Writers’ Gatherings

Everyone talks about how a writer’s life is a lonely one and in some ways they are right. To sit alone and write doesn’t provide much for a social connection. However, as a writer one of the best things is to seek out a community to belong to. When NaNoWriMo comes along they have forums full of other writers to talk to and discuss all aspects of writing with.

Writing groups are another great way to meet other writers and find support. Many times the local library will be privy to whether there is a writing group, or the right direction to find one. Another way to meet other writers is through workshops. Here you learn something about writing as well as whom else around is also writing. Sometimes this can lead to creation of writing groups. Conferences are another way to find writers. Though I have never been to a conference myself, I have heard a lot of good things about going to them and would encourage those who can afford it to go.

Writing groups, NaNoWriMo forums, workshops, and conferences are all great ways to meet other writers and learn that writing might be lonely work, but that doesn’t mean as a writer you are all alone.

About heathersdomain

I'm B. Heather Mantler. I have been a writer for most of my life, with my primary focus being novels. In 2010 I learned how to finish a book through NaNoWriMo and have since used NaNoWriMo sessions (November and Camp) to write my fantasy series The Kings of Proster. I also have three other novels out; Committed to Her Enemy, Chenarcor, and Princess or Pirate. I've always got another book on the go. You can find me on Twitter under B. Heather Mantler. Also if you have any suggestions, or things you want to me to write about, send me an e-mail at mantlerpublishing@gmail.com.
