What a terrific meeting with some excellent short stories all written expertly within thirty minutes of writing time. The stories could be chosen from the following subjects:
"It was no use pretending"
"Oh wind blow gently"
The well attended meeting heard much applause for so many of the completed stories which obviously brought a proud smile to the faces.
The meeting was preceded with an update on the phone conversation between Beryl and the HSBC business manager. It appears that the situation will be resolved quite soon. We'll just wait and see!
Also was an update on the Anthology which has now been sent to Gipping Press as has the cover design although we have since discovered an anomaly in the font used. We will discuss this with the printers very soon.
Liz has kindly said that she will represent the Scribblers at the Felixstowe Horizons event at the Orwell Hotel on Tuesday 11th June from 9am to 1pm.
Our next meeting takes place on Tuesday 4th June when Dave will ask for feedback on approximately 1,500-2,000 words of his ongoing novel. This will be followed (or preceded) by a 500 word homework assignment on Photo Album.
Until next time,
