Why Go To a Writers Group?

When everyone else is rushing off to work and hoping to beat the traffic, a writer is free to choose when and where he or she works. I love that about writing, but you can’t always stay inside and write. Sometimes you need to get out and meet some people who can inspire, provide perspective, and maybe even improve your writing.
WriterI am talking about writers groups. They are a great place to meet some other writers and compare notes.
I went to a local writers group the other day. It was low key and more social than educational, but I learned a lot and met some fascinating writers.
One has just returned from a successful visit to the Worlds Book Fair in Germany. There was a woman who has spent time in jail and is teaching people how to avoid the trap she fell into. Another woman was a radio cooking shows presenter and has a cooking and poetry book. Some of the writers were so quiet, I have no idea if they are writing, or just thinking about it. I can learn from all of them.
From meeting with other writers I have learned;
·         Where to get books printed locally for a reasonable price
·         How to format and sell e-books
·         How other people market their books
·         Which local writer events are worth attending
·         How others schedule their writing
There was so much more. If you are at all interested in writing, I suggest you find a good local group and spend some time sharing with them. You probably have things you can pass on to others too.
If you are not a writer, perhaps a local trade group, or craft group, or mothers group, or professional group would suit you.
Why not give it a try?
