The word of the day yesterday was party–with writer friends. So, the talk went to writing–three, no four people brought things to read and for us to critique. Everyone brought food and words of Christmas cheer. Ours is a small loving group. We toasted one of ours who has gone on to the other side this year and those who simply could not come to the meeting. We talked about scrivener (the writing program)and sending work to contests. We shared writing as diverse as non-fiction, romance, a personal memory and an essay destined for a certain local essay market.
All words were spoken in love, received in love, and critiqued in a way to make them better.
What a wonderful group!
