January Writers'Group

Happy New Year dear Writers!

It's high time we had a group, I was aiming for Wednesday as usual, but that's not possible due to a multitude of other events... so it's Tuesday 29th January.

Please bring your sharpest critiquing skills, your work, and 7 or 8 copies.

Helen

    The January Meetup was great! But I am not usually free on Tuesdays. I'd be interested in a novelist group if it met on Fridays.

    Thank you all for another wonderful evening. I really appreciate the feedback and suggestions. BTW, those tears weren't meant for dramatic effect. That day in 1996 stands out in my mind. The macho side of me was saying, "Come on now, Man Up!" The sensitive side was saying, "It's alright, chile. Go on, let it out." The sensitive side won. You're all such great writers and nice folks. I've got work to do.

    does anyone know roughly what time the group finishes?

      Hello Isabelle - latest head count was 22 people, so first ten to arrive get to read, and with 20 mins each (plus a couple of short breaks) we ought to be done by about 11.15 ish.

    Hi there, this is my first meet up post ever, and this looks very interesting. I don't know if i can arrange for copies of my text if i were to bring a text, would that stop me from reading?
    I love the enthusiasm in this thread by the way. Hope all is well with everyone!

      Copies tend to generate better feedback, so it's in your interest to bring them but no, it's not at all obligatory!

    I would like to come to join you . There is too much people if i understand well so i just want to come and listen !

    ooh... we have 15 signed up for Tuesday, so the first 10 to arrive will get to read... Sorry to have to put limits on this. If you've signed up but can't make it then please do change your attendance status - it's tricky for the café staff if I book a big table then we have a significantly lower turnout. If you don't want to read something but come to listen and offer feedback then that's fine.
    Thanks for your understanding!

    Not sure what I'll be reading. Gotta pull something out of my stash. You can be sure that it will be something music- or family-related. I'm not great at critiquing others, although I appreciate any input that comes my way. I might not take and run with your suggestions, but they are always welcome. You guys are just getting me started. Miss ya muchas. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
