After a few sunny days it’s again typical Irish weather, but I like it as it is, so although I appreciated the summer like week, I feel more comfortable with the Gothic sky on my head, mainly because it inspires me the most of the time.
The reason why I’m writing this post still comes from my disastrous weekend spent in Listowel.
Don’t you worry, this should be the last rant post (I’ll probably post a couple of writing exercises I’d done during those hours, just because I like the outcome!) but I had to write it because I’m still trying to perfect the action to take and doing something to improve, or like someone said prove her wrong.
That’s why I’m thinking about an advice I was given.
Yesterday I spent a very nice day with Maya and my friend Christina. I can’t thank her enough for the constant support to me, to my writing and my creasy thoughts. She agreed on the positive feedbacks I received from you guys, so this encouraged me once again to keep going.
She’s been following me since I tried my first English writing, Arilla, something that was supposed to be about a girl travelling through the under the sea kingdom and ended up looking like a display of all the absurd things she could eat during her travel making her look like a barrel on legs!
Well, it was my first experiment in English and I only had tried to write a book in Italian about pirates before that, so…
But anyway, I was going to say something else.
One of the suggestions I received from the people that were at the workshop with me was to have a look at writers groups as they might help with constructive feedbacks.
This lady who gave me the suggestion said that back in Cork she found a group of fantasy writers. They were just four, but they were committed, honest to each other and it was a very good support.
I tried to have a look at the writers group on the area I live in but there isn’t much. Plus, I think that it would be difficult to find a specific YA fantasy writers group.
So I thought that maybe doing it on line would be a great solution.
But how should I do that?
So here is my invite and question:
If I wanted to form an on line writers group how should I do it? Where should I start? Does anybody know about a good one? Does anybody want to volunteer to start one anew?
I’d highly appreciated your time and help!
Thanks in advance!
