I've joined a writing group, which is a new thing for me; I tend to be reclusive, so it's a bit of a stretch. Pikes Peak Writers has been around for a while, they have meetings, critique sessions, and host book signings, so they seem legit. I've signed on to attend one of their meetings that's toward the end of August; it's being held in the back room of a local bar, so maybe it will be fine - even I turn social after a few beers.
