Us as writers are naturally lonesome creatures. At least when it comes to writing that one last chapter - unless of course you buddy up while writing.
However one thing I love about blogging is how caring all the writers are. I've never felt more alive and complete then when I stop by each of your blogs and comment. The heartwarming feeling is unmatched by anything in the real world. Here writing is not only understood it's appreciated and welcomed.
The publishing world wants us to be better networkers and right now we're obliging. Each post is well thought out along with making new connections. We're finding that it's more than just for the agent or big publishing house, we're making life long friendships.
That doesn't mean we don't have off days. What does one do when this happens? Well email is a fabulous place to start, after all we are all friends. Venting is welcome because we as writers are here for one another, pushing each other to strive for the goals we set for ourselves. However sometimes we want advice that email just doesn't seem to get through fast enough to a good amount of people.
Writers Support Groups are amazing. After all we all need one another at one point in our lives. If you're not part of one you should be! There everywhere! Yahoo, NaNaWriMo, Facebook, Twitter, or all around the blog. The connections are everywhere. We need to continue to connect with one another and remember that we're in this together. There isn't a competition amongst us all because we all have our own unique voices. Kindness is what makes this profession one I look forward to always being a part of.
Join us in the support system us writers call home. Anything troubling you? Do you have a support group? How do you cope when you're stuck or just need some advice?
