10 Reasons To Join A Local Writing Group
Thinking about joining a local writing group or club but are not sure if it’s a good idea? No matter where you may be on your writing journey you may be surprised at what results can happen when you join writer’s groups that meet in person.
Here are 10 Reasons Why You Should Join a Local Writing Group:
Knowing that you will be meeting with other writers and have the opportunity to share your work will motivate you to write during the week and to bring your best to the table.
You will have the opportunity to read what others have wrote, ask them questions, share ideas and brainstorm. You will gain a great deal of inspiration when you have the opportunity to carry out these activities on a regular basis with other writers.
3. Gives you Time to Write
Life is so busy and often writers find that they put off writing in order to complete more pressing matters throughout the week. However, being part of a structured writing group will provide you with the time you need each week to work on your projects and meet your writing goals.
4. Provides you with Constructive Criticism
You will have an opportunity to share your work with others and get feedback from them. By having a group of other writers look objectively at your work and offer their honest opinions, advice and feedback you will be able to see where your strengths and weaknesses lay. This will provide you with the information you need to hone your skill and improve overall as a writer.
5. Offers You Guidance
When you run into writers block, can’t figure out how to move your story from point A to point B or can’t choose between two possible endings you always have a place to turn. By asking various members of your writing group they will provide you with the guidance you need to write your best possible story.
