April is Writing Buddies Month: Just Say Yes, and Write!

Just Say Yes, and Write!

 

The month of April is Writing Buddies Month:

Women Who Write, write. Right? And, so we should. Should write and write and write some more and be motivated by each other in our writing. Why not make a commitment to write and share that writing with a buddy?

Every day, three times a week, or even once a week – you and your Buddy determine the level of writing and reading to which you can commit. At a minimum, it should be once a week but you are encouraged to go for it!

The rules for reviewing are the same as we have for our readings in the monthly meetings.

-Senders: ask for what you need (flow, grammar, believability, consistency or point of view)

-Receivers: share your opinion on the piece (what worked, what questions arose)

-If solicited, offer suggestions for improving the piece.

– Be kind. Be clear.

Writing is an art. As such, it can be perfected by regular and dedicated practice. And by sharing with another like-minded person.

I am always inspired when I leave our monthly meetings by the wide variety of writing shared, and by the many direct and profound comments offered on a particular reading. Join with us in the month of April and make a commitment to write every day… yes, every day! And see where you land on the first of May.

Just say, Yes!
