Getting to Know Your Writing Group

writers groupAt the last meeting of our writers’ group we spent some time writing responses to a series of questions.  We could pick any question and write as much or as little as we liked.  Later we shared our answers. I certainly learned more about my writing friends as I listened to their responses.  If you are looking for a way to get to know the members of your writing group just a little better try sharing your answers to this list of queries.
