November 2015 – Quick meeting roundup

Thank you again to Cherie and Kim for hosting today’s meeting.

Grelfie …nothing usable this week. We missed you Zane and your grelfie stick!

What have the Scifantorites been up to recently…

Brad – another great micro fiction this month. We also hope that David’s review of your book inspires you to start work on book 2.

Brett – has been working on a detective book called ‘Tumble’ for NaNoWriMo. It is very dark.

Cherie – has selected another subject, Jon Snow and Ghost for her entry into the fan art competition at Brisbane Supanova. Good Luck!

David – threw out 3 pages and add 3 new pages to his latest script. David also reviewed Brad’s book M.A.D.2

Janis – how is it going? Missed you!

Kim – is back from cons in Melbourne and Auckland. In Auckland Kim sold out of Book 3, Reign of Fury. Also like the cover art done for Book 3 by Wayne Nichols. Well done Kim!

Adriana – was very happy with this month’s micro fiction contribution.

Other discussions…

How much should you spoon feed your reader? Do you dumb it down to reach a wider audience e.g. US TV series and movies? Or do you take the high road and preserve your author integrity and miss out on a wider audience? Is there a middle ground where you can satisfy both?

What are your thoughts?
