The Importance of a Writing Community

The Importance of a Writing Community

Not too long ago, I was in front of a medieval mill in France where people from all over the countryside would gather. People would bring their flour to be ground, and meet many other people there.

I couldn’t help but think that mill was a place of community. As I was listening to the flowing water, I thought about the importance of community. 

In this digital age we have so few places where we really feel community, places we feel we can be ourselves and talk to people who are like-minded and will support us.

I’m really grateful for Write to Publish, because it is like this kind of community.

In this group, you see people posting about each other, being supportive, and celebrating each other’s wins, no matter big or small.  

It’s a beautiful community, but the Writing Gym is even greater, because people are working together, writing together, and getting a feel not only for what each writer is working on, but also how to give quality feedback based on neuroscience.

All of this occurs so that the writers can grow. I’ve watched these people go from being co-writers (people writing together) to family. I’ve seen them go to each other’s weddings, fly across the country to see each other, and send each other their published books.

It’s an amazing, powerful community, and I’m just I’m really grateful to be a part of it.

I’m grateful for all of the people in Write to Publish, the support that they give to each other, and even more grateful for the people in the Writing Gym, whether they’re in the VIP Program, the Publishing Mastermind, or Novel Selling U, where they are working to market and sell their novels.

I Love to Write, But I Just Can’t Find the Time!

“I love to write, but I just can’t find the time.”

You’ve heard it before. You’ve probably said it. Life is busy, and it’s hard to find the time or energy for the things we love.

Having a supportive group to meet with on a regular basis is one way to ensure you’ll make time for you creative self. If your experience is anything like that of the people who participate in the Writing Gym, not only will writing not feel like one more chore, you’ll be sad if you have to miss the group.

“Some writing groups are so stuffy.

To do lists, taxes, grocery store lines– this drudgery of the day-to-day can give us all a curmudgeonly moment or two. Sometimes, it’s hard to break free from that and remember to play, to remember the joy of creativity and imagination. Getting into that flow is what the Writing Gym is all about. Be prepared to laugh.

“I want to be part of your writing group, but it’s so far.”

That’s the magic of the Writing Gym: It’s all online. No long drives. No parking meters or traffic. You can write from your own home, in the comfort of your jammies and bunny slippers, from your office, even from your car–not while driving, please!





“I don’t know. I’ve tried this kind of thing before…”

There are lots of kinds of writing groups out there. Here’s what makes the Writing Gym different: when you write with people who love writing as much as you do, writing becomes FUN. When it becomes something you look forward to, it’s easier to get in the workouts you need to turn out the kind of quality writing that gets published.

The Writing Gym not only gives you QUALITY instruction, but with the Courtyard Forum, where you can ask questions, AND with the exclusive facebook group, where you network, you get the SUPPORT and encouragement you need to make publishing a reality.

It doesn’t stop there, though. The Writing Gym is full of expert interviews with industry pros–not just any pros, pros at the top of their field, top agents, New York Times best sellers–the kind of high-flyers who can give you the answers you need to accelerate your writing career.

The Writing Gym gives you the insider’s unfair advantage to finishing your project quicker, having more fun doing it, ending up with a higher quality project, and increasing your chances of getting published.

Do you want to be part of the insider’s game?

So, close to finishing that writing project, but just need the nudge to get over that hump?
