An old friend invited me to join an online writing group and I accepted. The hope is that if I have a place where people can see whether I'm writing or not, I'll actually write more fiction. Another major hope is that people will leave comments and / or critiques on the posts, though I won't hold my breath on that one. After some pondering, I decided I was really only comfortable doing this as a protected blog. I know my fiction's not all that, but it is mine and I'm not really keen on the idea of throwing it out on the internet in general. That said, if you've been around here for a while or I talk to you on Twitter, I'm probably okay with you reading it. If you're interested or just curious, drop me a line and I'll set you up with reading permissions.
