Well, peeps, I’m going to join Austin Peay’s Creative Writing Club. It’s about time I did something on this campus besides sit in classes and stuff my face in the cafeteria (their pizza is so blazing yummy!).
I went to the introductory meeting last night, and the officers explained to we newcomers how everything works, critiquing etiquette, etc. There are about thirty people, and each meeting a few people read their work aloud, and everyone comments and makes notations on the copy they’re given.
To be honest, I don’t foresee myself reading my
abominable crap stuff for the first couple of meetings, but I’m looking forward to getting to work with other people’s writings. I mean, hello! Future editor in training here. I would be crazy if I didn’t.
[I’d just like to take a quick moment to say my phone is a pain in the butt.]
Anyway, so yeah, that’s what I did last night. I’m pretty excited to be part of a writing group in real life; that’s a first for me.
Have y’all ever been in a creative writing group in real life? How’d it work out?
