Mtn View Writing group forming

I'm starting a writing group which will meet once a month in Mountain View. We could email our work and critiques back and forth, but I think a monthly meeting establishes a hard deadline, which I've found is important for getting writing done, at least for me. If you can write, I'm open to a wide range of writing genres, since I read a wide range and I write fiction and non-fiction.

About me: My most recent non-fiction essay "Gimp Geek" has been accepted in a book due out in the winter. I also write children's picture books. I'm currently working on a non-fiction book about mothering, but after that I plan to finish a literary novel about travel. I was a first reader for a friend's literary novel published last summer by Harper Collins.

I provide thoughtful honest feedback and lots of encouragement. I'm looking for the same.

If you're interested, or know someone who is, please send a writing sample to waterowl@livejournal.com

Hi Thida! It's a small world, especially on LJ. :)

Abigail, Niels' mom, friend of Yoko's, used to see you at Mtn View LLL. :)
