Get Writing!

The Waveney Author Group (WAG) had their first library event at Southwold Library yesterday (Mon 17th Aug 2015). A lovely small library, managed by Charlotte Clark. Although small it has nearly everything, in fact it would be hard to find what it doesn’t have.

Before starting this author event a holiday maker popped in with some courgettes that had grown into marrows (she had popped home to Norfolk to check on her garden) and asked Charlotte if she would like to sell them, along with the plants that the library was selling. The courgettes /marrows were huge!

Here are some photos, in no particular order:

Today we met in Beccles Library to discuss social networking, after all, if you’re writing a book you want people to know about it, right? We had intended looking at all aspects of social networking and started by booting up the laptops and looking at blogging using the WordPress site. We soon found that the WiFi connection was not strong enough for us all to be on line at the same time and unfortunately we achieved very little but we had fun. Many thanks to all at Beccles Library for letting us use their room.

At The Cut.

The place is heaving

It’s very busy at The Cut and we order our food as soon as we can (so we can eat and get started on our work).

My dinner

After we’ve been fed and watered we get our laptops out and get down to do some work. It’s really busy and noisy but we manage (just about) to discuss fonts and formatting the pages of our current work.

We played around with these measurements…

Novel-font BOOK ANTIQUA 10 or 12

Poetry-font BOOKMAN OLD STYLE 11.5 OR CALIBRI 12 for a less formal look. For ebook, COURIER NEW is a good one to use.

Size of page-

Margins- Top 2cm  Bottom 2cm Left 2cm Right 2cm

Paper-width12.7cm height 20.29cm

Layout-header 1cm footer 1cm

With laptops

Then it was time for some more food…

Half a cake

A super day with super writers!
