The Problem With Most Writing Groups...
By Sue Campbell
There's a big problem with most writing groups.
They don't actually help people become better writers.
That's not to say these groups aren't well intentioned -- but sitting around letting a group of people correct your punctuation and criticize your words choices on an early draft is a waste of time.
If you want to write the best book possible, first and foremost you need a strong story foundation. And, sadly, most critique groups just won't get you there.
But, that's not to say you should throw out the idea of a writing group altogether.
In fact, editors Anne Hawley, Rachelle Ramirez and I (along with writer Xina Uhl) belong to a writing group that puts story structure at the center of everything we do and has helped each of us grow immeasurably as writers.
We developed the format that allows us to truly evolve as writers, editors and storytellers.
We call it the Super Hardcore Editing Group—SHEG, for short.
And we're telling you exactly how it works what you need to know to start one of your own in a free webinar that we had loads of fun recording last week.
We basically just want to spread the gospel of SHEG, since it's been so helpful for us as writers.
