I write fiction in irregular great bouts, and keep poetry like a confessional-analytical diary, occasionally polished up to worthiness. I less frequently try an article or sketch or play, and rarer now are essays. Though I admire a rigorous one. I want a workshop for an atleast somewhat impartial, critically capable audience and an obligation to continue writing.
I suspect I would gain a lot from simply funtionally practising as a story-teller. Being able to see people's reactions and to stand a greater chance of identifying what those reactions are to, to see what is communicated, where the value is, and add nuance to my aims, theories and understandings.
I did Nanowrimo, but it seemed somewhat savage. I enjoyed very much a group in brick lane a few years ago that was much more mature than me. The author would finish reading and wait till the critical discussion had concluded before rejoining, which seemed wise to me as it operated like a very small moment publishing, and brought a real fallout experience... Not that I lived up to the group's spirit, though.
