Writers' Groups

Love my writers' groups. Love them.

It's funny to think back about 5 years when I first ventured online in search of one to join. I was terrified, really, to share any of my work. Now...well, they're really the reason I'm still writing and the reason my writing is any good at all.

But don't you hate when someone in your writing group comments on something...and you know she's right but STILL you worked so hard on that scene/character/dialogue/opening that it breaks your heart to admit that it still has problems?

Guess that makes the positive comments, the ones that say "Wow I loved this part..." even more valued, right?

Love my writers' groups. Love them.

We love you right back :-)

I have to agree with you, too. I don't know what I'd do without the support (Cindi's quite good at telling it like it is -- actually, come to think of it, so are you!)
