I actually stumbled upon the group by way of a simple "writing" search. This looks right up my alley. Not only am I interested in the writing benefits of a critique group. I am also looking to meet new friends who share my interests.
I tend to gravitate towards writing fiction in the fantasy and sci-fi genres, as I am a massive geek. Yeah, I said it...and I'm proud of it! Aside from narrative, I guess you could say that I also write spoken word. Okay, okay. I'll let the cat out of the bag. I've been in a hip hop group since 2003. So I often find myself writing in the realm of rhyme.
I try to write about every other day, though sometimes that doesn't work out. I'm hoping being a part of a writing group will help give me the boost I need to write a lot more frequently.
I haven't yet been published. As far as a website goes, I'm a member of Writing.com....I need to use it more often than I do. http://www.writing.com/main/portfolio/view/heliacalrising
I haven't been involved in critique groups, so I'm very much new to the idea. I am, however, very interested!
I'm Michael. Up until now, my focus has been on short stories. But I've finally started writing a sci-fi novel (myself and a friend have been worldbuilding it for the past year). I'm deep into Chapter 2 and would love to improve my skills.
Had a great time meeting everyone. Fun group of people!
