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.
