly all-day affair, in which I was prohibited from linking to the Internet. This week, I also don’t have wi-if, because we are packing up our Florida house and preparing for the final move to Charlotte. But this time I’m scheduling the post courtesy of free Barnes & Noble (I know, evil empire, but I live in no-other-bookstore land) on Sunday, and then I’ll be easily able to catch up with you via my cell phone tomorrow. 

Not sure how much concentrated writing time I will get done this week, but after the packing, on Thursday I’ll be joining a workshop taught by Laura van den Berg (Finding Me, The Isle of Youth, What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us) along with Connie May Fowler and Parneshia Jones for a long weekend. More about that later! So I will be writing, all week long. 

So please check in and tell us what you’re up to. You could look at this, if you choose, as get-your-butt-in -the-chair-and-keep-moving-day. Let’s get it done–baxt (Good writing mojo, Romani style!)

      OH, and today Randi is facing her family’s sudden new, higher socioeconomic status. Trying to think how that might translate in today’s economy…hmm?

        Interesting–and unique–development. Keep us posted. P.S. I think you’ll find some good era-to-era economic stars online.

          Could you be more specific about any sources for era-to-era economy? I’ve accumulated some info just googling for price comparisons and everyday life…Gahh, never thought all that coursework and experience in scientific
          research would be used this way!

            Hi, Bobbie, you can find year-by-year data on consumer prices here: http://www.bls.gov/cpi/. The Labor Department has similar comparisons on wages. And Wikipedia has a great list of historical timelines where you can find dates of inventions, major car upgrades, and things like that.

            Bobbie, your local reference librarian will also be a resource on this.

              Thanks. I’m also drawing on a lot of memories, but I know to verify, verify, verify.

    Going ahead w/o your weekly prompt–between your moving, dodging Joaquin, flooding, etc, I didn’t really expect one–anyhoo, my ache-y butt (my joints seem to overreact to barometric changes these days) is in the chair.
    Going back today to edit and expand Randi’s earliest experience with ‘first-kiss’ Ken, then forward to their date. Randi will miss her parents’ curfew and be grounded, but then will reunion w/ BFF who’s been away all summer, and does Randi have a lot to tell her! And will she have some reactions!

    Signing out after being booted off once again by a blue screen. Didn’t get nearly as far as planned, but will be at it again tomorrow.
