Dianne has posted this week’s Monday Muses, a great selection with something for everyone. An image will follow later today.

Jill has written a fascinating blog post about how her extensive travels have inspired her writing, both fiction and non-fiction, and that she derives more inspiration from far-away places than those on her doorstep. Some of the people she’s met while travelling may appear in stories (that sounds familiar!).

The Bragging stool is groaning under the combined weight of the members occupying it this week. I think we had better invest in a bragging sofa.

  • No less than 5 members have stories in the Ad Hoc line-up this week: Angela, Crilly, Chris N, Laura and Sue (how many is that in a row, Sue?);
  • Sue is on a roll with her story ‘Trip of a Lifetime’ shortlisted in Writing Mag;
  • Angela also continues her winning streak with a highly commended and a place in Stringybark’s anthology for ‘Caged Birds’;
  • Laura’s spooky story was awarded third place in Morgen Bailey’s 100-word comp; and
  • Lesley read out via Skype her story during the launch of Chris Fielden’s Nonsense Challenge Book.

Phew! Have I missed anyone? Huge congrats to all. That’s a fabulous result for WA.

The July Challenges and Opportunities are up, with something for everyone, but feel free to add competitions or writing opportunities. And there are some pieces for critiquing.

WA Magazine. Although it’s now a while since publication, the mag is still current, so please do let people know about it if you get the chance.

Members’ writing visions. A number of us have now posted up our visions of where we see ourselves in 5 years’ time and what part WA can play in getting us there. It’s not always easy to plan so far in advance, but none of it has to be engraved in stone and I found it a useful exercise. It will also give us more clarity in recruiting new members. So if you haven’t done it yet, have a think about where you want to be – and get some inspiration from the visions already posted.

That’s all this week. If I’ve missed anything or got anything wrong please let me know.

Happy writing week.
