Ok, I confess...I'm seeing another critique group. I can't help myself. I love both groups so much, it seems unfair to have to pick just one. I have needs, people.
Today I had lunch with my once-a-month critique group, and the elephant cupcakes they brought from Rao's Bakery were too cute not to post.
We meet once a month to critique a big chunk of a novel--one person hands over a half novel or whole novel manuscript, and at the following month's meeting we give the critique. When we don't have anything to critique, we still meet to have lunch and talk about our writing and what awesome books we're reading.
They also got me this adorable pillow that will hold my pajamas when I go to a slumber party...
And this teapot, also adorable.
Now tell me, who could resist such cuteness?
