We met at the Brea Library on a sunny afternoon. Kaleo had work today, so Ned led the meeting in his stead. Becky brought Christmas cards and cookies. As per usual, the meeting ran a bit late.
None. Instead we tried a new segment called “Writing Tidbits,” where we went around and gave lessons we learned from our experience. You can read more about it below.
A Chapter from Rita’s “The Lost Angel”
“Hats,” a segment from Helen’s historical romance
Chapter 2 of Christy’s zombie novel
Ned brought in a photograph of an abandoned truck. See below for more.
