ReInventing the Writer's Group

Posted on March 18, 2013 at 2:07 AM
Great news! Last week we got the old writing gang together for lunch. While enjoying a meal at Bandana's BBQ, each of us expressed an interest in getting together for a critique group. Unfortunately, none of our schedules mesh.

Rather than give up, we've decided to try it via email. Each of us will send five to ten pages of a current work to the others. As each of us find time, we will read the work and write up our critique, suggestions, and comments about the writing in an effort for each of us to improve our writing skills.

Everything is done as "reply all" so that everyone knows what the others are saying and any points that need to be clarified can be.

Since we all write in different genres, we get a great cross section of the writing  world. So far, we've had a paranormal murder mystery and a mainstream novel with several unsettling aspects. Both are really good and I can't wait to read more. Next week, I'm anticipating an academic work from one of our writers.

I've been working on short stories, taking a break from my novel, Spared Parts. It's time to let that novel marinate and get some new eyes on these short stories.

This way we get feedback from people who are serious about writing and improving their skills. We still get to meet up for lunch when we can, and as always enjoy the company of future bestselling authors!

It is nice to see that there is an organization of people who loves to write a book. I believe you all gather together to share knowledge and experience. Through this, you can create future great authors and that is just so cool. I once dreamed to be an author, but I guess I am not destined to be a writer. But I am still happy that I am in the field of event management because I can still use my writing skills.
