That's right! The Eagle Mountain Writing Group has officially made it through it's first year! Happy Birthday to US!
Now is a great moment to point out why having a writing group is the best. So, here I go:
1. Accountability. I might make a goal and achieve it...or not, but either way I have to tell SOMEONE what I'm doing. (side note-embarrassment is hard to get over for me, so accountability is a great motivator).
2. When I have a crappy day, week, month with writing they understand and they're the first ones to tell me to keep going.
3. I always know I can get an honest critique out of them. If what I wrote sucks, they will certainly let me know. Can't get better if I don't know what I'm doing wrong, right?
Here's the part where I ask you guys what you like about your writing group, book club etc. No matter what group you're a part of, feel free to comment. :)
