Session Summaries And Reports, And Writing

Mon 5 January 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

The session summary or report for each session we play is a feature we have had from the outset, and a continuation of Dennis’s frequent e-mail reports.

Many of us look forward to reading the report or even commenting on it the day after the session.

I have been seeking volunteers to do the report after each session, especially if I’m not playing.   More than half of the reports in the second half of last year were not written by me.

Everyone who has been added as an author to date has been quite obliging when it comes to writing a session report.   However, there are two issues:

  • If it’s planned for the next day, the writer might get caught up with work, and the report might get put aside for a day or two.  I’ve noticed some of the authors actually make it a point to do the write-up the same night, before going to bed.
  • After having written a few, the novelty of writing the report wears off, and it’s more work than fun.

Increasingly, I find a short summary does the trick – the line ups, the result, and the player poll.  Once that it done, anyone who played can add their comments.

Therefore, unless any one of the players at a session who is also an author is very keen to do a report, and can put it up by noon the next day, I’ll just put up a short summary, and allow everyone who played to comment.

If I don’t play the session, the summary may not include the result or the score (as I most likely wouldn’t know), but anyone who plays can add the final result and score as a comment.  If there are different accounts of the final result and score, I’ll wait to see if there is a consensus before working it into the rankings.

To those of you who have been added as authors, don’t worry about session reports anymore.  Feel free to write about other aspects of our sessions or football generally, or about other activities, or health and fitness, as would interest you.

    Andy, when you have the time, you could do a post on this blog to describe your new blog.

    You could also do occasional updates on this blog summarizing the progress you’re making as detailed in your blog.

    And Reza, you could always do a post at some time to explain AGAPAPAPAPA. Nice picture.
