Welcome to the blogsite for the Spire writing group
We are a friendly bunch of individuals who enjoy writing stories, poems, essays and plays, in fact any form of written expression that involves the use of the English language.
We meet every Monday morning between 10am and 12pm at the Salvation Army Hall Church Street Louth (opposite the bus station), we would be pleased for you to join us. Generally the mornings develop along these lines:
Firstly we read out the work that we have written in the previous week, we then offer constructive opinions on the work. At this point the discussion may veer spontaneously into all manner of topics!
Secondly we have a short tea break at 11.00am and then continue on with readings and observations on the work and the meaning of life (not necessarily in that order).
Thirdly, if time allows, we might do a short writing exercise before we jointly agree the homework for the following week.
We should point out here that there are no penalties for being unable to write a thing in the previous week. We consider all excuses as valid, if fact we treasure those that are truly original.
Creativity is fraught with difficulties. Whilst writing this afternoon, the cat walked on the keyboard, adding a strange set of code words which didn't add to the quality of the writing, then my foot wobbled the desk, which wobbled an overfull mug of camomile tea, which spilt onto my recently printed work. This is now lying on the carpet in the sunshine drying out, but is wrinkly. It does look more interesting though.
