March is an interesting month, often a great month to just “get away”; and several of our members did just that for a variety of reasons. Can you blame anyone for taking advantage of a break in this long winter?
Our remaining members were enthralled by what seemed to be the first hint of spring. Temperatures were in the forties, ice was turning to slush and the sun was shining. We sat around a small round table and with enthusiasm had a great meeting despite only a few of us who attended this month At the onset we decided that this meeting would be devoted to listening to each other and offering support and advice. It turned out to be a very positive experience with many helpful responses. As writers, we are always waiting for those moments in life when a memory bubbles up and requests to be acknowledged. Experiences such as these provide wonderful fodder for writing. This, along with a moonlit night walk, and a frustrating dream also inspired our writers’ this month.
Each of us felt we benefitted from thoughtful advice and/or suggestions. Now it will be interesting to see if a few of us might be brave enough to work on a rewrite.
***Danielle Shaw, Executive Director of the Theater wishes to know if any of you would be interested in reading one of your pieces of writing prior to a Thursday evening movie. A captive audience is guaranteed. We will discuss this further at our next meeting.
***Assignment: If interested in a new idea for a piece, the word of the month is TIMING.
Our next meeting will be April 8 at 1:30 in the library. Hope to see many of you there and certainly hope that the spring weather will be bursting forth with sunshine and warm breezes.
