I first joined American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and enjoyed their critique groups. In fact, it was the crit group that showed me, in a good way, that I knew nothing about writing. And through a small crit group, I've grown so much!
I've really enjoyed being a part of these groups because I've been introduced to many new books and authors of similar interests. It's a great community where we all have a story to tell (or multiple) and know the struggles other are facing because we have faced them as well. But that's not all! Having a writing community provides encouragement and motivation and accountability for all of us writers and aspiring writers!
What kind of online blogs, sites, and groups are indispensable to you in your writing journey that you would like to share?
