Writers' group

I need to spend my evening going over the pages I received at the last writer's group meeting. I have read each of them, but haven't hit them with the red pen. Both pieces were good, but aimed at two different audiences.

Anyway, we were supposed to have 20 pages written by tomorrow and I am about 9 pages short, but I think it's OK. I did finish two pieces and get a decent start on a third. I'm not going to feel too bad. Besides, I'll be closer after I write a bit tonight.

I mention this to say that if there is anyone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who is looking to attend a writers' group and is OK with it being some folks who aren't published or all that polished feel free to join us. We meet at 7 p.m the first and third Thursday of the month at the Hurst Public Library, right in the middle of the Metroplex.

Google it to find the address. We'd love to have you.


  1. I'm glad to see you've found a group of like-minded folks. That's one of the hardest things to do sometimes.

    Good luck with the critiques. Here's hoping they give you the kind of feedback that will help you grow as a writer.

  2. We are only two meeting in but it's been fun so far. Lots of talking about writing and sharing advice.

    But we could use more members. Would make for a deeper conversation. One of the librarians wants to participate and is going to try and join us from now on I think.

    This next meeting will be the big one though. We are bringin back pieces for the first time. We'll see what kind of feedback I get.

  3. It's excellent when you can share the writing with other like minded people.

    And here's a strange thing, I lived in Irving for 6 months back in the mid 90s working for E&Y, just down the road from there.
