Members Present: Alan, Jackie, Karen, Pam, Patty
Patty read Chapter 5 and 6 of The Iron Ladies. Karen and Patty discussed how the main character should change in the second part of the story. Vienne should stop reacting and instead be taking more control by being the acting force. They went over some basics for character development and how the plot should progress.
Alan shared the first chapter in his new young adult novel which is about a troll and is written in first person. Alan usually writes poetry so this is a big change for him. Members discussed dialogue and tags as well as some popular children’s books.
Pam had a lot of questions about self-publishing so members discussed Kindle Direct Publishing.
Jackie printed out and started to organize the poems she has written over the past 10 years. She would like members to look at their bios and send any updates to her.
Next Meeting: September 11th, Rosati’s in Schererville, at 6:30.
