Hi Laura & Juliana
I’m here looking for the exact same things that Juliana listed. Exactly those things.
Only my husband and a couple of my close friends know I write. I don’t find much use in telling others. Most of my friends don’t even share my passion for reading so, as horrible as it sounds, I wouldn’t really value their opinion on my WIP.
I’ve tried contacting local writing groups but have had no luck -no one seems to be active. I signed up for a 6 week writers workshop in the hopes of finding some local writers that are close to where I am on the writers path. That starts next week. I’m always looking to improve and practice my writing craft.
I hope to make close friends here that I can share the path to publishing with.
Best to everyone!
