Wannabe Writers #18

Wannabe Writers is a weekly meme hosted by Sarah at Confessions of the Un-Published. This meme is what prompted me to start Writer Quirk, so I am thankful to Sarah for creating it and allowing ANYONE (even a quirkster like me) to join up. So go visit her site and the others who participate. Do it.

Where I am in the writing process:  I'm one of those people who is constantly rewriting as I write, so that's basically what I have done this week, rewritten (mostly in my head) the first two chapters of my WIP, while writing a completely unusable third chapter.

My current problem(s):  Time is still my biggest issue, but I feel rather good about the changes I'm going to be making to my WIP, even if my latest venture was total hogwash.

Sarah's ???:  [She's on vacation this week so no question from her!]

My ???:  Critique groups?  I'm waiting for the Sunday edition of my local newspaper to come out so I can read up on all the different groups that meet in my area, but if a critique group is not found through that, how do I go about finding/starting one?

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Hey Shalena! Have you tried Meetup? I joined a writers group that meets in my area. Also, search the internet for writers groups in your area. I am sure you will find something. Good luck with writing this week!

  2. You can also try looking through the library to see if they have any groups in town. That's how I found all my writing groups - one started at my library and the moderator had a whole list of different groups that he mailed out every month.

    My post is finally up, and I posted a new question too! :)

  3. I love the picture! Do you mind if I steal it sometime?


Thank you for reading!
