Writing is actually a team sport. Associations, editors, and agents are crucial, but joining a good critique group provided the greatest impact on my writing early on. Here’s a shout out to four authors from my ACFW critique group, all published novelists now. I’m thankful for the HUGE input they’ve had on my writing and for whatever if any help I was to theirs :-). Let me know if anyone is interested on more info on critique groups for writers. I’ll share what I know.
