Writing All Alone?
Yes, writing is a solitary endeavor,
we lock the doors to write forever.
Close the curtains so they think we’re gone,
fingers ache when the muse is on.
Cell phone switched to silent mode,
so, what do we do in our lonely abode?
Facebook, Twitter, Likedin and blog,
we talk about writing and the hours we log!

That’s just the way it is with the writers I know in these techy days we live in. However, I am also logging hours by submitting my writing to fellow writers to comment on or critique. Below are the main places I go to write. Try them yourself, you’ll see what I mean. Most of these require you to submit author bio and writing sample to join.
The Memoir Writing Society Still finding my place here.
She Writes, I am also a member of several groups here. An incredibly friendly, large group of writers.
http://www.everywritersresource.com I’ve submitted poetry for a contest here, but lots of resources and opportunities to submit.
The Writer’s Journey Roadmap Not a critique group, just a bunch of us writing personal essays & poetry from weekly writing prompts. This is a warm cozy place.
writers camp starts in July, goal: 50,000 words and a finished work. Am I nervous? You betcha’!
A writer’s group where I submit writing and comment on other’s writing. Huge inspiration for me. Many well-published authors here, along with newbies like me.
Where do you go to write online? Questions, answers and comments welcome. Please take a moment to say hello.
See you soon,
