I wrote my first novel, "Bajo La Sombra del Yunque" which I am not currently interested in promoting. My second novel, "Perdidos en Paraiso," is almost completed. I am really excited about this one. However, I'll give many of my friends (and critics) copies to read and provide me with some feedback! I may be one of the oldest writers here, but I think we should really do something that is quite common in the U.S. Some of us should meet ocassionally to discuss writing from different perspectives, perhaps even start a writing club where we meet every so often. Writers are usually lonely people. After all, if writers get too involved in things, too much into the "social sphere," they sacrifice their creativity. Basically, we have to be "observers." That's a lonely life. So it helps to speak to other writers, people without that "ego" that is damaging to the phyche of a writer. I know I'd love to sit with a bunch of writers and discuss life and other topics, interchange writings, constructively criticize one another. I don't think that's ever been done in Puerto Rico. What do you think?
