Tomorrow I will be attending a meeting of the Denton Writers League. I’ve never sat in on a writer’s group before and am curious as to what the experience will be like.
I tend to play my writing a bit close to the vest. With the exception of my lovely-and-talented wife, no one sees my writing until I feel like I’m completely finished with it. Needless to say (but apparently I’m saying it anyway), working with a group makes me a little anxious. But I also think that it will be necessary in order for me to move forward as a writer.
My hope is that I’ll get plenty of tips and good advice. I also hope that by working in a group that there will be expectations to produce. That way I may stay on track and keep going. Discipline has never been my strong suit.
So, we’ll see how it goes. I need a group that maintains an open and comfortable atmosphere and that instills a need to keep producing. Hopefully this will be such a group.
