Guildford Writers' Evening

A good morning at work, doing more exercises on the team/personal development tool, and also had an excellent university writers' group lunchtime session. Everyone brought manuscripts, and there was a lot of discussion and suggestions etc, which was good. For the first time, I didn't have to fill in time with a writing game, so really felt happy about it. Came away with a definite buzz.

Shame about the afternoon though - rather dull. Am waiting around for meetings, with little to do until they turn up. Then of course it will be all systems go! Am still worried about the changes I need to make to "Thorn in the Flesh". It might be better once I've made some kind of an editing start but, until I do, the depression just gets bigger. No chance of doing anything along those lines till Thursday afternoon though. At least. How I hate hanging around and waiting.

This evening was the Guildford Writers' (http://www.guildfordwriters.net) evening. Lots of manuscripts and fun too. Came away with some ideas about my short story, "A Question of Trust", which I can work on later in the week. Am still a little worried about exactly how the text and cover tweakings of "Pink Champagne and Apple Juice" for Goldenford (http://www.goldenford.co.uk) will work out though. Seems to be lots of unsolvable (or at least not immediately solvable) issues to go through in terms of writing at the moment. Sometimes it's like wading through treacle.
