Interacting with other writers is a great way to stay energized about your own work. This month, find a way to engage with the writing community. Seek out a writer’s conference or book festival to attend. Libraries, book stores and universities host author lectures and book signings that you can check out, as well.
If you’re like us, being around the writers who attend these types of events will motivate you to go home and make your stories the best they can be. In our experience, fellow writers are usually more than happy to socialize and network. So don’t plan to just listen while you’re there. Talk to those around you. Ask them about their projects. Share what you’re working on. You’re likely to find people who can offer solutions to some of the struggles you’ve faced. And you’re likely to walk away feeling more confident about your own projects.
