My Group Therapy

Help-othersJoining a critique group brings an end to the arrogant delusion of, “I have written a great story.” In fact, I’m discovering some hard, and down right scary, things about myself.

Scary fact one: My main character lacks emotional responses to events and family members. Should I be in intense therapy? Why is this so hard for me?

Scary fact two: My scene changes are abrupt or clumsy. I have to learn to ease through life and enjoy the moment…yeah right.

Scary fact three: My lack of parallelism must reveal my lack of balance.

Scary fact four: My pronouns are confused, but I thought it was about me.

On the positive side, I’ve learned I’m not alone in this world. I need the reality checks others bring into my writing and my life.
