Conversations with Calliope

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. A little late aren't you.
JOE: I decided to treat myself to a massage this morning.
CALLIOPE: Must be nice. Are you ready to get to work?
JOE: I'm relaxed.
CALLIOPE: What did you get done yesterday?
JOE: Quite a bit I guess. I spent the morning working on a publicity flier for my presentation on Writing for the Soul at the end of the month.
CALLIOPE: Can I see it?
JOE: I'll post it at the end today's entry and see what happens.
CALLIOPE: Okay. Anything else yesterday?
JOE: I did some more exploration of publicity and updated information about me in various locales.
CALLIOPE: Any actual writing?
JOE: No. I had some research to do for my next chapter. I would like to have my couple revisit their siblings and friends who appeared earlier in the book. I had to go back to find out what happened the first time around and what these people would be interested in hearing.
CALLIOPE: Do you plan to do some writing today?
JOE: That's my plan for the afternoon. Talk with you tomorrow. Following is the release, but with some of the formatting omitted:

Have you ever wondered about writers or wanted to be one?
Did you ever wonder why writers write, who people write for or how they write? Many people say they could write if they wanted to or if they had the time and think writing is easy. Others don’t write because they think it’s too hard. Join Dr. Langen for a discussion of these topics, illustrated by selections from his writings. He will share examples of his journal, blog, short story, newspaper column, novel, memoir and inspirational writings. Maybe it’s time for you to start writing too. This presentation is free of charge.
