Mountain Writers of North Carolina

It seems the Mountain Writers of North Carolina, a writing group in Waynesville, NC enjoyed a delightful meeting on March 10.
According to Netwest member, Sonja Contois, "there’s magic in well-crafted stories, and this meeting was dedicated to bespelling each other. With the beauty of the written word, the resonance of a voice, and the expression of the author, two hours in heaven passed quickly."

JC Walkup, Netwest Rep for Haywood County, read a story, All's Well, about a couple that use sickly-sweet conversation while each plans the demise of the other. JC is an excellent writer and has published many short stories.

Merry Elrick is the author of The Rhubarb which is a sailboat that carries the reader on the journey of three siblings through disease, denial, and death.

John Malone, Haywood County Netwest Rep, read the poignant last chapter of his Heading Home, a historical novel based on the life of John’s grandfather.

Sonja Contois' story was The Troxley Women about a woman’s childhood memory of her grandmother, her grandmother’s button box, and “God putting her down.”

Maybe Not the Well-Worn Way by Dawn Jones tells the story of
Beatrice’s experience as she busses to the office, begins her workday, and sees her own reflection as co-worker Bob has a heart attack. Great O’Henry ending.

Charley Pearson, president of this writing group, read his Sentient Choice filled with quips galore as the court decides whether or not to tax the earnings of an evidently male robot that (or who) is intimately involved in the lives of the women called as witnesses.
