I have been around even less than usual recently, having spent a fantastic week on our 5th visit to Corsica. I had no access to the internet during that time, which I must admit made a refreshing change. Although I didn’t do any writing, I felt energised and picked up a number of ideas which I have carefully filed away for later use. Another absence is coming up, as we go to the UK shortly for my nephew’s wedding.
The first issue of the Writers Abroad Magazine seems to have attracted a lot of readers so far but only a few have completed the feedback questionnaire. This is probably not unusual, but we could encourage comments from people we know by other means as well.
Here's the link again for readers who'd like to take a look:
Val has supplied our Monday Muses this week, inspired by her recent experiences in Oman. Her prompts are about change, cultural misunderstandings and losing something important – things that are familiar to us ex-pats. I hope you retrieved your passport and found out where you are supposed to live, Val!
Rilla is down to write this week’s blog, which I’m sure she’ll post up soon.
The September challenge is still open, with a variety of competitions to choose from. Or dust off that poem, short story or other piece of work that you’d like some feedback on. Rilla has posted a piece on which she’d be grateful for further comments.
The Bragging Stool has been a bit quiet of late as we pick up our autumn activities again after the summer break, but no doubt that will soon change.
The next Formal Chat is on Sunday 28th September at 11h00 CET on Skype with Chris N in the chair. Agenda to follow this week - items to Jo, please. I have to give apologies this time.
Let me know if I’ve missed anything.
