P.W.G Minutes of the Meeting on 26 November 2020
John Goodwin Jennie Rook Bob Barker Richard Powell Gina Angeletta June Megennis
As always, we hope that you and your closest are healthy and safe.
A delayed start to this week’s meeting due to technical hitches but we finally got going around 11:30 on Skype, welcoming June online.
John: Based on last week’s homework – Crazy Cracy – a reflection on current times.
June: Based on last week’s homework: Minimony – a sweet story of a couple trying to get married during the Covid-19 epidemic in Cyprus.
June: Cyprus Life – an extract from June’s book around the musical and cultural aspects of Cyprus with June’s experiences and tips on local cultural events.
A discussion was had after, around the best channels to publish June’s book within the musical non-fiction genre.
Gina: Based on last week’s homework: Detera - a story written from an insect’s POV. Gina is wanting to write in the anthropomorphism style for her book, with various creatures.
Bob: The next chapter of his ‘The Woman across the Street’ novel. We have now switched from the boy’s POV to Carver’s POV. We are getting more of an insight into each character, lots of detail and a hint of what’s ahead; a nice build-up of tension.
