Do you belong to a writing group to further your skills?
What advantages did you gain from a writers group? Any new skills?
This would be different for everyone. I joined a writers group a short while ago but each week, each person wrote a similar kind of story, whatever the topic. It got boring very quickly for me so I stopped going.
I was going to a "Righters for Justice" MeetUp group on Oahu. I decided I wanted to meet closer to home so I created my own writerʻs MeetUp group "Kapolei Fiction Writers MeetUp". We have been meeting once a month for five years. Interestingly enough my first book is about to be published and it is a nonfiction guide book ALL about public justice.
The biggest advantage I gained from my writerʻs group were new friends and contacts. I canʻt say I have learned new writing skills, but I have learned some web site administration skills. I recently moved my group from MeetUp.com to Facebook.com, mostly because Facebook is free.
our group called"Lifescapes" meets in the local library every two weeks. It definitely inspires me to write and we mainly write articles about ourselves and our families. We have a great time!

Does social networking bring us closer together, or further apart?While sites like facebook and twitter enable us to share vast amounts of our lives with others in an instant, are our intereactions in fact becoming shallower?

I had a wonderful time at a writers group I attended recently. It occurred to me that we could share or bring something new to the table. I'd like to see a list of creative writing prompts. One I liked was being handed five words and writing using those words for 5 minutes...can we try that...
