I'll be closing the group for the month of February, and I haven't quite decided yet if I'll continue the group after than. I may not. The purpose of 15-Minutes-of-Fame was to bring the best in writing from all across dA, and I haven't had the time or energy lately to do the scouting that the group really deserves. I'm also won't be available part of the month, anyway, because we'll be celebrating my grandfather's 100th birthday! So that figures into it, too.

I'm sure all you folks will keep busy writing, especially folks doing the the Glory-Be-Project. February's a short month. The group will likely be back before you know it. I'll certainly keep you informed, if otherwise.

Have a great February, writerly folks!

100 years on this planet is a heck of an achievement! Hope to see the group back on its feet soon. Be well.

It should be nice. And I hope to. We'll see, after a bit of a break! I haven't done the group justice lately.

Oh, I understand. I wouldn't mind a break, myself.
But you'd miss it, so I'll see you back there soon. ;)

Ha, well it's possible my job may suffer a wee bit, lol.
Don't go tellin' my boss, though. :shh: Priorities. Hahaha...

How exciting to be celebrating your grandfather's 100th birthday! Happy birthday to him! Hope y'all have fun.

I'm hoping you keep the group going once you get back. :nod:

Thank you. It will be fun (though a quick-turnaround trip!).

Ah, a trip! Well be careful -- the weather's been a strange duck lately. :heart:

Yeah, I'm worried about that. We drove down there in a snowstorm once. Not a lot of fun. The upside of it was that the freeways were almost empty of cars. ;)

Are you headed to S.IL? I think you mentioned once you had family down that way? Well I know in the Chicago area temps are supposed to plummet tomorrow. So, I don't know how soon you're headed [this way-ish?] but definitely be careful!

P.S. My grandfather's family farm was in S.IL, though.

His farming background may well explain his longetivity, too.

Nope. Northern California. But there's a mountain range between us and them (the Siskiyous).

I'd certainly be unhappy to see the group closed. But happy 100th to your grandfather, that's an amazing feat to reach that age!

You should see his son, my uncle. He's mid-60s and you'd never guess it. Unfortunately, I didn't inherit those particular genes.
