Face to Face meetings again

Tuesday 30th June

Our options will, for many months have been dictated by the number of Covid cases in our state or locality, and will continue to be so for many months to come. Here, many restrictions are relaxed, but it behoves us to remain careful.

My book club has been able to meet in person. Stimulating discussion about real books is food for the writer’s soul. At every point we are reminded of what readers like, what they find irritating. We are also reminded that, not only some books, but also some aspects of books can be loved by some readers and hated by others.

My own writing continues as I receive feedback on Seth from beta readers. Plot holes, however tiny, are plugged. Ambiguities, not guessed at, are being straightened out. The whole is being viewed again with different eyes.

My main writing group, Wyong Writers, usually hires a hall from the council. As of July they will be hiring out again, but we must do Covid-specific record keeping, hand sanitisation, cleaning and social distancing. For our June meeting we used Zoom again this time with three visitors. We introduced ourselves to talk about our general writing and current writing projects. We also made time for a quick three-way talk on Point of View.
