Location: Neos Sports Club, Pegeia.
Greetings scribes, a relaxed easy-going meeting but well attended.
The annual Christmas lunch afterwards at Neos was most enjoyable with partners increasing the numbers to create a vibrant afternoon. A few free drinks on the group was most welcome.
Present: John Goodwin, Rich Palmer, Jennie Rook, Beryl Lowe, Caroline Harman-Smith, Maurice Holloway, Dee Leigh, Carol Robb.
Caroline Story Keep away from children (What I want Christmas)
Rich Poem The Last Gasp
John Article How to be Rich
Maurice Story Oh Carol (An alternative Christmas)
Carol Story Trumps Christmas
In the lead up to the break John posed the question: If we were writing “Trump the Pantomime” what traditional panto roles would you give to him and his entourage. Despite some humorous suggestions we decided not to pursue the matter.
Coffee break 11.0.am to 11.15.am
Jennie initiated a discussion on what was required for ghost writing.
More readings followed:
Dee Story The detectives
Caroline Poem What I want for Christmas
John Poem Diary of a fitness freak.
As the response to the Alternative Christmas was of such a high standard we will put some of them in a post on our long neglected “Pick of the Month” section on the website. Please look them up.
Homework: Write a story/poem on the theme of: “A New Year.”
Thanks to all who attended. The next meeting our last of 2017 will be on 14th, December at Neos. We resume meetings after the Christmas break on 4th, January 2018.
