To get advice from other writers about writhng is general and my work in particular.
I have been writing in connection with my work for 30 some odd years: text books, research articles, and physics and astronomy articles for lay audiences. I just started writing non-work-related material about two years ago. A short novel, some short stories, and some non-fiction.
Lately I have focused on fiction.
Essentially all of my work related work has been published. None of my recent non-work related material has been published.
Now that I am retired, all days are more or less the same.
My name is Mike Corwin. I am a just retired professor of physics from UNC Charlotte. For the past two years I have been writing fiction and non-fiction not related to my work and would like the opportunity to speak with other writers about writing.
As always, the meeting was very helpful. Lots of good advice delivered in a supportive way. I had to leave the meeting after 4.5 hours as I had committed to some yard work in the afternoon. In general, three hours would work out better for me. I would suggest shorter pieces although I know it is more helpful to have longer ones reviewed.
