Writing Group.

A few weeks ago, I put up a post about Writing groups and asking if they were any good.

Last night I took the chance and went along to one.

It was a strange experience, and I am not 100% sure if I am going to stick it out, but I went along to see what it was all about. The anticipation for this almost made me back out. my the wife made me go.

The first thing I should mention is that I was, by far, the youngest person in the room by at least twenty years. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s also not so great for me.

I probably should have thought about this before going but it genuinely never occurred to me.

I felt like the reaper was hiding in there somewhere waiting for some of them to sneeze and keel over.


I really don’t know if I’m going to stick it out, I am going to go back next week to see what it is like on an average night and then decide from there.

The one thing was though when I was there, and they were talking, I had more ideas for things to write in those two hours than I have had in the last eight months.

So it’s swings and roundabouts

  1. Good for you!! Im so glad you decided to follow through. I like older people, they give less of a shit what others think generally. So cool and how I strive to be, except for the really cranky ones. Lol😉

      • Your wife sounds like a smart lady! I agree. 😊
        I wish I had a writing group. The only group thing Ive got going is a bowhunters group that meets at the range on Sundays.

          • I have, but there’s nothing unless I want to drive 3hrs. Boo!
            I am not socially adept enough to be starting groups and then you never know what kind of weirdo may show up. Lol
            Yes its an archery group that is comprised of hunters and those who just like to practice. All kinds of bows. I have a compound though.
