Will we, won't we?

Tuesday 13th July

Yes, our small critiquing group has met face to face but we have not yet had a monthly meeting with all the members. This is altogether a bigger challenge. The council, from whom we hire the hall, has finally sanctioned this. But the timing. Oh dear, just as Victoria is showing us that maybe it isn't as safe out there as we thought. However we are ready to go in 12 days time. Should the Covid situation worsen significantly we will run back into our shells and meet via Zoom again.

With my own work, feedback from more beta readers arrives. Revisions continue.They are so much less exciting to write than the original mad rush of making the story, of weaving characters out of air, creating their world filling it with their desires. On the other hand there is something satisfying about re-writing a piece that doesn't quite work. I feel like a metalworker hammering a misshapen vessel into a different shape.
