Without Sugar Coating
If you’d like to improve your writing by working with other talented
writers, please join us on the 2 nd and 4 th Tuesdays of each month at La
Madeleine’s restaurant in Katy near I-10 and Grand Parkway. We meet at
6:30 PM. More information at: www.meetup.com/writers-908. There is a
$1 voluntary donation. Since the restaurant donates the space, we also
ask you to buy something from them. A cup of coffee is fine.
We believe that writing critiques should be honest and helpful, not
sugar-coated. To do this, we’ve established a clear credo for our writing
• I will be honest, thorough and fair in my critiques.
• In all cases, I will be polite and respectful.
• When someone else is giving a verbal critique, I won’t interrupt. I’ll wait
my turn to present my view.
• It is not my job to teach other writers how to deal with criticism. It is my
desire to help them improve their writing.
• I understand writing skill and experience levels differ. I will tailor my
advice and tone to the skill and experience of the writer whose work I
• I will endeavor to make my critiques solution-oriented. If I have a
“problem with X” (character, plot, scene, etc.), I will either propose a
solution to the problem or an approach to develop a solution.
• When I offer a critique, it is simply my opinion. I’ve been known to be
wrong. If I have a spouse, he or she can confirm this.
• This is a writer’s group - and I am one member of that group. I will
endeavor to allow everyone the opportunity to offer their opinions.
• Written critiques are only useful if they can be understood. I will make
my commentary as clear as I can. At my discretion, I can provide my name
and indicate if I’m willing to elaborate outside the meeting.
• There is little value in pointing out each spelling and grammar error in
a verbal critique. I will indicate such errors with written comments; in the
verbal critique I will provide a more summarized comment on general
spelling or grammar.
• I will accept differences of opinion with grace.
• I will be concise - so that more work may be heard and critiqued.
• I will give praise where praise is due.

September is National Suicide Awareness Month. Also known as Suicide
Prevention Month, the month brings awareness to a topic not often
Everyone is affected by suicide, not just the victim. Suicide impacts family
and friends long after the loss of a loved one. On average, one person
commits suicide every 16.2 minutes. Two-thirds of the people who
commit suicide suffer from depression.
One way to help prevent suicide is to increase access to treatment for
depression. However, identifying depression can be difficult. Not all
people who suffer from depression show signs. The first step in identifying
someone who is suffering from depression and contemplating suicide
is to see how serious the issue is. Talking to the person involved and
asking about their thoughts will decrease the trigger of suicidal action.
Suggesting a counselor or treatment for depression might also help.
Often, people who are depressed need a caring friend. A common fallacy
is that people who talk about suicide never act on it. If a friend or loved
one is talking about suicide, it’s time to get help for that person. The
mental health of yourself or a loved one can never be taken too seriously.
Whether the weight of a long-term struggle or a crisis weighs you down,
allow friends, family or a profession to lighten the burden by finding
support. There is no shame in seeking help.
Learning about suicide prevention during the month of September is a
great way to educate yourself and others. If you or someone you know
needs emergency assistance, contact the National Suicide Prevention
Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. Find more help at www.nami.org/Find-

ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION INVITES
KATY/WEST HOUSTON RESIDENTS TO
JOIN 2020 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S®
Participants will Raise Critically Needed Awareness and Funds for
Alzheimer’s Care, Support and Research. The Alzheimer’s Association®
is invitingKaty, Fulshear, Cypress, Richmond and other West Houston
area residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in
the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.The Walk will take
place on Saturday, September 26, 2020,The Katy/West Houston Walk
to End Alzheimer’s continues, but instead of hosting a large gathering,
the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging participants to walk as
individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across Katy,
West Houston, Fulshear, Richmond and surrounding areas.
Time-honored components of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s are being
replicated. On walk day, an Opening Ceremony will feature local speakers
and a presentation of Promise Flowers to honor the personal reasons
participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia, all
delivered to participants’ smartphones, tablets and computers. A small
group of Alzheimer’s Association staff and volunteers will create the iconic
Promise Garden in a “view only” format on Walk day on commercial Blvd
along the original walk route to honor all those impacted by Alzheimer’s.
To enhance the participant experience leading up to the event and on
Walk day, new features are being added to the Walk to End Alzhemer’s
mobile app to create an opportunity for the community to connect.
Participants can use the app and new “Walk Mainstage’’ to track their
steps and distance, follow a virtual Walk path, manage their Facebook
fundraisers and access information and resources from the Association
and Walk sponsors to help individuals and families affected by the
disease. A new audio track is available to encourage participants along
the way and to congratulate them upon completion of their Walk.
There is no registration fee for participants. Sign up today as a team and
encourage your friends, family members, neighbors, book club, gym and
coworkers to join your team and start walking today!! There are many
incentives to raise funds but our main objective this year is to increase
participation in this growing community and increase awareness. For
more info, please visit www.alz.org or call 800-272-3900.

8 TIPS FOR STUDYING AT HOME EFFECTIVELY
1. TRY ACTIVE STUDYING: Active studying is
as simple as asking questions before, during
and after study time. Not only does this help
to give your study session direction, but it also
helps keep you on track and reflect on how to
improve for your next study session!
Questions to ask yourself before you study:
What am I about to learn?
What do I already know about this subject?
Questions to ask yourself while you study:
How does this information fit into a bigger
Do I understand what I have just read?
Can I paraphrase it?
Are there any key words or ideas that I need to
write down? Why are these words and ideas
Questions to ask yourself after you study:
What can I take away from this study session?
What do I need to review or learn next time?
HOW TO STUDY AT HOME
(WITHOUT GETTING DISTRACTED)
Studying at home has its perks: it’s a comfortable, low-pressure environment. However, there
are a few reasons it can be difficult to study at home; with so many distractions, it’s easy to
procrastinate-when you do start, it’s easy to get off track.
At home, procrastination and distraction can prevent you from accomplishing what you
need to get done. Watching TV, taking a nap, scrolling through social media or other activities
(maybe even cleaning your room!), are big productivity killers that take you away from your
goal of studying for or completing that assignment.
Fortunately, there are a few tricks you can use to help you be more productive. Here are 8
ways to help you stay focused and get more done when studying at home.
2. GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP: Students of all
ages should get at least eight hours of sleep
every school night. It’s the best way to ensure
that the brain is refreshed and ready to process
all of the information learned during the day. It
may be tempting to stay up late to cram, but it’s
more beneficial to get enough rest. A full night’s
sleep is especially important the night before a
test-a good night’s sleep makes you more alert
and improves memory for test material, leading
to better test results.
3. STUDY AT THE RIGHT TIME: Every student
has his or her own daily highs and lows. Some
people are night owls while some people

prefer the morning. Take advantage of the time of the day you feel most
productive and don’t try to force yourself to study when your brainpower
isn’t at its peak. Try to study when you are most alert, so you are able to
process and retain the information that you are studying.
4. HAVE A DESIGNATED STUDY AREA: Whether it’s the kitchen table or
the desk in your bedroom, create an area to study that is a designated
study zone. Try to reserve your bed for sleeping and avoid studying in it
(it can be all too easy to take a nap!). Most importantly, keep your study
space clean and organized so you can put more time into studying (and
less trying to find a pen that works).
5. EAT PROPERLY: Don’t forget to eat! Your body (and your brain) needs
fuel to help stay in top form. Plus, it’s difficult to focus when your stomach
is growling. Have healthy snacks while you study, but make sure they’re
prepared in advance so you don’t spend too much time away from your
work. More time away means more opportunity to be distracted!
6. CREATE A TIMETABLE: Creating a timetable helps organize your time,
schedules your breaks and is especially useful when you have multiple
subjects to study. Write your schedule down so you can remember it
and refer to it often. Set reasonable limits for how much time you spend
studying each day and break your study session up into manageable
chunks of time.
7. USE A TIMER: Use a timer to help keep track of time and to make sure
you stick to the timetable you created. Setting a timer helps keeps you
focused on the task at hand, committed to working until the timer goes
off and helps keep you on track to cover all the material you need to.
Above all else, it helps keep your break time effective and guilt-free
(because you’ve earned it!).
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR STUDY TIME
Although it seems convenient, studying at home can be difficultprocrastination
and distraction can happen easily. But with a little bit of
planning and organization, it can be an effective (and comfortable) place
to study. Try some of these tips for studying at home to help you stay
focused and more efficient with your study time.
NATIONAL GRANDPARENTS DAY -
SUNDAY AFTER LABOR DAY
Each year on the Sunday following Labor Day, grandchildren across
the country honor their grandparents. There is a special bond that
can only be shared between grandchildren and their grandparents.
Grandparents are full of hugs and kisses, family history, wisdom, patience,
love and guidance. National Grandparents Day gives grandchildren the
opportunity to show love and appreciation to their grandparents.
National Grandparents Day has its very own song. The National
Grandparents Day Council of Chula Vista, California announced in 2004
that A Song for Grandma and Grandpa by Johnny Prill would be the official
song of the United States National Grandparents Day holiday. The Council
presented Prill with the National Songwriter’s Award in recognition of his
highly popular composition A Song for Grandma and Grandpa.
The forget-me-not is the official flower for National Grandparents Day.
National Grandparents Day is expected to grow in significance over the
next decade and beyond as the number of grandparents in the United
States rises from 65 million in 2011 to 80 million in 2020 as a result of the
baby boom. Show your appreciation for everything your grandparents
have done for you.
