The circle is complete-both of my writers’ clubs are now meeting in-person as of this weekend, after a meeting this past Saturday at the local library.

It was strange and liberating seeing faces I hadn’t seen in over a year. It felt like much longer, as we crowded into the historic 2nd floor and reminisced about the “pre-COVID times” aka 2019 and the foggy mists of whatever lay before.

In this particular writing club, we read our pieces out loud, then get feedback and critiques. I try to emulate the leader-who never responds defensively to any comments and simply listens.
