I have been quite delinquent in my duties as writing group moderator, failing to do a wrap up post for week 7, so I’m just going to make this the main post for week 8. It’s the middle of the semester–ENOUGH SAID. In any case, I may follow this once-a-week format for the remainder of the group. So, let us know how you did last week and what you hope to accomplish in the week to come. And if you’re looking for inspiration and insight into the creative process, check out this post from Profhacker, rounding up some recent work on how writers write.
