The full question posed was, "Why are you a writer?" The group were asked to individually provide a written answer that we could all discuss. Strangely enough most of the answers centred around our love of words and their use to tell a story or paint a picture. Discussion took place on how each of us welcomed feedback as that was one of the ways to improve our work and develop ideas. I found the discussion quite invigorating and was pleased to see that the majority in attendance participated putting forward opinion and counter opinion. May such feedback continue over the coming weeks and months.
I am looking forward to next week's contributions of a "book review" as this will give an indication of what everyone's reading material is as well as possibly introduce new authors to the group.
