Ernie Bowling

We had the pleasure of having Ernie Bowling as our guest speaker tonight. His humor-filled delivery was effective and enlightening. He gave us a genuine account of a self-published writer who writes to tell the story. Check out his profile and buy his debut novel “Coal Blooded.” You can purchase it via Amazon. Be sure to thank the Culottas for inviting him.

June 14 is our next scheduled meeting. We are going to have Charlene Ball & Libby Ware, Atlanta. They are speaking on collaboration. Our writing prompts include:

  • Great balls of fire
  • The shortest line beckoned me

Have a great month and keep writing.
