Learn Something New Every Day

My Fellow Writers,

Every writer, even the most experienced can always learn something new. That is one reason writers should attend every conference they can to hone their skills. No writer, however, can attend them all.

Conferences have a wide price range and the costs of transportation and housing has to be added. They also can be several days. Sometimes we don’t have the time or the money to go to a full program. Does this mean we should give up our plans of attending? No way. Check around your community and neighboring towns. Look for writers’ groups you can join for minimal cost. Check for on the web for online groups. Some do critiques. Some have online publishing. Think about what you want from the group and find ones that meet your needs.

Please don’t make the mistake I did. I found several writing groups and tied to join them all. One problem was I spent so much time attending meetings that I didn’t have time to write. The second problem was I was learning so many new thinks I couldn’t keep it all straight and try different skills to find the best for me. I finally broke it down to just a couple groups and concentrated on learning there. I then took that knowledge home and applied it to my writing. I may change groups later, but I will never make a full commitment to more than two at a time.

Some of these organizations have local, one-day conferences like the one I will be attending on September 20th. “The Second Annual Castle Rock Writers Conference” will be held at the Philip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock CO.

Libraries are another good place to check for writers’ activities. Many writing groups meet at libraries, which also host programs such as “Getting it Down: A Workshop for Writers,” The presentation will be held on different nights at five Douglas County libraries.

Let’s keep learning. I’d love to hear about places you’ve found to learn more about writing and publishing.

nice post

I agree that everyone can learn something new every day. I belong to a cheapessayservice and I believe in getting inspired from everything I see. There is absolutely nothing in this world that is devoid of knowledge and identity. So, a writer can get inspired by infinite things in the world.
