Writing Tip: Time to be engaged
Engage with the writing community. There are days where you won’t feel inspired. We yearn for the good times of writing, where everything else fades and there’s nothing between you and your words. Only once the final thought has been answered do you release your breath and realize that you’re hungry, thirsty, and it’s been hours since you last realized your story wasn’t the real world. Let’s face it, most of the time we sit down to write will not live up to our fantasy of what writing should be like. For that we need community. I’ve suggested finding a writing group, but I’d also like to recommend finding your community on social media. I’m just beginning my foray into this world and have a lot to learn, and I’m excited to do so from other writers. Here’s a few I’ve found. Check them out and then send me your favorites! We can all rise by supporting each other.
