The members meet in this castle-looking building, with dark, gloomy clouds overhead.
Tonight they're having a Write-in. I should go.
Here's how they describe it:
WRITE-IN: WRITERS WRITING.Bring a notebook or laptop and join fellow writers in lessening the loneliness of writing. Everyone from beginner to experienced is welcome to this open writing session.
But they picked kind of a crummy time --at 6:00. Right after work, in the middle of the supper hour, when the dog needs to be walked and there are hungry kids waiting at home. So I guess I'll just have to stay home and write all by myself in loneliness.
Later this month, they are going to pay homage to Rumi, the Sufi poet of love. But I'll be attending a graduation party being held in my honor that night. As always, saying yes to one thing means saying no to something else.
Perhaps I should join a writing group. Here is what the Writer's Place website says about writing groups:
The Writers Place is in the process of creating new writing groups. If you’d like to join a writing group, please send some samples of your writing so that TWP can pair you with an appropriate writing group.
A little intimidating. How will they decide what group I fall into?
Also, I'm just not sure. Do I really want to commit to showing up for something? Add a new obligation to my routine? Floating free has its advantages.
