In 2019, Creative Writing will have its own identity, and the memoir writing group the same brief but a new title 'As Time Goes By' - Memoir Writing. Creative Writing now has its own web page and Joy's reports have been copied over to provide a sense of continuity.
The theme for memoir writers on Monday 26 November was 'Endings' - the brief 'Our lives are made up of many phases that shape who we become. Reflect on a time when something important in your life ended, and how it affected you'. What an interesting collection of stories! Most were 'glass half full' in concept, perceiving endings as the opportunity for new beginnings. We also enjoyed some new stories from this year's list of topics still to be shared by members.
Our first topic for 2019 is 'Family Trait'... If you are thinking of joining 'As Time Goes By' in 2019 you might like to prepare something to share about a family trait - even in draft form.
