We had an interesting speaker today. An older lady named Mae Graybill who was one of the original Rosie the Riveter's back in the early years of WWII. She worked out of Baltimore riveting the fusilage on B-26 Maurader planes. How fascinating it must have been to be a woman in those times working on building planes and ships - doing jobs that up to that time had been only for the men. She told us some good stories about her times in those days.
All told, I'm glad I went. I've returned with new energy and hopefully will be able to get some actual writing done tonight!
My goal for the month of July is a minimum of 50 pages of new work.

Tips and Teasers: Check your facts. Always. Just because you looked something up on the internet doesn’t mean it’s correct. Check several sources.
