The novel - almost finished - (the meetings that is!)

Our last Cabbage Soup meeting on 'the novel' is set for this Monday. It seems that we're all in the fairly early stages of writing these, even if some have more definite plans than others, we've all got a lot of writing to do before we've finished! Talking to one of the group the other day we thought that it might be good to have regular checks on progress in future, so at least we know that someone else knows and cares about that file full of notes, plans and half-formed novel we've got lurking around somewhere. It might be a motivator to actually write a bit more of it now and again if someone might ask after it. It might. I'm not promising...

After that we get back to writing exercises. I've missed doing them while we've been concentrating on each other's book plans, but it's also been a relief to have a break from deadlines. It might be fun to have to produce something again. Unfortunately it's a childrens story we're supposed to be writing, which I have no clue how to do!

Word cloud

You've read the blog? Then get the t-shirt! I think it might suit me to go about clothed in my own word cloud...

It's funny how you come across other blog entries by accident sometimes, or by an unlikely series of links, that are just what you would have been looking for, if you'd known it existed. If you see what I mean. Today it was this one.

Cabbage Soup off the menu yet again

We've had to delay the Cabbage Soup meeting yet again - that's about three times now. This time due to a ridiculously busy day (see my work blog if you're at all curious about the details.) It's now scheduled for Monday lunchtime. It's amazing how difficult it can be for a handful of people to find one free hour a fortnight to meet. I don't know how people manage to find convenient times for larger groups.
