Thank you for responding - both of you! I was hoping to be inundated with suggestions
but I guess you've covered the essentials.
How does one become a member of a writer's group?
I like writing personal non-fiction too. Much of what I write there becomes fodder for my parenting articles which is handy for my process. I just don't give it the time it deserves and I still think me best reflections will come with a bit more maturity and hindsight,
I'm only 36!!
I keep a gratitude journal in an on-line blog and get a lot of positive feedback from readers, which is encouraging but not satisfying my goal to improve.
So I took up writing modern haiku as a kind of exercise in word economy. At least it's something I can write everyday and if inspiration takes me, I can remember and transcribe it in a single action without getting too trapped at the keyboard wanting to write and write when dinner needs to be on the table in 10 minutes.
But what I really want is critique and I'm not getting it from anywhere. I had hoped to find it on this forum but there just doesn't seem to be much dynamic discussion going on here (hmm, maybe they're all busy mamas like me
Is a writer's group something that can be conducted via a yahoo group do you think? Or is it better/easier if it's face to face and social?
