Our February meeting …

We had a lovely meeting yesterday and to make it special we had someone new join us! Peter Boey popped in to take a look at what we do and said he would like to return to join us! We are very happy to have a boy join our all girl team. It will be nice to have a little balance. Originally, we had two men in our line up when there were ten of us. Another couple came and went, so we are hoping we don’t scare Peter away! He is already a published author and what he shared with us yesterday was wonderful.

So, this year is shaping up to be interesting. Our creative activities have been fun and stimulating. Keep watching this space as we share some of our happy times and special pieces.

Have a beautiful week.

The Ten Penners meet today – yay!

IMG_1670The Ten Penners have our monthly meeting this morning and I’m looking forward to a dose of inspiration from my friends. Lots of creative ideas will be sparked as we talk about writing, do some creative writing exercises and plan the year ahead. We hope to submit to many writing competitions this year and the first will be the Gold Coast Writers Short Story Competition.

After attending last months Gold Coast Writers meeting, I’m glad to say I was inspired by the buzz in the room and the way the new President Ocean Reeve has embraced technology to showcase audiobooks. The Gold Coast Writers facebook page in full of videos and inspirational messages. Featured authors each month and competition links. The website links to an equally motivational blog. Well done!
