Short stories, memoirs, screenplays. People encourage me to write down my humorous stories, and I have published a few. I have found my voice, but I would like help in refining & polishing before publishing. So basically.... I need critique and feedback.
All of the above. I've yet to attend a workshop on publishing/marketing/getting an agent for writers that isn't ephemeral, elusive, evasive, or just downright abstract.
Yes. Constructive criticism is a good thing.
Writing has been on the proverbial back burner since Hurricane Gustav rendered me homeless and changed my priorities. Now rebuilt, I'm ready to get back to it!
I have crashed a motorcycle into a concrete wall, worked the oilfields of South Louisiana, trained two dogs in three languages, eluded matrimony twice, and view writing about my dysfunctional family as both therapy & retribution. I lie about my age.
I enjoy the casual, relaxed atmosphere and good, much-needed feedback on works-in-progress! One of my &amp;amp;#034;characters&amp;amp;#034; even showed up and participated in the meeting last night! Although every genre isn&amp;amp;#039;t my particular cup of tea, I do find it infinitely interesting to discover what others are working on. Rush-hour traffic on the bridge has been such a problem for me, I may have to adjust my work schedule to leave earlier. I don&amp;amp;#039;t like arriving late!
