Rich Palmer             Stewart Waddell  John Goodwin

 

Greetings scribes, nice to be back from dreary UK. Suffered first cold in years and going by the low attendance this week, I was not the only one. Thanks to Stewart for taking the minutes during my absence.

 

A few minutes into the meeting we were surprised by a guest member Catrina, on holiday from Estonia, who appeared at the door then introduced a male friend,  Phillip from Wales and Canada. Phillip was interested in writing an autobiography. They stayed for a short while to listen to a few readings.

 

We welcome everyone who is interested in writing, to drop in to our meetings, just as these two did.

 

Readings:

 

John W:

  • Murder by default - a murder story

Nicos:

  • The Amateur Crime – a crime story

Jennie:

  • The Spell – a fantasy story

 

Coffee break:  11:00 - 11:15

 

 

Readings:

 

Caroline:

  • The Beast– a murder mystery

Stewart:

  • The Massive Egotist – a murder story

John G:

  • A Murder of crones – a murder story

Rich:

  • A Poor relationship – a story

  • My little sat nav - a poem

 

Homework:

 

InHERITANCE.

 

If you recall Mary Shelley had Victor Frankenstein build his monster out of spare parts harvested from the bodies of criminals and their previous owners affected how the creature behaved.

Imagine someone who inherits an organ or limb from a dead donor and starts to take on the traits of the earlier incarnation. Write a short story or poem on this premise. It could also be widened to include inheriting an item of clothing, or a wig or even a piece of property if you prefer something less gory.

 

As usual try to keep to 500-800 words if you can.

 

Good Luck.

 

Thanks to all who attended.

 

Next meeting: Thursday 16 March at 10.00 a.m. at Neo’s Sports Club, Peyia.
