We had a short discussion about publishers and which ones to avoid.
We critiqued Diane’s short story using the new critiquing format and had a discussion about fantasy stories.
Members read stories written by other members as homework.
Homework for April Meeting
The task is to create a mood with 400-word. Write a short scene with or without characters that will invoke a particular mood, so the reader will without a doubt feel that mood. The mood can be anything: angry, happy, scared, worried, anxious, etc.
Genre: open, fiction or non-fiction; word count: 400.
REMEMBER: Other members of the group will be reading these stories at the April meeting. Please print the stories in an easy-to-read font type and size. Size 12 is okay, but 14 is better. DO NOT put your name on your story. PLEASE NOTE: the word count is only 400, not our usual 500. Please stick to the word limit.
