I think I like writing groups. Its always great to be around people that are interested in the same things that you are. I'm in a couple groups right now that I recently joined. One meets at this nice coffee shop that is near me in an area I really like. Liked the group, but they do group writing projects for the purpose of developing writing skills. I'm all for it, except I only have time to write for myself at this point in my life so I don't want to spend any time working on things that I'm not trying to publish or a specific goal for me.
The other group just started and they are a theatre writing group so exactly what I want. They have only met once and still decidind upon a place and time to meet. I offered the above place. That would be a great start.
