The 500 words topic for our meeting on July 20th from 2 to 4 pm is 'Lost and Found' – “Write about a time you lost something you owned, treasured, or believed in - and the lengths you went to, to get it back. Maybe it was a precious family heirloom you misplaced, an adventurous toddler who wandered out of sight, or perhaps you lost your way in an unfamiliar place. Take us on the search to find your lost thing. How did the loss affect you and those around you? Were you reunited? Was it back to business as usual, or did your life change in ways you could never imagine?" Some ‘Lost and Found’ examples are already appearing on ABC Open. We are a small group and would welcome new members in Semester 2.
