Have a Fantastic Friday!

Short post today because mom's in town visiting me for my birthday. :)
I've finally joined AbsoluteWrite and I already love it. :) The community is fantastic and you get writers from all levels there. It really is wonderful. I'm hoping to find a crit group or writing buddy there sometime. :)
Where'd you meet your writing group? AW? Real life? Blogger? Let me know! :)

Why did you delete your lovely poem?

Happy birthday!

I've got an account at AW, but to tell the truth I get a little lost on that site. I mostly lurk and read what others have to say. I know lots of people find critique partners there.

I'm a member of two writing organizations in my state. I've met most of my crit partners through them. They sponsor critique groups all over the state and one on-line, too. It's good to be active locally, I think, as well as on-line.

Have a great weekend.

Most of my writing feedback comes from my creative writing classes... but once I graduate (next semester, yay finally!) I'll have to find a new writing group. Previously I've always found support and great critique from -- though it tends to be a younger crowd. :)

Happy Birthday!

I really love AW -- that's where I first found like-minded writers, and I jumped from AW to blogging.

I used to hang out on AW, before I become heavily involved in blogging. Now I don't have the time for it.

One of my beta readers I meet through AW. We both had partials out with the same agent (old book). She contacted me after I left a comment on the thread and we became friends. The rest of my CPs and beta readers came via blogging. Several of my followers asked me if I needed a beta reader or if I would be interested in beta reading for them. Maybe that's why I love bloggng. :D

I found my betas & CPs on AgentQuery Connect - it's another fabulous site for aspiring writers!
