CWC TVW Bios Exercise

Last month I joined California Writers Club, Tri-Valley Branch’s Social Media group. The first assignment I had was to write bios in various lengths:

2-line bio (140 characters)
Short bio (50 words)
Medium Bio (100 words)
Long bio (400 to 600 words)
A bio to give for a speaker introduction (250 to 300 words)
The latter included five fun facts about me that wouldn’t be common knowledge.

A few of my fun facts are:
I like to drive golf carts but I don’t play golf.
I want to own an art gallery, but I don’t want to sell the art.
My favorite dessert is homemade Biscotti with a cup of hot Jasmine Green Tea.
I had two art showings in a local cafe. One was with photographs I had taken and the other was with my black and white abstract paintings.

The bio exercise is fun but it takes a while. The critiques from other group members helped to polish all of the bios so they are ready when needed.
