The Sarasota Creative Writers

    I think I allowed too much conversation to take place that was individual based and not group based. I think individuals in the group need to realize we have from 6PM to 7:45 and that is it. It is easy to get off track. We all need to recognize the limitation. I did not enjoy having to call stops to conversations. We are all adults and need to be aware of the time constraints and also of each other. If I run the group again I will handle the reading and the discussions in the following manner: five pages, no more than that to be read (which was just about right, I don't think we had anyone go over that), and then starting at the head of the table the first person who provides a critique will be the same person and the critiques will move around the table person to person back to the head of the table and the writer will remain silent and not defend or comment until after everyone has had a chance to speak. This allows all the ability to comment.

    Should we bring works in progress? Is this a critique group, or just a support and information group? Anyone done an e-book? I want to put my Zondervan book out that way. The rights have been returned to me.

      It is more support than anything. I have books on Kindle through Amazon.

      No cats at Maggie's home but my home is a different story. So, just a heads up, whenever a meeting or other event is held at my home I guess we won't see you. Sorry, Gary.

      Oooops, forgot to say there are NO cats at the libraries. Look forward to meeting you.
