Novel/Short Stories Group - Meeting Report 23 January 2010

Present: Findlay, Helga, Leanne, Lorraine, Pam, Carol
Apologies: Anna

Our first meeting for the newly formed Novel/Short Stories group was very successful with good writing presented for critique and helpful feedback given.

A warm welcome was extended to new member Pam. We hope that Pam will find our meetings enjoyable and useful to her in the future.

It has been decided that we will split up into smaller groups for critiquing at future Novel/Short Stories meetings due to the longer length of pieces presented.

Members wishing for feedback of extra long pieces, such as a whole chapter, to buddy up with other novel writers in the group and forward their work electronically to their buddies for preliminary reading/commenting before the next meeting. A brief outline of the 'story so far' to be included with the chapter.

Meeting Dates for February:
Exercise Group – 13th
Novel/Short Stories Group 27th

Until the next meeting happy writing to all of you.
