The Creative Writing Group:

It was a dull miserable Tuesday morning but not for me as it was my creative writing group meeting at the Coastal Academy Community Centre in Clacton on Sea which commenced at 1pm. I loved going every week as it was not like a class where you were being lectured how it write, it was very informal where we read out our pieces of writing that we had written for the week and then had a bit of chitchat until 2:30pm/3pm. I had met some lovely people in the group Chris, Christine, Janice, Stephen, Shirley and Tony who were my parents age or older. Stephen led these meetings by giving good criticism of our work and how to improve it. Sadly I had to miss some of the meetings due to other engagements that I had. As well that Stephen sadly left the group and moved away.
After Stephen’s departure Shirley took charge. However, it was long before there was a replacement for Stephen. It was a retired English teacher called Joan who Tony knew and had asked her to come to the group to help us with our writing. I really didn’t like the way the meetings were run as it felt like I was back at school in my English lessons, and the other members of the group weren’t very impressed either. Joan soon got fed up and stopped coming saying:
“It was more of a chitchat group than a creative writing group!”
Also not long after that Shirley left as she was moving to the Lake District.
 A week later I stopped going as I had lost interest in the group and began doing Online Library Learning courses in creative writing. I also began uploading my writing on a creative writing website called Booksie. I felt a lot happier not going to the creative writing group. It was good while it lasted as I enjoyed going when I could but felt it was time to focus on my writing and see where it goes from there.
