Adventures in Writing Workshops

My library occasionally hosts writing workshops, and I try to go to the fiction-related ones when I can. Most presenters talk about their own writing process a little, and that’s always fascinating.

Getting someone else’s perspective on any writing-related topic is usually helpful; just the process of hearing things explained in a different way can spark new ideas. It’s also encouraging to be in a room full of people who are all working towards similar goals. I spend a lot of time alone, lost in my own head, so it’s nice to get that occasional reminder that there’s a larger community out there.
