Recently a friend of mine suggested that I join a writing group, or critique club, or something. My immediate reaction was “No way! What if everyone picked on my writing? I don’t think I could take that.” My friend insisted that most people in writing clubs are really nice, and they really help improve each other’s writing. I’m still not so sure. Should I believe her and join a writing group? Or would I end up just stuck in Camp Bully? I’d love to hear from both people that have joined writing groups and people that write solo.
