In Favor Of Writing Groups

I had my monthly writing group meeting last night at the local Barnes and Noble.  As always, I feel a huge confidence and writing energy boost the day after the meeting. I’ve said it before buy I’ll say it again, if at all possible you writers out there need to find a group to share your writing with.  Don’t be shy. It’s worth it.

The meeting went very well, even if our numbers have dwindled to only three members. How could it not go well, when spending two hours talking about writing with fellow writers.

I submitted my Chapter 2 for the group to critique, and I wasn’t really sure what their reaction would be. One of their first comments was how well they are beginning to know the characters and connect with them.  This is great to hear. I just wish I could feel some connection with my characters. I think this is my biggest stumbling block.

The only bad thing about meeting in Barnes and Noble is that I drank a Starbucks coffee at 6:00 in the evening. I didn’t fall asleep until 1:00 this morning! Oh well, at least that gave me time to get the Wii connected to the router, which I was finally able to do!
