No word count this week. Not cause I didn’t write. There were words. Just, they were all longhand in my softcover Moleskine notebook (which, as the reviews on Amazon will confirm, starts falling apart upon opening).
There was an important development in the writing arena this week, though. I got up the nerve/guts/gumption to go to the Chicago SciFi (or Spec Fic) Writers Meetup. Since there were a bunch of new people (and some people who’d been going), and a new Organizer, we basically set rules for submissions and critiques, laying the foundation of a new critique group. It’s a pretty good mix of writers, so hopefully it’ll help juice the creativity as well as getting a good variety of eyes on my work (and my eyes on a good variety of work).
