A small group of us have been 'scribbling' for two years now, and though our numbers have dwindled somewhat we'd like to keep going as it is very enjoyable and interesting, both to read and to write.

There are no hard and fast rules, work can be factual, fiction, poetry,prose. Any and all styles of writing are welcomed and criticism (if asked for) is always constructive and is very very gently given.

We send work by email which makes it easy to send to everyone at once, but I think we're happy to accommodate anyone who'd rather PM it through here.

Anyone interested please contact me or add here and I'll get in touch. :-D

Well done, Rose!! Have you mentioned that it is an absolute certainty that by joining this Group you will instantly be fitter, slimmer, richer...er.....and a born fantasiser! :-D

It would be really lovely to see some newcomers..we are very easy peasy in this small Group and...very kind :-D ;-) <3

Yes, and we could do with some new blood to lift us out of the rut!!! I know I have got very lazy about writing since about November, mainly down to making Christmas cards and only having 2 hands and half a brain.

I have just picked up a book in the local Works shop called Writing Fiction so I am hoping that it will work miracles for me. :-D :-D

I missed that bit out BC :-D ...but there's no reason why one of the group should not turn out to be the next JK, or Maeve Binchy, or Catherine Cookson...and rich! ... and it's easier to be slim if you can afford a personal trainer ;-)

Excellent Dermot ! :-D

Ann , if there is some good advice in there please forward snippets, and any suggestions for topics would be welcome I'm sure even if I never stick to them lol.

ZZzzz it would be lovely if you share some of your writing, we have all done bits of writing on our family history I think, it often gives a bit of encouragement or a new idea of how to set it down.

Welcome Jan.

Rose are you going to put the basics on here? i.e. are we reverting to sending something/anything out at weekends or are we going 'free flow' which is what we have been doing lately.

I assume you will pm new people with the e mail addresses of those members who are still active if theyw ant to do it that way. We really need to know who is sending/receiving by e mail and who by PM don't we?

Blooming lovely our Rose :-D come one,come all.....and as BC says we are very easypeasy err speak for yourself dwarling ;-) but we are gentle and,seriously it would be smashing if we were able to have new members for the new year :-D :-D

Rambling Rose Report 2 Jan 2012 17:07

If it's ok with all I shall ask new members to send me an email address they are happy to use to send and receive,( or whether they would prefer to use PMs for now) and then send out a letter to all current members to check that they are happy to share their email details also?

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 2 Jan 2012 17:09

lol sorry Ann, I was typing away there while you posted :)

Perhaps a short list of topics to set us off for the new year, so that we are all doing the first pieces 'together' so to speak?

AnninGlos

AnninGlos Report 2 Jan 2012 17:20

OK. Rose for the first topic. Give me two numbers from one to six please. I have a 'fiction square in front of me. These numbers will give the two characters in a story.
