I joined a writing critique group that meets twice a month. I have attended twice so far. I really enjoyed getting to know other authors, hearing about their writing journeys, and listening to what they are working on.
Last night I even shared something I have been working on since my trip to Prague. The seed of the idea started then, but I have been tweaking and revising it off and on. I think it is almost ready.
It was such an encouragement to hear the feedback and ideas from the authors in the group. And helpful!
I can't wait to attend again. I highly recommend critique groups!
