    Another great meeting and solid, good writing. This group is very
    educational and enjoyable because of the "constructive" criticism
    generously offered, not only covering character and plot but the
    craft of writing as well. However difficult it may be to bear my soul
    through the written word at times, I really appreciate the feedback
    and always learn ways to improve. Thanks so much!
    Bill - I agree with the other comments posted and you certainly have
    a wonderful book project ongoing. Can't wait to hear another chapter!

    You are a very creative and imaginative writer. Skills can and should be learned. Imagination and the ability to come up with a creative idea cannot. Do not sell yourself short in any way because you are learning. Our feedback comes from wanting something we enjoyed and that has drawn us in to be more. This is a compliment to your writing.

      Thanks.
      Don't mean to be a downer, this is just where I am. I'm not even remotely thinking of giving up... It's just a 'Dang! I've got more work to do moment'.

      Ah shucks, Bill. Don't be discouraged. Often when we write, we know so much in our head that it doesn't get put down on paper clear enought foryour reader or listner to follow. Having people listen to something "cold" you wrote and getting those first impressions are "golden". I am always looking for that when I read a story the first time to a new group. That's my most valuable feedback. I don't want mistakes when I send my short story off to a magazine. I want my work to have the best chance that it can to get accepted. Good luck. Don't give up.

    We could always do more challenges focused on things like character and voice. Those are fun and really help with skill building.

    Sad, but I left there wondering about my skills a s a writer. The truth is that I just need to learn how to write different characters. That's what this group is all about - helping each other to improve as writers. I got some really good feedback and now I have more work to do. No one ever said it would be easy.

    Great meeting and special props to Beth for showing me that cartoon gangster talk is still fairly common knowledge "That's right, see?!"

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
