The Sunday Post - Writing Groups

Writing groups have the potential to be utter disasters or the blessed light shining down from above. I'm lucky enough to have a writing group that is supportive and always willing to dish out great ideas and insight. We try to meet once a month and give pieces up to a certain word count. However, scheduling does make this difficult. Life always has more planned for us than we have on our calendars. We are finally meeting today (probably the first time in over a month and a half). It is no one's fault, like I said, life has curveballs to throw on occasion.

I always look forward to meeting with my writing group. They always have interesting stories to bring to the table that I love reading. One of my writing group members has her own blog that I encourage you to visit. It is called WORDSMITHING AIN'T EASY. Our group, today, is going to be going over a couple of short stories, and I plan on doing some serious brainstorming for a potential novel that I want to try and write alongside the short story series I am writing call The Colliding Empires series.

What do you think of writing groups? What kinds of experiences have you had with them. I'd like to hear. Feel free to give your responses in the comments. I think a lot of people could learn from your experiences in starting or participating in their own writing groups. Thanks!
