Tonight I will haul my oversized behind to writer's group despite my annoying allergies and lack of sleep last night. Why will I go out when my body would prefer some rest at home? That's easy, because my friends at group rock!
If you're a writer and haven't joined some sort of group or community I highly suggest you do! In fact I suggest you join a group no matter what your interests are.
Attend a community class. Go to a book club. Join a sport! Being part of a community or group is so invigorating you (probably) won't regret it.
I always stay too long at group and I talk too much (though I pretty much always talk too much) because I have way too much fun. In group I feel connected, encouraged, and inspired. I always go home and write.
Some questions for thought until my next post: What inspires you as a writer? Have you enjoyed groups you've attended?
