It took over a year for me to join a writer's group. What a waste of valuable time! Tonight we meet (even though I have to wear a face mask because of my allergies) to talk about genres, do a writing exercise, and have fellowship with others who share common ground. An author's work is mostly mental, or used to be. Today, however, we indie authors have to do it all! What a blessing to join with others who share our passion to write. The support is invaluable and I urge you newbies out there to find one in your area and join! When you find a group where you fit in, it's a lovely thing, indeed!
