Writing group meetups in London anyone?

Hey guys,

I'm looking for writers who would like to join me, maybe twice a month at the least for a writers group! Idea is to have writing support – crit, encouragement etc. consistently. It'd be over a glass of wine or coffee and hopefully we'd be having a laugh as well as getting some work done in the process.

Rounded up to three because I adored Kingston and I did really like Charlotte too but the insistence on the tonic and the dragging on of the betrothal could have been spent on more moments between the couple.

Still enjoyed it but also skim read a bit.

I don't know - I felt like there wasn't enough development for the I love you's? I did really like Corey though, she had spunk.

EDIT: Idk what my problem was, I felt a sudden need to re-read this and enjoyed it a lot. Changed rating from 2 to 4 stars.

“For some reason knowing tomorrow wont be so bad doesn't make today pass any faster. In my experience. But that awful day was Monday, and now it's Friday and I don't remember how bad I felt. Now that is a genuine blessing, because I do remember how bad I hated all that misery I can't remember.”

“The true alchemists do not change lead into gold; they change the world into words.”
William H. Gass, A Temple of Texts

“Gay people are born into, and belong to, every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And whether we know it or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends, and our neighbors. Being gay is not a Western invention. It is a human reality.”
Hilary Clinton

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
