Since finishing a short creative writing course with the Open University I've kept in touch with several e-friends that I met on the forums. Throughout the course we provided mutual encouragement, reading and criticising each others efforts, and I found this strangely intimate interaction to be the most valuable part of the course. Thirty of us have kept in touch and formed an e-publishing group, Cafe Three Zero. Last week our first collaboration, a collection of 23 short stories was published. It's called 'Tales From the Cafe: Vol 1' and is available on Amazon's Kindle store and at Smashwords.
Of course the moment you release something you can see loads of things you wish you'd done better. I suppose that is an inevitable, and a refreshingly welcome part of the creative process; evolution in action.
