I know I've talked about it before, but I'm going to chat about it again. The power of having a supportive writing community is incredible. It doesn't have to be super organized, although that is nice.
I recently did the proverbial coffee with a writer friend and that hour and a half or so completely spiked my focus and attention. It breathed fresh air into my writing practice.
The following week my critique group and I had our bi-weekly meeting. We met at a new place (more fresh energy) and I thought it was a good meeting but after reflecting and processing I realized it was a frickin' amazing turning point for me and the story I am working on.
The choice is yours who you include in your writers' circle. Remember trust and relevance to you.
And of course remember to have fun. That's why you are writing in the first place, right?
