This is a little dated. I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago.
Our writing group has been meeting online during Stupid Covid. I think we tried to have a group once--but I've seen a few of these awesome people through this time.
Certainly not often enough.
A couple of weeks ago, we had an in-person workshop, and it was fabulous. The picture above is from the brewery where some of us wandered after the meeting.
I know I said this previously, but I will say this again: online workshops do not replace the camaraderie and bonds that we build in the writing world. I think writers have an innate vulnerability, and we need the support, encouragement, and creativity that Zoom cannot replace.
Sitting around a table, discussing the possibilities in a new story, and yes, sometimes sharing a beer make the bonds in writing groups really powerful and so dang interesting.
