New writing group, Genealogy, Video and Painting

How exciting! Julie Shaw and I are going to start up a new writing group in Ashwell! It will be about learning to write for youth, women and older people. We will be analysing how writers create there own style and how to put together your own novel or feature.

I'm also now thoroughly addicted to genealogy. In fact Colin and I are going to make a documentary about my mother's family tree. I'm going to start by going to the cemetery in Duffield, Derby where they are all buried and check out all the maiden names I can find. Then I'm going to go to Allestree and do the same for the Evans family. We may go this weekend to make a start on what could be a long exploration.

The Childrens Art Club is going well I now have two good groups one with mixed ages. I really do fancy starting another adult club, anyone interested? I'm going to do more of the watercolour paintings I started at the beginning of the summer. I can feel another exhibition coming on.

The Clairefest 2011 and The Kill Bill video is now edited and written. We now have to decide how much if anything people are willing to pay to buy them and how much we have to pay to produce them. Will there be any profit for Cancer Research I wonder. http://wendyerose.weebly.com/blog.html

I wish there was a writing group where I lived. Maybe I should start one--you've got me inspired!!
Good luck with all your ongoing projects!
