Eleven Things I’ve learned About Running Writing Groups

In September last year, I started some new writing groups. Even though my role is facilitator and training, I have learned a lot about writing itself. Here are 11 ideas that came to mind:

1. Writing is annoying and rewarding.

2. Writing shared is writing halved.

3. Ignore the basics.

4. Set up for success.

5. Share your progress.

6. Imagine you’re being paid.

7. Aesthetics matters.

8. Social media is a gateway to more writing.

9. Regular writing will help your career.

10. Stop.

11. Writing never ends.
