Let's hang out!

Read this post about how to conduct writers' hangouts in Google+. Seems clear that I should form a TPR circle and we should try this out. There has been lots of talk about this in our TPR chats. We explore ways in which we could possibly do a Brady Bunch style chat (remember the lead in to the show? The other famous old-era example would be Hollywood Squares). Skype requires money for group calls and gchat only allows one person at a time.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Have you tried Google+? What do you think of it so far? And writing circles? Are they gonna be all the rage?

Watch this hangout video.

Makes you wanna do it doesn't it?

In the meantime, I am installing a guestbook over at TPR. I encourage you to sign in if you have ever visited or participated in TPR. As always click through that door to see what you find on the other side. Hopefully I will have the book all ready for you! I will publish links in The Practice Room to make it  easy to keep up with fellow practice room writers. (Idea thanks to the great Heather Kelly.)

We had our first Google+ Hangout at TPR on August 3rd at 2 pm EST. Click through to see how it went.
