We had six show up for Meg this week, Tracey, Sonia, Julee, Janeen, Terry and me. Apologies from Kristen.
First up, we had a very interesting discussion about the ramification for writers of the closure of Dennis Jones and Associates, the book distributor. A sad and disturbing thing, which affects a great many Australian writers. Then we moved onto Meg’s writing exercise, and no, it wasn’t writing using the wrong hand while meditating by standing on our heads. It was, however, very different. In fact, it was quite interesting and thought-provoking.
Meg is off to London next Wednesday, so I’d just like to wish her a happy and successful trip. London is a great city, with so much to do and see.
Now – Warning – Warning – Warning. School holidays are approaching, and still no sign of any ‘kid raid’ shelters being provided by the council. So, we need to make a decision.
Kristen, Sonia and Terry are unavailable both weeks. Janeen will be out for the second week, as will Julee and I. Therefore, I think we should still have a normal session on the 26th September as, Tracey, Janeen, Julee and I should be in attendance. I think that we should cancel the second week (3rd October) as only Tracey is available. However, with her ‘Big Day’ looming that Saturday, I’m sure she won’t mind cancelling that particular Wednesday as well. If I’ve mucked up, please feel free to let me know.
A normal critiquing week next Wednesday, if anyone has anything, you know the drill. If not, I’ll throw myself down for sacrifice again.
I hope to see most of you next Wednesday.
Until then, ‘Falbh ann an sith.’
