Thank you for the great resources. I belong to a writer's critique group that meets twice a month. I believe in positive encouragement. Our group, Wild Women Wielding Pens (The WWWPs) is a motivating group of five.

I belonged to a writing group for several years. The group had someone who kept replaying an incident, non-writing, to the point I had to step away. I have not found another group nor have I found a critique partner. The circumstance with that writing group happened nine years ago.

Hi Quiet Spirit - I belonged to a writing group for several years. We had some good times, but people got busy.
