We have just discovered that writers, at least at MW, are migratory in summer. Necessary arrangements have been made and now we will have a precious monthly confluence instead of our usual couple of Wednesdays fizgigs.
Last Wednesday finger counted four writers.
1. Blair 2. Mu 3. Samantha 4. Swar
Discussion on writing styles led to a digression on writing processes and the four had a vague agreement that each process reveals the life behind and around the writer. And this reminds us of the recently concluded PEN World Voices Festival. This year's theme was Public Lives/Private Lives.
"How do we draw a line between our private and public selves? When must we tell private stories for the public good? Do we need to redefine the meaning of public and private in the 21st century?"
