Actually, I plan on not screaming.
If you guys remember from the old-old forum, it has befallen me to take charge of my local Christian writers group, and we have two members who make life difficult for the rest. One makes mysogynist comments to the otherwise all-female group
and the other makes derogatory comments about other denominations, one of which I happen to belong to.
You guys gave me advice on how to handle the situation this time. Well, in an hour, I'm leaving to head into the lion's den, and I'm going to have to put it into practice.
"Snarky, this is a writer's group and not a religious debate forum."
Lather, rinse, repeat.
"Mr. Macho, if you dislike the company of women so much, perhaps this is not the group for you."
"Excuse me, but that comment was out of line."
And every other etiquettehell trick you guys have taught me. I'm nervous. I'm stressed thinking about it. But by golly, I am prepared!
Cue the trumpets, ehellions. I'm a-going into battle!
