Who said writing was a lonely occupation? Okay, so that would probably be me.. It needn't be though as I have just become part of a new historical fiction writers' group. It's small - there are just four of us - and we are all incredibly supportive, extremely knowledgeable and, of course, brutally honest with each other. Already, we have thrashed out the little things, ie, commas and hyphens to the big - structure, voice and the benefits of manuscript assessments.
I haven't forgotten my other writers' group, though. We just need different people at different times in our lives.
