June Meeting

We had a very productive dinner meeting on Tuesday, June 1st at Cagney's Restaurant. Eleven of us shared wonderful food, conversation, and writing goals. Our round robin session generated much discussion.

Erin is planning to write about the adventures of her pet parrot, Darby. She was encouraged to check out the submission requirements for "birding" magazines. She is hoping to write a short story and share it with us before the next meeting.

Rebekah has already completed five chapters of her novel. She will be sharing the first chapter with us via email.

Sarah has been very busy with Chubbee Candles and her blog, Creating My Journey.

Bonnie is working on children's stories. She has received positive feedback regarding the article published last month.

Sheila is working on poems and short stories. She was encouraged to enter one of her poems in the Eden Mills Writers Festival Literary Contest.

Lucila will continue with her journaling.

Judy will be writing a book review. She was encouraged to send it to either the Book Shelf or the Waterloo Record.

Joanne is working on her novel. She will be sharing Chapter 3 with everyone, via email.

Patricia shared one of her short stories with us on Tuesday. She was encouraged to enter it in the Eden Mills Writers Festival Literary Contest. She also gave us an outline of her proposed novel, based in Algonquin Park. She will be starting to write it this summer.

Dennis gave us a summary of the first 10 pages of his novel. He was encouraged to share it with us via email.

My Linh will continue to post on her new blog, Healing My Broking Wings.

Additional Notes...
  • We have decided to meet at Symposium Restaurant at 304 Stone Road West in the Dairy Queen Plaza. This will accommodate those members who are dependent upon public transportation.
