This morning I spent 2 hours or more listening to YouTube about writing, and writing critiques. Something I will be doing now: I am a member of Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance and they have a group called Give and Take which I have signed up for.
“Give & Take is a members-only benefit that connects writers of all levels who are interested in working with a critique partner to have their own work critiqued and to critique others’ work. Give & Take provides an opportunity for writers to both become more effective at assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a piece of writing, and to receive feedback on their own work. Give & Take is an equal exchange: an exchange of time, effort, and close reading. While the goal of Give & Take is to match all writers who apply with a partner, in rare instances matches are not possible.” The is will be part of my new challenge. This and writing about Ruby Luna. I have made a commitment to “The Things That People Say” with Tanya Whiton. This will be about the development of characters and their dialogs. I am to send a manuscript for this event. Looks like I will be busy. I am launching into life again! Wow! With writing! I made inquiries about the writing of the manual and have not heard back on its potential help yet.
I will be writing a blog about happiness shortly. Best wishes!
