Enjoying Writers in the Grove

I LOVE my new writer's group, Writers in the Grove. I look forward to every session. We get prompts and everyone writes and then shares. It's teaching me a lot about my natural voice and stretches me to try out new techniques. My goal has been to work on narration not exposition or poetry, but I can tell my craving for arc is getting trite and I need to put more struggle between the problem and conclusion... and be more real. I'll share some of my shorts when I have more time.

Diana is one of my favorite members. She writes beautifully symbolic poetry. When one person awed at her concepts, she replied, "I write truth!" That's what I want to do better at.
