President’s News – March 2012
Another month gone and the year is racing away. I wonder how your writing goals for the year are going.
I just read a lovely tweet from a guy who is a very prolific writer who said ‘Just wrote the first sentence of a new novel. I’m at a bit of a loss as to where to go from here.’ So writers block and lack of confidence in writing happens even to the best of us! Take heart.
I would like, this month, to thank Jeannie for her contribution as Vice President. She has chosen not to continue in that role due to other commitments but will continue as our webmaster. I will be welcoming our new Vice President at the next meeting. I’ve put one candidate’s name to the committee, but am calling for anyone who believes they could undertake the role to let me know if they are interested. I also called at the last meeting for anyone who may be interested in a committee role in future to offer to co-facilitate a meeting. Please encourage our younger members to take an interest in a more active role.
As there has been great interest shown in effective use of the internet we will be initiating a series of short workshops at meetings to specifically answer your questions. Remember, this is your association and the committee is there to help you. If you have a question you’d like answered, something you need to know how to do more effectively or an issue you’d like to raise, please let me know through my email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve included below some weblinks that may be of interest to you.

Church Hall due to the Queensland elections.
