A week or two ago I told you about my NaNoWriMo experience. What I didn't tell you was one of the side benefits of that experience.
I live in a small farming community. We are about five hours away from the nearest city of any size. Because of this, there was really no local NaNo support here. No community. No write-ins etc.
However, through fate (I love fate - don't you?) I found that one of my acquaintances that I know through a Textiles and Fiber Group also happened to be doing NaNo this past November. I didn't know she wrote. She didn't know I wrote. We began supporting each other with our writing experiences. We have become friends.
As time has gone on we started to explore writing groups for continued support. It turns out that even in our small town there is an existing writer's group. The downside to that is that the location the group uses is inconvenient and uncomfortable.
So my new friend and I have decided to form our own writer's group. If you live in the Mount Gambier area or know anyone who does, and are interested in writing, we'd love you to become part of our group. There is no fee and we meet twice a month. The first and third Thursday of each month from 1.00 to 2.30 pm at the Mount Gambier Library.
Come one, come all, come join us for our very first meeting of the Write Here Write Now writer's group, Thursday 20th December, 2012 at 1 pm. All interested in writing are welcome.
Score one for fate and new friends!
