Minutes of Scribblers meeting held on 17 July 2018
Present: Dave, Steve, Liliane, Cathy, Di C, Tony, Liz, Derek, Anne, Beryl, Kay, Hazel, Peter
We welcomed new member Peter to the group.
Crystal Ball stories – Dave told us that he will shortly be sending Mairead’s family all the stories that the group have passed to him. Let’s hope that they will all be able to enjoy this lasting reminder of the group that was so very dear to their sister’s heart.
Chris Shaw (ex-Scribbler) had updated Dave on the book he is currently writing – Dave read out the details to the group.
Cathy reported that Endeavour Press, publishers of work by both Ruth Dugdall and Jeanette Hewitt, went into liquidation earlier this year. Sad news.
Readings of homework
The crime theme was fully embraced – what a collection of tales we were able to enjoy! Well done to everyone who tackled it with such excellent results.
Kay – Precognition
Liz – Revenge
Beryl – Asking for it
Peter – an excerpt from his ongoing work ‘The Bicycle Deacon’
Steve – The lie
Derek – Francine
Hazel – The revenge of witch Hazel
Tony – Poor Hardluck …..
Dave – Criminal intentions
Di – Untitled
Liliane – Murder on a stormy night
Anne – A crime on the train to Barcelona
7 August (THREE weeks’ time). Inspiration for homework (1000 words max) is the phrase ‘I wish I had said …..’ As usual, if the theme doesn't appeal, then members are free to write on any theme they choose, and if anyone wants to read excerpts from a longer, ongoing piece of work, then that is absolutely okay too.
