Twisted Minds Unite

Every writer needs a slightly twisted mind in order to make the whole words thing work.

I found a group of writers who are almost as twisted as I am, and we meet every Tuesday night (when the Tiny Human lets me go that is) and speed-write.

(Steve -- I know you're reading this. And it IS speed-writing, no matter what you say. :))

Anyway, I love this group of folks already.

They keep me smiling and they keep me writing stuff like this. In fifteen minute increments. Yikes.

It's like NanoWrimo on steroids.

So what are ya waiting for? Go find someone who loves the characters in their head just as much as you love yours!

Bekah Hamrick Martin is the editor of Real Teen Faith and the author of The Bare Naked Truth About Waiting, to release in 2013.

  1. Yes, I am reading this, Bekah. Aha! We want the "practice writing" group you now attend to emphasize quality writing instead of run-and-gun word-smithing, but quantity is good, especially for those who have twisted AND competitive minds! I think if one keeps a pencil or laptop keys moving, something will "come out" of whatever kind of mind one has - twisted or otherwise.
