The Writer’s Group

Written by larry on June 11th, 2012

At the suggestion of many, I’ve joined a writer’s group. We meet to share and  critique each others work, and hopefully improve our skills through the experience. I’ve got a short story in progress that depends upon a unique ‘twist’ at the end to make its point. I’d shared it with about four people before submitting it to the writer’s group, and only about half the readers ‘got’ the ending. So I rewrote that part, making it more obvious.

Then I sprung it on the group. Only about half the readers there got it, and of the two that didn’t, one was the member I was *sure* would get it.

So, its back to the drawing board, I guess. There was a suggestion to drop a clue or two early on, but I’m not sure how I can do that without tipping my hand.
