Showcase Launch

Well I think we are all pretty pleased with the first edition of our new magazine. Now we just have to see how many copies we can sell, and of course start producing work for the next edition, due out in December.

I have uploaded a picture of the cover into our publications section, so visitors will be able to see what it looks like. I will also have to upload pictures of all the previous books.

I have been told that the course I am doing for work next week should actually finish very early on the Friday, depending on how long the exam takes me. So (fingers crossed) I should be able to be at the meeting. I hope to see you all there.


I'm Back!

Hi all!

Well I've finally managed to get myself organised enough to get back to the website. I hope we'll have plenty of people at the meeting this week so we can really get cracking on the magazine.

I thought it might be good to have reviews in the magazine as well, so if anyone has read, seen or experienced anything and would like to write a review of it, please do so and get it to me as soon as possible.

I'd love to hear from people about their current writing projects and how they're going, please feel free to add a comment to this blog so we can support and encourage each other. I am currently working on my novel, I finished Chapter 2 last night and have begun Chapter 3 today.

Looking forward to seeing you all Friday. I believe the topic for this week is 'Playground Fighting', which should be interesting.

Website taking shape

I have updated the calendar with a couple of birthdays and also the days that Anna's play is on. It looks like Friday the 23rd is the best day for us to go as a group. We will make plans for this at the meeting on this Friday.

Those who were able to make it to the coffee shop on Friday had a lovely chat, it was great to see Sioban and her beautiful baby.

Please remember to bring all your best ideas to the meeting this Friday. We will be focussing on the magazine to be produced later this year. We need a title, theme, ideas for topics and illustrations and the cover.

I hope everyone is going well with their writing. Remember the topic for this meeting is 'Fire and Brimstone.' As usual, this is optional. You can of course write on a topic of your own choosing.

See you all Friday!

Good evening everyone.

I have added a minutes archive which can only be accessed by members, and I am updating the list of publications.

If anyone would like to be a moderator on the website and help with editing and developing it, please let me know. You don't need to be highly technologial, and it shouldn't take up a lot of your time.

I will be posting links to useful writing websites in the Unblocking page. If you have a website that you like to go to for writing resources, let me know and we can post a link to it.

This will be all I will have time for tonight, cheers and keep writing!
