Yesterday, I took a leap and went to a local writers group. The idea was to meet like-minded writers and see what benefits there would be to joining the group. I was pleasantly surprised.
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I found that all four of us had the same passion and neither of us were published authors, just 4 people who each enjoyed writing. What made it even more interesting was that we each wrote a different genre. There was a crime writer, a romantic comedy writer, a psychological parody writer, and my fantasy. The meeting lasted 2 hours, and we all had long discussions about a range of subjects. The plan is for each of us to read some of our writing in the coming months and support each other in the process of writing.
I thoroughly look forward to meeting them again!
If you are in the area of Basildon and fancy meeting, view the website and come join us. Otherwise, I strongly suggest you join your local writers group. The support is invaluable.
