So I majored in Creative Writing in college and loved my workshop classes. I vowed to find one after I graduated so that I kept up with my writing. That was over three years ago. I have not been in any writing workshops since and my writing has been getting less and less. Sound familiar? If you are an aspiring writer, love to write to release stress or just like to write as a hobby, but don't really find yourself motivated, then join my group. I love to write, but I feel that its too hard to do it on my own. The reason I loved it in school was because there were deadlines and then the next story had a deadline and the next one, etc. And this got my creative juices flowing. But without a deadline or a group to share and critique my work with, I just don't feel inspired. So I am starting this group in hopes that I find local girls who share my interest in inspiring subjects to write about and sharing our work with each other in hopes that our compliments and critiques could help us all become better writers. My style would be: a few girls meet up after being assigned a specific theme to write about (I will decide upon a length, perhaps it will be the same every time, perhaps it would change, depending on the subject, but so that everyone gets a chance, should not be too long). We share our stories (read aloud) and then give each one a few minutes to dissect each story. Everyone will get a chance to read and everyone would get a chance to critique. The reason why its a girls only group is for a few reasons. One: I find a lot of mixed meet ups tend to turn into a place to hook up, I do not want that, all I want are girls who want to write. Two: Sometimes its hard to share certain feelings and thoughts in front of the opposite sex, heck sometimes its hard to do it in front of same sex, so lets not make it double uncomfortable. And third: I run a girls only book club and I love the topics of some of our conversations, sometimes things that most guys wouldn't dare discuss with a girl and I kind of want to bring that openness into my writing group as well. I will schedule my first meet up once I have a few girls in my group. Each meet up a topic will be chosen at random, after each girl writes and idea on a paper and the ideas go in a hat and I pick the winning topic. As for the first week, I will just randomly pick a topic from my own ideas. In the meantime, I will also figure out where the Meetups will take place and all that jazz. Hope to meet some interested ladies!
