Cleckheaton Writer's Group meeting 28 May 2013 and Judy Woods

There were only three members at Cleckheaton Writer's Group (CWG) last night due to the date being moved to Tuesday on account of the Bank Holiday, but D, P and I still managed to get quite a bit done.  We discussed the Mandasue Heller author talk and some writing competitions we had seen in recent writing magazines.  We discussed what stage we were at with our pieces at the moment and D revealed that she is about 80% done with her third edit of TSC and I am about a third into my second edit of Thorde.  This lead us on to discuss agents and publishers.

I then shared a short story with a 'crime' theme for feedback and suggestions for a better title as I am unhappy with the current one.  Both D and P enjoyed the story and said it dragged them straight into the action and it was very evocative.

We then discussed P setting a writing task for the next CWG meeting and it was agreed that she would email all members with the details.

After the meeting, one of the other CWG members emailed me to suggest a title that I am now mulling over.

On Bank Holiday Monday my husband, son and I took advantage of the nice weather and went for a lovely walk in Judy Woods, a local beauty spot that we have never visited before.  We couldn't believe something so pretty was right on our doorstep and we had not taken advantage of it before.  We will definitely be going for more relaxing walks in the woods again.  I thought I would share some of the snaps I took whilst we meandered with my followers:
