Writing for Fun

May 2012

On Thursday 24thMay 2012, 7 members gathered at my flat.
Our topic this month was 'Royalty' and there was the usual variety of lovely pieces, and once again, every one different.
Sometimes our members have difficulty with the chosen topic and it is fascinating to witness the skullduggery which is used to circumvent the title, nudging it into something more acceptable.
Of course, this is more than acceptable 'fair game' for this group and often the ingenuity of avoiding a topic can be more entertaining than one which sticks rigidly to the rules!
