We are now at capacity membership. Anyone interested in joining our group will go on a waiting list.

HOMEWORK

WRITING ASSIGNMENT

To the best of your ability, complete the sheet for Act II, part 1. You probably won’t be able to complete all of it as some questions might not be answered until later in the writing of the story, but do your best.

Bring in 500 words of the story to share with the rest. It must be part of Act II, part 1, but it can be any part you want.

Hope to see all members there.

Meeting Recap

The regular writing craft meeting took place Tuesday January 15th at 6:00 pm. Eleven members were in attendance: Barb M., Barbara C., Alice, John, Donna, Lynn, Mindy, Jayne, Teigan, Elizabeth and Diane.

We had a short discussion on Amazon, particularly KDP Print and the problems many authors are finding with ordering books and seeing them on the website.

Diane won’t call any impromptu meetings at Tim Horton’s until mid-March, depending on weather.

There was a discussion of story format and the flow concerning Act I and Act II and the phases of a story.

A quick presentation was given on the elements of Act II part A.

HOMEWORK

Continue writing the story started in September. If possible, write a good section of Act II, part A. Choose approximately 500 words to read to the group in February.

The story written over the winter can be any size, from a 2,000-word short story to an 100,000-word novel. It’s up to the writer.

Hopefully, you have a minimum of 500 words written for this story, but maybe you have more. That’s great. Bring in 500 words of the story to share with the rest. It must be part of Act I, but it can be any part you want. Just choose 500 words.

Hope to see all members there.
