Last night I went to the local writers’ group meeting. It was the first time I’ve attended in well over a year. There were a lot of new faces, some people I knew, and some I didn’t. One that I only knew through email, so now I have a face to put with the name.
It was nice. We did some writing exercises which is always good to get those brain cells swirling. Some people read. I read a terrible old short story from years ago. Nobody else shared any fiction. This is part of my ultimate goal to reconnect with my creative writing this year. The jury is out on whether it actually helped or not, but it certainly didn’t hurt. I’m looking forward to going again next month, anxious to write something fresh to share with the group.
Giv’er Miramichi is about “What’s up, what’s new, what’s happening”. We are focused on building people up, supporting one another and celebrating our successes.
