San Diego DimeStories Announcement

Hi DimeStory Folks!

I’m excited for our upcoming Friday, September 8 DimeStories with Steve Montgomery as our guest host followed by our San Diego DimeStories 13th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, October 13 with guest host and founder, Amy Wallen!

REMINDER: We have gotten off track with our 3-minute time limit, I for one, have to get my writing under control! Let’s see if we all can cut our prose a little shorter and honor our history of 3-minute DimeStory writers! There are many benefits to the time limit and one is that our writing is more concise and it carries a stronger punch. I keep going over at 475 words, so this month I am dedicated to trying 400 and timing myself so I can make sure I finish on time. Let’s all challenge ourselves to under 3 minutes for September and that way when Amy comes in October we will make her proud 🙂

September 8 DimeStories kicks off the San Diego Writers, Ink 2017 Fall Writers Conference: http://www.sandiegowriters.org/2017-0908-to-0910-fall-for-writing-conference/

Let’s have a fantastic fall!

Guest Host:
Matt Wolf, author of the Ronin Saga

Matt Wolf was born on March 14, 1986 in Southern California. He traveled as a child and studied Old English and Japanese. He graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Literature with specialization in Medieval Literature and Japanese. With the combination of too much solitude, breathtaking landscapes, and a heap of books, Matt began The Ronin Saga (The Knife’s Edge, Bastion of Sun, Citadel of Fire) at the age of eighteen.

Matt now writes out of his home in California where, while crafting worlds of magic, he often forgets to eat. If he’s not writing, Matthew tours comic conventions, schools, libraries, and bookstores to spread the word of the Ronin.
To find out more about Matt and the Ronin Saga, go to Matt’s website. (https://www.roninsaga.com)
