Monday Muse

Jill will be providing the prompts to get our creative juices flowing.


Debbie will undoubtedly provide an interesting blog.


A prototype of the new planner system has been agreed by members. Each is allocated tasks on an alphabetical rota. If any member cannot fulfil his/her commitment then that person must find a replacement. The onus is not on Lesley. Thanks to Lesley for the hard work.

This Week on WA
Category: Site News

A summary of what is happening around the site... 

Blog: Vanessa has penned an informative post about using emotion more in our writing. Something many of us struggle with I should imagine! 

Monday Muses: Maggie has challenged us to write about childhood and fantasy providing some great photo's and a prompt. The world is such a magical place when your a child, it's rich picking for a story, if only I could remember that far back!

Feedback - both Angela and Alyson have posted pieces for the March Challenge and Jill, Lesley and Sue have pieces in the Works in Progress forum. If you have a minute please take a look.

The Bragging Stool is unusually vacant this past week, where are those Ad Hoccers or have I missed something. 

In the Notice Board you'll find a link for your secondary contact details if you haven't already provided it. And Angela is looking for advice about a creative writing CV.

And finally, in the Meeting Room you'll find the agenda for the meeting this coming Sunday at 4pm. And remember the clocks go forward for British Summertime!
