SinC Puget Sound


President’s Message

Dear Writer Friends,

I recently signed up for an online class in Mastering Suspense, Structure and Plot taught by suspense expert Jane Cleland. It’s offered through and is very reasonably priced at $25. And it’s a great example of a class that’s eligible for our mini-scholarship program!

A big thank you to Leslie Budewitz for her eye-opening presentation on “Common Mistakes Fiction Writers Make About the Law.” After viewing her presentation, I corrected three of these mistakes in my WIP.

We also applaud Mark Jacobs for the terrific job he did as chapter secretary. Mark brought expertise, judgement and humor to our exec committee meetings, but must step down due to the demands of his employment. Thank you, Mark!

Congratulations to our chapter members who are long-listed for Killer Nashville’s Readers Choice Awards: Susan McCormick, Charlotte Stuart, Kate Jackson and Gerald Elias. You can vote for up to ten of your favorites.

And finally, a reminder that there will not be a July meeting, but we hope to see you at the picnic in August!
