My First Writer’s Group

On Sunday afternoon I joined a new writer friend at a Panera Bread near my house.  She regularly meets with a few other local writers weekly as an informal writing group.  The women write all different genres including young adult, fantasy, mystery, romance, and even erotica.  I’m so glad I had a chance to meet a great group of writers!

It was very informal, just us hanging out with our laptops, note pads, great food, and good conversation.  I’ve never attended a writer’s group before, so I had no idea what to expect.  I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and welcoming they were.  It’s not that I expected them to reject me, per se, but whenever I meet new people I’m nervous that we won’t click or get along or it will just be horribly uncomfortable and awkward and I’ll have to think of some logical excuse for why I have to leave right after I’ve arrived.  I’m happy to report that it didn’t seem to be the case.

It was fun to chat about plot problems and possibilities, logistical issues of exactly how to tell the story in a way that conveys the right mood, and even the prospect of having to kill of a character or two for the sake of the book.  It was enlightening to sit and converse with others who feel the same passion and love for writing that I do.  While I know none of them personally, I was able to connect on a very personal level.  We all care about our work, our characters, and the story we just have to tell.

I arrived for an afternoon of writing and coffee, and I left feeling inspired.
