The meeting commenced at 10.00 am and was chaired by JG
JG opened the meeting with discussion reference Member Bob Barker’s books. This then moved on to the demise of Creatspace and dominance of Kindle. Authors and genres were discussed including JK Rowling’s non children’s fiction, some of which is written to go straight to screen and is therefore available only as screenplay. We then discussed characters and the fact that the major character in a piece of work should have a flaw.
