I’m astounded by the creativity and imaginations of my fellow writers within the nomad novelist writers group (NNWG). We have our first weekend meet up, seven of the nine of us are going, tomorrow in Oxford.
Over the past two weeks, mainly today, I’ve been critiquing 2000 words of each attendees work.
I am so proud to be grouped in with such amazing people. We vary in our genres; romance, paranormal, thriller, sci-fi, fantasy and in our experience, but share our passion.
My fellow writers tackle subjects of religion, eugenics, physics, love, death, passion, hatred, battles and war – to name but a few.
It was a joy to critique their work, and I am more than a little nervous to receive their critique of mine. After the trauma of the critiquing – where we are forbidden to speak when being critiqued so we can’t defend our pieces until the discussion after (eeek) – we’re heading to the pub, and hopefully we will still be speaking!

I’ll be back after the weekend, and I’ll update you then.
