I belong to a critique group, which meets every other Tuesday. They have helped my writing over the past two years and I can only hope I've helped them along the way. Not only do we get work done but we laugh in the process. Did I mention there is chocolate? The only draw back is that I don't get home until 11:30 (I live over an hour away). By the time I wind down it's 12:30 and I need to be up by 6:30. This makes for a very grumpy Wednesday.
But it's so worth it.
