Intricate Worlds writing group is for fantasy and science-fiction authors from around South East Queensland.
Today we had a critique session and a writing activity. I was really excited to receive some constructive feedback on my Eventful First Kiss story. The other short stories and excerpts read were very well written and I enjoyed hearing them. There are very talented writers in the group.
The writing exercise was to write for 10 minutes about a randomly-drawn character, genre and setting. My was a haughty middle-aged man with a murder in a Synagogue, written in a post-apocalyptic world. Apart from me getting tongue-tied trying to pronounce 'post-apocalyptic,' it was loads of fun.
I look forward to our next catch up.
