(Originally posted 10th July, 2009)
I am pleased to announce that we have a new member of East Surrey Creative Writing Workshop; Brian, who's a salesman from Epsom. Brian contacted me last week and came along to see how he found the meeting.
Present: Tannice, Brian, Alex.
Susi and Liz were unable to attend, but we discussed their practice work.
Meeting 2's Task
Alex and I kicked off by going through Liz and Susi's practice material. The task this week was to write a synopis with 2/3 characters, a setting and an ending. Members had a theme choice of a) Romance, (b) Thriller or (c) Sci-fi. (500 words).
We set this task as both Alex and I were finding it difficult to end our great stories.
Meeting 3's Task
The practice task for our next meeting (22nd July) is a poem.
The poem must be around 100 words (+/- 10%). The theme is your choice, but there must be at least one rhyming couplet.
Recommended metre: iambic pentameter (optional).
