Critique Group

From: Rachelle D.
Sent on: Saturday, June 12, 2010 2:59 PM

I enjoyed meeting some new people yesterday and, again, I regret that I was unable to complete the critiques within the time span given. 

When I started this group, it was because I love writing and I wanted to start a supportive community for writers of all levels.  However, my goal was not entirely altruistic.  I also wanted to motivate myself and to create a supportive writing community that I would be a part of.

Initially, I said that I intended for the critique group to meet every month.  Some people wanted it every two weeks and I thought that was too often, but rather than throw the idea out without giving it a shot, I made the effort.

It has been very hard to keep up, and, in fact I have not been able to keep up.  So, yesterday, I said this, and what I meant was that we would now be meeting every month.

I was completely floored when it was suggested that I would simply be left out of half the critique meetups.  That is unacceptable.  If this were a group that I joined up in progress, then, fine, I am just one person.  However, this is my group.  I came up with the idea.  I created the group.  I advertised it.  And I have no intention of being only a part-time member of the group. 

I should have said this yesterday, but I was too floored to speak up properly. 

I will be scheduling the meetings for once a month.
