I attended my first writers group meeting in person today after the baseball game. I drove to Columbia, Maryland, to a coffee house where we were meeting. There turned out to be 7 people who showed up today and I thought it was an interesting session. The group critiqued my short story, “Wake Me When We Get There”, and one other story as well. The session lasted about 2-1/2 hours and overall, was very well organized.
I actually learned a lot by participating and having one of my stories critiqued. I learned what worked for people and what didn’t, and why. I even learned a little about how I can improve in the future, which is good. Of course, it means I need to actually sit down and write. That’s another story, I suppose.
