I'm pretty sure it's no longer happening

Well, I started it last summer in hopes of getting it published for the holiday. Yes, Christmas Bells is completed. Well, in rough draft form anyway.

Now the question of what to do with it. I mean, eventually I will send it out to get published but in recent months, before sending out stories, I got used to having a writer's group look through my work, telling me what worked, what didn't, pointing out grammar errors, as well as spelling typos and just reassuring me that my work was not, in fact, complete and total crap.

I'm afraid that the writing group may be done with. I can't actually remember the last time we met. I believe October or November, but I would have to check post archives to be sure and it's not really that important. What is important is that we have continued to schedule and then cancel meetings for some reason or another. It's not any one person's fault, we're all busy and I am forgetful. I don't send out reminders or try to set up meetings as often as I can.

Anyway, it's frustrating because dates are suggested and then shot down. I just don't think that we'll ever have another meeting. I don't want to badger them about it anymore either.

So I think we're done for now. Maybe in the summer things will be different. We all seemed to have loads of time then.

For now, I have to figure out another way to have my work looked at. Hmm...

Sometimes writing groups just don't work out. Hopefully you'll find another one soon :)

I hope Deb's workshop notes prove useful to you.
