M is for Membership

is for Membership.

Whether it be membership to your local writing group or to your state’s writing group, joining a group where you can talk to like minded people. A group can help you by providing insights into how a piece of writing could work a little better, encouragement and networking.

I am a member of Writers Victoria, which sends out a monthly newsletter that has articles, oppitunities and classifieds as well as diary of what is on for writers.

  1. I just dropped by from the challenge to say hello. I am glad I found your blog. I am going to go back and read all of your other entries. I love finding new writing advice blogs. I completely understand the importance of becoming a member of groups, but I feel like I am so busy with work, family, trying to finally finish revising my novel (that seems to be taking forever) and other obligations. I feel like I don’t have the time to adequately participate in a group. I have joined groups in the past, but I wasn’t available enough. I am stuck in between this hard spot of knowing I need to be a part of a group, but not knowing how to even find one in my genre and then if I do, I don’t want to join, if I can’t be fully present for the benefit and to offer my eyes to other readers. I want to be a part of a group, but I am afraid that if I spread myself any thinner, I will never have a completed book. If I never complete my book, then the entire point is moot. Hope that made sense.
