It’s all in the blog title, really: the TWW’s will be meeting again tonight at the Black Pig from 8:00pm onwards. We’ve an extra meet Next Week, too, for Halloween, so no doubt much of tonight’s talk will centre on that. We are positively quivering with… … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … anticipation.
Once our Halloween celebrations are out of the way we’ll be looking forward to getting stuck into our Christmas project. We’ll probably be talking about the remit for that, and the dreaded deadlines involved. We tend to be a bit like Douglas Adams as far as deadlines go – we love the whooshing sound they make as they go flying past.
IN OTHER NEWS:
A good number of TWW’s are signing up for NaNoWriMo this year. For those who have never heard of NaNoWriMo, this is an annual event where would-be novelists sign up with the intention of producing a 50k + word count novel during the month of November. The emphasis is on producing a full first draft rather than part of a polished final one, which is certainly a discipline worth developing. Further details can be found HERE. Anyone who fancies pitching in will, I’m sure, find support, encouragement and advice available from those who have already signed up.
There are two poetry events worthy of note coming up in the next few weeks. The first is performance poetry by Malcolm Head for Breakfast at Trinity at the Trinity theatre on Saturday 26th. That’s this Saturday, so why not drop in for a cuppa and a rhyming couplet or two? Looking forward to November, there’s the next Word Up at the Forum on the 13th. It’s not a Friday, so Triskaidekaphobics need not worry themselves unduly about a ‘double-whammy’.
So that’s this week’s meet and a heads up / reminder about next week. If you’re a writer, whether for profit or pleasure, and you live in or around Tunbridge Wells you would be made very welcome.
