Hey, what with the holiday season about to burst upon us all like a big, giant water ballon, I thought I’d take a moment to get you up to speed on a couple of big events comin’ down the pike here at the Middle Zone.
First off, in the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, Nov. 27th. Many folks (but not all – sorry ’bout that!) take the following Friday off as well. Generally speaking, it’s kinda nice to relax, take some time off, and regroup just before the Christmas holiday season.
As for me, I plan to spend some quality time in front of the fireplace with Mrs. MZM. (Whether or not it’s actually, you know, fired up is entirely dependent upon our strange Houston weather. I mean, you never know…)
I also have a three-part blog experiment coming, celebrating Joanna Young’s writing theme this month: experimentation.
It’s sorta like a three-course progressive dinner. You’ve heard of those, haven’t you? Only in this case you won’t have to use any gasoline. The appetizer (Part 1) will be posted here at the Zone, the entrÃ©e (Part 2) will be posted at Scrambled Toast, and dessert (Part 3) will be posted at Joanna’s Confident Writing.
If all goes well (and the creek don’t rise), it will be published here, there, and there on Wednesday, Nov. 26th. Look for it!
Hey, our next What I Learned From… groupwrite project is approaching fast (loud whooshing sound). What with the first Monday in December also coincidentally being the first day of the month, I’ll be announcing our WILF topic this coming Monday, November 24th. So get ready to put your story-telling hats on.
That means, of course, the project kickoff is on the following Monday, Dec. 1st, which is right after most of us in America drag ourselves go back to work… after the aforementioned four-day Thanksgiving Day weekend.
Hey, just so ya know, ya know?
A Little Further…
Then some really BIG news is coming! But you’ll have to hold yer horses, friends; I ain’t talkin’… yet!
Starting right after our December WILF, I’ll have an announcement about something REALLY exciting coming up that will help us all kick off the new year in spectacular fashion!
Ya better hold onto yer hats, folks, ’cause I’m tellin’ ya; it’s gonna be absolutely finer than a frog’s hair – split three ways!
