Why Authors Should Join Writing Groups

One of the best things you can do for your career is to get together with a feedback group.
This provides you with connections with other authors who are as serious as you are.
It’s not necessary for them to be in the same genre. It is critical that they be as passionate and hardworking as you so you can support each other.
And don’t be afraid to drop out of a group filled with folks who claim they are writers but who never write. Nothing puts out the spark faster than realizing that your writer’s group is just a coffee klatch.

    Never be afraid to share your work. You might get some great feedback that bolsters your confidence in what you’re doing and provides detailed comments on how you can improve the manuscript.
    Do check in with your heart. If something doesn’t feel right, wait to see if you hear the same comment from at least two other people. Then consider whether it might be accurate.
    Stay true to yourself!
