When you are a writer, there is almost no joy in the world like sharing your gift with others. You want everyone to have a chance to read what you write. With that comes the terrifying ‘what will they think of it?’ feeling. That’s why writer’s groups are so great! In writer’s groups you can share, critique, and learn. Learning to take advice from writers helps make your work better, and helps you with writers who ask for your advice. With the help of other writers, you will want to share more, and you won’t be as terrified of what people think of your writings. Hanging out with writers in real life or online can really help you grow as a writer. Here are the links to some writer’s forums. They are all really great and have threads to discuss writings – both your own and other’s.
