Writing Every Week
We met on Tuesday the 24th with stories in hand. We were: Karen, Clark, Nick, Elaine and Ruth. The others had previous commitments and our group is fine with that. Our goal for this meeting was to discuss the stories that we had written and sent to each other. The points of discussion were:

Our next assignment is to make a list of qualities in a person which are the direct opposite of who you are and write something that happens to that person. Somewhere in the story is the phrase—and then she came in—.
And now to the stories. they will be published each week.
