This is my first experience with a writer's group and I'm feeling uncomfortable with the critiquing. Maybe someone can make me feel better about the process. I don't feel qualified to offer advice.…Continue
"I'll give that a try- writing as if no one will ever read it. I've gotten that advice before: "Just get it written," so maybe it's time to pay attention and do it. Honestly, though, I do hope it will be read someday by other…"
"I started a memoir about raising a son with Borderline Personality Disorder but abruptly stopped because he did and said some terrible things that I'm sure he wouldn't want the world to know about. I'm stuck. I have this undeniable…"
