The meeting commenced at 10am and was chaired by JG, who welcomed everyone. He and Caroline announced that the “Canterbury Tales stage play had started well and invited members to go and see it.

John then gave out the handout describing “how to create an ending”.  Available in Tutorials.

During the morning, Jenny read out her research into the original endings to well-known and more obscure fairy tales, most of which were very gruesome.

Writing Prompt:

So, having looked at beginnings and endings now for the hard part. Write or bring in an extract from the middle of a story. Of course, if it is short enough you can include the whole thing. Please try to keep it to about 500 words as with rising numbers we will need to give everyone a chance.

 

Also as we do have the room until 12.30 we may over run so if you need to get away sharp let us know so that we can get to your offering in time.

 

 

The meeting concluded at 12.00.
