Thanks to everyone who attended last night’s meeting. We sometimes see a drop-off in numbers around this time of year so it was great to see you all. Dedication to the cause!

We should be back at MadLab for next month’s meeting but keep an eye on the Facebook group for details.

Update 26th November: we will be at Federation House again for the December and January meetings.

Before we get started with the critiques, I’ve started a new thread on the Facebook group to suggest the following change to House Rule #11:

“11. There’s a 4000-word limitation for each submitted piece. Anything longer than this should be split into smaller sections and submitted across subsequent meetings. If you have several short pieces of work, flash fiction for example, feel free to submit two or three of these together in the same Word document, with each piece no more than 1000 words.”

We had six submissions for last night’s meeting and with eleven people attending we did well to get through critiques for four pieces. It seems that one of the two remaining pieces has now been withdrawn from DropBox so that leaves just a single submission, a novel chapter from Eric, to carry over to next month’s meeting. On with the critiques!

After the meeting we popped over to Common where there was much discussion on computer games.

Next month’s meeting should really, probably, definitely, almost certainly be back at MadLab (unless we hear otherwise): Wednesday 10th December

Update 26th November: we will be at Federation House again for the December and January meetings.

See you there!
