I met with a few fine folks in Busan last night – folks who like writing. As always, it was very relaxing, very laid back. We all had good comments on each other’s work, and there was no pressure at all. I’ve also come to love the way we handle submissions – we share work on Google Drive, and each member can either comment online or print stories and write notes on the paper. It allows everyone to read stories and do some brainstorming alone, and then refine those comments when we get together.
It’s totally awesome when we meet – my creative instincts go into overdrive, and I always feel so smart when I can offer decent commentary. It’s a great boost to the ego, and a great motivator to keep writing and sharing.
There’s no substitute for a good writing club – I think every writer needs one. If you ever happen to be in Busan, come look up the Busan Writing Group – we’ll be happy to have you.
