We discussed the meeting structure today and decided on monthly meetings. There's a prompt for March 9th's meeting. It is:
-A half-full cup of cappuccino
Feel free to write a poem, short story, or however you enjoy arranging words on a page about this prompt. It can be interpreted in absolutely any way you wish. I'll post the photo of said cup for anyone who missed today's meeting as soon as I figure out how to do it (perhaps under the Discussions tab).
The idea is that we will each write a story/poem/word collection related to the prompt and e-mail to each other (or upload to Discussions if possible) a week before our next meeting (Saturday, March 2nd). This will give everyone a chance to look through each work and be prepared to give a helpful critique to everyone during the meeting (Saturday, March 9th).
If you have a particular, non-prompt-related, piece you'd like to have critiqued, feel free to upload it and ask for feedback. Then, after the regular meeting, the ones who wish to discuss the piece can talk about it.
The location is the same: Mead's Corner
The time is different: 1:00 PM (quieter)
Duration: ~ 2 hours
If you can't make it to this meetup, perhaps we can schedule an additional one. However, for the sake of everyone's schedule, I'd like to keep this date solid so there's no confusion.
I hope the plan is pretty clear for everyone. We had a great first meeting; we had five turnout today. I look forward to seeing everyone again, and hopefully some new faces as well.
