Though the process of actually writing is often a solitary activity, it’s not something we can take on alone easily. We need support, encouragement, and people around who know our struggles. This is why finding and participating in a writing community is a healthy writing habit.
Including other people in your writing process can give you different perspectives, a sounding board for ideas, and provide knowledge you might not have alone. They also don’t know your story, so they can bring a fresh view. On top of that, having fellow writers in a community means having people you can talk with to sift ideas, get past writer’s block, and provide accountability.
In this episode, Leigh and Ley discuss the benefits of having writing friends, their own experiences, and how you can find and build one of your own.
