Today’s Tip: Groups

If you’re reading this right now, you’re already in one. Some people find this helpful, others prefer independence. However, writing groups can come in handy when you’re writing your story.

Who: Groups

What: group of writers who give each other feedback on their works

When: anytime

Where: wherever you chose to meet

Why: so you can get advice from different readers

How: In simpler terms, all you have to do is get together a group of people who love writing and meet up somewhere. But this can often be tricky. The more people in your group, the harder it is to find the perfect time and place to meet up. However, the smaller your group, the less advice you’ll get from different critiques. Or, you don’t have to meet up at all. With the technology we have now, Google Docs lets you share your story with multiple people and allows you to see the edits they’ve made. You can talk to specific group members in person if you want to, or just chat online. Writing groups are very useful if you want to know what your friends think and what you can improve on. After all, the best writer is still a reader.
