It’s tough to stay motivated as a writer when you don’t have writers nearby. We all like to talk about our incredible epiphanies, the lows, the highs, the frustrations of putting those voices in our heads to paper.
Well, if you’re connected to the virtual world, you can connect with others who share your interests. Check out local writing groups and see if they have online critique groups. Google your genre and see what comes up. (If you Google “writing” 335 million sites pop up. Seriously. Anything from writing groups to grammar references are right at your fingertips.)
One community of writers is Writing.com. With nearly 500,000 members and more than 1.1 million activities, you are bound to find someone or something to help you out. And membership is free. This is just one of scores of groups online. Google your needs and see what comes up.0
