Greetings scribes, we welcome back our Chairman John Goodwin after he almost got lost for ever while on a canal boating holiday in France. Although shaken by the experience, he chaired an excellent lively meeting.
Present: John Goodwin, Rich Palmer, June Megeniss, Derek Whittle, Gillian Ainsworth, Bob Barker, Nikki Burroughs.
The meeting commenced with a discussion on Johns book, ‘TAKE A LOOK IN MY SHORTS’ and his experience of the conversion from eBook to paperback.
Rich announced that he will not be writing any more short stories for book publishing and intends to concentrate on song writing and hopefully complete his book ‘Be My Firkin Guest, based on experience of owning a bed and breakfast business which has now been sold. A discussion on song writing followed.

Rich Lyrics Just Keep on Rockin’
Bob Extract Death in Mind.
A discussion on use of little known, odd and unusual words followed.

John Story The Secret Life of Secrets.
Derek Story Secrets.

This week’s writing prompt: write a short story or poem on ‘A LIE’.
Thanks to all who attended, next meeting 26th September, at Neos.
