     What's happening...

Cent Sale on 8th of December

Time to clear out Aunt Hilma’s whatnot, and give good quality items to us.  Or sponsor a prize.  Or something. And of course, the Sale itself is a way to get lots of goodies to gift on at Christmas.  If you’ve never been to a Cent Sale, time to come to one so you can cross it off your bucket list.  Don’t worry tho’- we’ll give you another reminder before the day.

(Sorry, I should have posted this some days ago — Miriam.)

writing group – afterwards

Our first meeting was fun. There were only three of us. I wonder if there will be more next month.

We sat together at a table, drank coffee or hot chocolate (the tea remained unopened) and discussed a wide range of things, including, of course, writing.

Pat suggested a quick writing exercise, which we tried. It amazed me that it is possible to create something so easily like that, even though I thought it would be difficult to just come up with something on the spur of the moment. I think what helped was the fact that there was no judgement and we didn’t expect anything deep or inspiring. It gagged my internal censor and out popped something I would never have normally thought of.

Thinking about that this morning while I was surfacing from sleep, it hit me how many things I’ll never write because I don’t simply sit down and do so. Time marches on. I’ll never have another now. The minutes are valuable. I should be creating as much as I can before it’s too late. I don’t want to die with all my stories still inside me. That would be a waste.

Come along to the next meeting. Yes, I know it will be during NaNoWriMo. Perhaps we can use that to help us all write more.

EDIT: We’re changing it to 9am on the first Wednesday of each month. Anybody with thoughts on the matter?

Writing group

9am on the first Tuesday each month
at Gheerulla Hall

(Tuesday, 3rd of October 2017)

FREE
(optional gold coin donation for the hall)

All interested in writing are welcome!

We’ll try to help each other, give tips on things we’ve learned, such as ways to overcome writer’s block and how to find story ideas. Should you write for yourself or for the reader? Should you fit your story to a genre? Should you use a computer or write freehand? If a computer, what programs are suitable?

If you want to attend, but the date and/or time doesn’t suit you, ring Miriam 5472 3151 and we’ll try to work out a better one.

Writers’ group

9am on the 1st Tuesday of each month at Gheerulla Hall

A group of people interested in writing will be meeting. The aim will be to help spur our writing and to discuss the craft.

Old hands and aspiring writers, those who indulge in NaNoWriMo and those who enter local competitions, people with decades of experience and others who are new to writing — all are welcome.

Bring along something you’ve written or just your ideas.

Entry is free. We ask, but don’t require, a gold coin donation to the Gheerulla Hall for letting us use the venue.

Inaugural gheerulla country fair

Yes ! It’s the event you’ve been waiting for! The one and only –

Inaugural gheerulla country fair!

Saturday June 10 8.00 am – 2.00 pm

 
Bush poetry! (Thanks Ian!) local produce, jams, etc (Thanks Bill)! craft (too many to name)!, plants, (likewise)! trash and treasure; collectibles; locally made jewellery; handmade furnishings! (Ummm…Lisa); hats (Ooooo Coral); WWKIP, Boomerang Bags, ART!

Yes, keep this morning free. Bring your kids! Dust off your granny! Bring your rich auntie!

A day to remember!

In another day or two there will be a call out to members to tidy up the site prior to the event; and prepare for it the day before. We may also need some helpers on the day e.g. with parking.

And its not too late to clean out that old cupboard / shed / attic / and have a stall yourself – easier that trying to have a garage sale at home. Or you can donate it to the hall to sell. AND, if you have bigger items (cars, boats, caravans, farm machinery……) we may be able to have a spot for you too!

Any questions…..

Miss Tweetiepie’s secretary apologises for the late notice, but she’s been in a bit of a dither, lately, and not all au fait with the net.

I suggest you give her a call to make sure she’s made enough scones. 54460182
