CLAW Meeting Updates

This is a reminder that for December, the CLAW meetings are scheduled for the first and third Saturdays, and not the second and fourth Saturdays. Based on today's turnout, I just wanted to make sure that is clear, and want to prevent people from coming when we're not meeting. Just in case, here's some eye-catching all-caps text:

WE WILL NOT BE MEETING ON DECEMBER 11. WE WILL INSTEAD BE MEETING ON THE 18th.

Please update your calendars and address books to suit. We will resume 2nd/4th Saturdays in January.

Please let me know if you have any issues with this.

And also, please allow me to introduce our newest attendee: Paige.

I'll be sending out something for review shortly.

See you on the 18th (and NOT the 11th)!

-Jacob

December CLAW Meetings

I'm sorry it took me so long to get back on this!

In December, the 4th Saturday happens to fall on Christmas, for which I'm sure (a) many of you will be busy, and (b) the center will be closed. As such, at our last meeting, Tim proposed the following plan: Move the meetings, temporarily, and just for December, to the 1st and 3rd Saturday (December 4, and December 18). Because of this, we will not have a 2nd Saturday meeting in December (December 11).

Our schedule will resume to the 2nd/4th Saturdays again in January.

Assuming nobody has any problems with that, that is what we will do. Please let me know if this will be problematic!

Meanwhile, I'll update the calendar to reflect what I've just said.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, too.

-Jacob

CLAW Updates

I would make the following announcements:

  1. There will be no 4th Saturday meeting in November, being that it's the Saturday after Thanksgiving and the Arts Alliance Center is closed (I updated the calendar to reflect that)
  2. Tentatively, in December, we were planning on meeting the 1st and 3rd Saturday. I say tentatively, as just now, I realized I still need to verify that the Arts Alliance Center will be open the last two weeks in December. I will call them on Tuesday to determine their days/hours of operation for December, and send a follow-up when I get back. Also, please let me know if the 1st/3rd Saturday in December is WORSE for you than just a 2nd Saturday meeting (the 4th Saturday being Christmas)
  3. In January, we will be resuming 2nd and 4th Saturday meetings (or just "suming" them, if we don't make a change)
  4. Please keep sharing your stuff electronically; it worked out well this last time

CLAW: Your "Homework" Assignment

Greetings, all.

I'm just writing to remind everyone of the "homework" assignment.

1) If you will be participating electronically, please try to e-mail something out by this next Saturday. We have two weeks until our next meeting, so I'm sure we'll all be a little forgiving if you get it out the week after that. Though, you'll lose points on the assignment (kidding!). Unless otherwise specified, we'll assume electronic responses are okay.

2) If you will be participating paperly (for lack of a better word), please be sure to bring enough copies for everybody at the next meeting. Also let us know if electronic responses are okay.

Please try to keep the writings relatively sized. I'd say in the neighborhood of 1,000 words (but that figure is purely a guideline, and totally negotiable).

If you have any special requirements for an electronic copy, please let us all know so we can be accommodating.

If you're reviewing, please try to get back to the author within a week. Since we have two weeks between meetings, that'll give everybody enough time to get those revisions in. However, I understand that since there are 8 of us, that'll mean everybody has 7 things to read in a week. In this case: the week isn't carved in stone. Just remember to give everybody the same respect that you yourself would expect. But I didn't need to tell you guys that.

If each of us doing 7 things (or more) in a week gets to be too much (I mean, we have to write sometimes too!), then maybe we can break it down into smaller review groups, to make sure everybody's getting the same benefits from the group. We can play that by ear.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me, or the group as a whole.

Pre-Meeting Sharing?

At our last meeting, we discussed whether anybody would be interested in sharing their stuff electronically about a week prior to the next meeting with other members, so that we could spend more of our meeting time discussing critique.

Does anybody have anything to contribute to this? I'm thinking that this should be voluntary to be both a reviewer and a sharer, since some people don't like reading electronically, and other people don't like not having control of the copies of their work.

For this system to work, I think there needs to be two things, besides a willingness to participate: (1) You should give what you take (that is, try to balance your sharing and your reviewing), and (2) You should not under any circumstances redistribute another person's work. Both these would be on the honor system.

I'm interested if anybody has any thoughts on the matter. We're trying a pilot project currently, and will discuss it with the meeting as a whole.

Update on Meeting Status for July

We have decided to relocate the meetings for the month of July. The new meeting location will be the Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library at 16616 Diana Lane, Houston, TX 77062 (http://www.hcpl.net/location/clear-lake-city-county-freeman-branch-library).

We will resume meeting at the Arts Alliance Center of Clear Lake in August, provided they are open on Saturdays that month.

Friday, July 9, 2010

IMPORTANT!!!!

The Arts Alliance Center of Clear Lake will be closed on Saturdays in July (something I just learned). Therefore, we will not be meeting there. Unless we decide to meet elsewhere, the meetings in Saturday will be canceled. Updates will be posted here and to the calendar when I know for sure.

Sorry for the inconvenience! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments about this.

Thanks.
