This month marks the half-way point of my term as President of the Oklahoma City Writers, Inc. As I prepare this week for our 1st summer workshop meeting, I must admit that I am smiling. So far I have managed to do exactly what I set out to do when I decided to take on this new endeavor.
1)I've brought new life into a group that seemed a bit tired.
2)I've reached many new writers that didn't even know this group, that has been around for almost 100 years, was here.
3)I've made so many new friends and valuable connections.
4)I've found a critique group home.
And it is only half way!!!! I cannot wait to see what the 2nd half of my term brings. Hopefully a contract from the publishing house I submitted to 4 weeks ago! *wink wink*
Do you belong to a writing community? If not, I would encourage you to look around. Google is an amazing tool for finding your local community. That is how I found my group! If you belong to a local group, give them a shout out and leave a link in the comments along with the city it is located in. You never know who is roaming the blog boards hoping to find info for their area.
