Writing Shouldn’t Be Lonely

I think anyone who knows me, knows I’m definitely not silent about my writing. I’m frequently talking about it “in real life” with my friends and family, and if tweets had sound, mine would be a blow-horn. While we’re usually sitting by ourselves in front of our computers or notebooks penning away our latest story, writing still shouldn’t be lonely. I’ve outlined why writing with peers is great for me, and I’ve also included some feedback from fellow writers about why they love writing with others, too!

Write For Yourself First!

I think one of the biggest things I struggle with as a writer is first writing for myself before anyone else! When you want to make a career out of writing, sometimes even writing the first draft will become consumed with thoughts like, will this be good enough? While every piece of writing advice is subjective, and no two writers are the same, perhaps if you’re floating along in the same boat as I am, you’ll find some comfort in my words ahead!
