The computer is still struggling on and my search for a replacement has begun.
Fortunately it's kept running meanwhile, so I can tell you about my guest slot over on writing buddy Patsy Collins' blog, Words about writing and writing about words.
Last year I was tasked with finding a good judge for the 2016 Nottingham Writers' Club national short story competition, and I approached Patsy about the possibility.
I'm glad to say she accepted, and it was this that led to our discussion about writers' groups, and my guest post today.
So I do hope you'll pop over, leave a comment and share what you feel is good about writers' groups.
