Writing Group Diversity

I met with one of my old writing groups last night. There were familiar and new faces, each with a story to tell and a desire to improve his writing skills. Every time I attend a group meeting, I'm amazed by what I learn as well as the amount I learn in such a short time frame.
 
The diversity of writing within every group is as unique as a fingerprint or snowflake, and last night's group did not disappoint. We read, listened and critiqued a short story, a non-fiction book proposal, two novels and an idea for a screen play.
 
We explored dark comedy, apocalyptic sci-fi, time travel, an alternative customer service pedagogy, and a new twist on an old joke.
 
I always leave feeling creative and ready to write. For those reasons alone, it's worth attending the meeting. The fact that I get to learn something more is a bonus. I seriously suggest that anyone interested in writing should find a group with whom to share your work. You'll be astounded by your accelerated progress and the satisfaction it brings.
