Just Write Cat

One Writer, One Journey

The Power of Support July 23, 2009

I revised my first chapter, posted it to an online writing workshop and received two reviews within hours.  And both were helpful.  One review really made me think about the second scene in my opening chapter…which then led to thinking about voice, direction – and everything else.  The reviewer was amazing – so helpful, detailed and encouraging.  If you are working on your first manuscript, I highly suggest joining a writing group – in person or online.  I belong to the Science Fiction and Fantasy group (there is a link on the home page).  Giving reviews helps, too.  Not just other writers, but it helps you become a better writer.  It’s a give and take world – so get out there and start giving!
