INDIAN LAKE WRITERS’ GROUP
Newsletter D. Bradley, May, 2016
A beautiful spring day, despite the black flies, brought out our core group members today. Never fear, we had a wonderful and actually beneficial time together. We enjoyed a piece written about the performance of The Goldberg Variations in Boston’s Stewart Gardiner Museum. In contrast, we heard “And the Band Played On”, a piece depicting lifetime reactions to marriage and relationships in general. An interesting take on a passion to explore abandoned and hidden places transported us to a grandparents’ attic, an abandoned subway station, and finally, the abandoned and unused places in the basement of a NYC bank’s branch. We are in the throes of hearing the beginning of a novel, written with great detail describing a fictional New Jersey shore town. The enticing title, “Death on the Beach” guarantees us some future entertainment.
NEXT ASSIGNMENT: At the meeting we offered the assignment, Caught. However, it seems to be so similar to our previous assignment of Trapped, that I decided to offer it, if it may inspire, and also add, Rituals, as another idea.
NEXT MEETING: June 8, same time, same place. Hopefully we will see even more members, and maybe a new member or two. It makes for an entertaining afternoon.
