Writing Goals: Join Writer Groups

Miriam E. A.Thompson > Miriam’s Blog > About Me > Writing Goals: Join Writer Groups

I am a stubborn, independent thinker. That being said, this writing process has taught me to get out of my comfort zone and embrace working with others.

In a move totally out of character, I joined writing groups on Facebook and LinkedIn. At first, I was a silent observer, scrolling through posts from time to time. They did not convince me that groups would be beneficial to me or my writing process.

Was I wrong?

All it took was one question, and the responses were amazing.

Since then, I have immersed myself in a couple of writing groups and have reaped the following rewards:

  • The opportunity to make colleagues from all over the world.
  • You will find there are people who really want you to succeed.
  • Consider your writing group as your cheering section.
  • Do not be afraid to share your ideas. A second, third or fourth pair of eyes can help you improve your writing projects.
  • Are you looking for an editor, a cover artist, or a publisher? They are members of writing groups too.
  • Writing groups can help combat writer’s block.
  • There is strength in numbers. Join a group of like-minded people who can inspire you.

However, I let the introvert take the lead when I start to feel overwhelmed.

Introvert? Extrovert? Let me know!
