Writing is not a solitary profession. Sure, when we are in the process of creating our manuscripts we almost always work alone. There is hardly ever a "perfect" situation in which to write. We have to learn to block out disturbances and get down to the business of concentrating despite obstacles. But once our projects are done, and maybe during the process, we need encouragement and coaching. Writers' groups are great opportunities to network with other talented individuals. Here, we can critique, praise and offer constructive criticism. It is where writers assist writers. We all need help and fellowship. Once a month, once a week, whenever. No matter the level of success, fresh perspectives should be welcomed. For me, they sure are. Even while communicating from a distance, I greatly appreciate the advice from fellow writers. We need to be there for one another. Thanks to all who have helped me along my journey. I will be available to help others find and maintain success. Here's to polished manuscripts!
