G is for Group Effort
This is a good thing. Introspection and quietude are great qualities for a writer. However, if we lean to much on those qualities we run the risk of thinking we have to do everything ourselves. And that's just not true, and not productive.
So its basically up to us to do the actual writing. That is the solitary effort part of the writing game. However, basically every other aspect of building a writing career can involve other people. Not just that, but things can go more effectively and productively when we make them a group effort.
We an involve other people with:
Writing groups and book groups (obviously)
And lots of other things! By involving other people we can simultaneously create better work and also make things easier on ourselves.
So don't be afraid to ask for help! Building a successful writing career truly is a group effort.
What about you guys? What collaborations and group efforts have worked particularly well for you?
