Writing Group begins

The first meeting of the new writing group will be this Friday morning. I met up with Emily, who is running it with me, and we went through a framework, which we will hold very lightly.
The librarian told me there has been a lot of interest and if everyone turns up, there simply will not be enough room..what a delicious 'problem'. I have so many ideas for 'prompts' ..enough for a writing group every day. Even more ideas flooded in during this mornings 'Morning Pages.'
November is National Novel Writing Month, auspicious timing, and I also noticed a pink piece of paper on the notice board telling us about a Poem for Perranporth competition, so I might use that to get the juices flowing next month.

Write in the moment

life has been pretty hectic for a few weeks. I have left the big city and am now living in a very small seaside village. There is a city 9 miles away and I bumped into someone who lives locally when I was in the library there. It seemed we were both interested in finding a creative writing group. The nearest one is miles away, and not handy if you do not have a car. I asked at the local library about the possibilities of me starting up a creative writing group. The librarian was very helpful..it starts next month.
