I'm a full time physician, full time mom, part time writer who has always has too many irons in the fire. I've had some success with publishing my short fiction in literary journals and I'm currently focusing on the novel form. My current project is a historical/literary fiction novel spanning turn of the century Kansas to near future Texas, following the women of one family. I'm looking for other fiction writers who are serious about their craft but also like to have fun with and take joy in their writing. I'd love to find other writers to meet on zoom (or Discord- happy to host a server) on a monthly basis to exchange craft tips, podcast and book recommendations, publishing knowledge and to offer each other encouragement and feedback as we need it. I'm looking more for camraderie with others in the midst of a long project than feedback; I think too much feedback too soon just kills creativity. I'd be up for having writing sessions too, maybe taking turns with a warm up exercise and then each working on our various projects. It would be great to connect with others who share a goal of publication and are looking for likeminded community. What's the perfect group size? Six to ten-ish? Sounds good to me.
