Julee, Sonia, Tracey, Janeen, Terry and I attended yesterday, with apologies from Kristen, who even though she was unwell, took the time to complete two very good critiques. Thanks, Kristen, it was much appreciated. No word from the long-range sniper, Kevin. He might be back in NZ for a spell.
We had two critiques. Terry’s re-write of his last chapter, and my chapter Twenty-Three. We had lots of laughs working through both with much helpful advice and suggestions given.
I don’t know about Terry, but I’m going to start on my re-write today. As always, thanks everyone, your comments are consistently on the mark and a great help in making my chapters come alive.
We had a brief discussion as to things we would like Meg to cover in her workshops, which I will email to her later today.
Sonia is on-board with the 11.30 start, as is Meg, so I’ll contact Ros later today, to see if that is okay with the library.
No session next week as it is Anzac Day and everyone will be too tired after the dawn service.
Excitement for Janeen. She has her book launch in Tasmania on the 28th. The house where she will be doing the launch was built by one of her ancestors, so it will be all the more special for her. On behalf of the Wordsmiths, I wish her much success and hope she has a fabulous day.
Our next session is the 2nd of May. It’s a Fun Day, so no critiques for that week. I have a couple of things in mind, so bring your pens, paper and laptops.
Until then, ‘Friður sé með þér.‘
