What Would Wild Women Wielding Pens Do?
As I write, even if it is not a piece I'm able to share with my writing critique group, I try to imagine what they would suggest. What parts would they advise I change? Which lines would they say I need to tighten up? Geeze Louise--what about all those darned ellipsis you use, Sioux?
Who knew? Not only does my critique group help me immensely with my writing when we meet, and they push me to write and submit with greater frequency, but they also help me in absentia...
If you're curious what goes on at our writing critique nights, below are some photos of the members. (I'm not in any of the photos because I took the pictures.)
|We're so excited to get together on Wednesdays, this member drove to our critique meeting|
(at a very high rate of speed,with her car window open). We were too nice to make a comment on her hair.

|All of us are quite flexible, as you can see embodied in this member.|
