The regular writing craft meeting took place last night at 6:00 pm. Thirteenmembers were in attendance: Lynn, Kat, Dawn, Catherine, Barb M., Art, Elizabeth, Alice, Barbara C., Donna, John, Gary and Diane.
From this gathering, it has been decided that 13 is our lucky number. We have no further room for new members.
We had a short discussion about CreateSpace closing their eStore on October 31, 2017.
We critiqued Barb M.’s children’s story using the new critiquing format and had a great discussion about its meaning.
The following will submit stories to be critiqued for the next two months:
- November: Dawn
- January: Barbara C.
Members read stories written by other members as homework.
