Don’t do life solo. It’s so much better with friends!
OH my gosh! Did you see Trusting You is LIVE on Kindle and in paperback.
My dream came true. I am a published author <3
This week I want to speak to my fellow writers out there. I know as an author I am always asking other authors for their best piece of advice. After two years of going it alone and a year of writing and working inside a community I can say without a doubt my best advice is to find your tribe.
I hear this a lot on social media, find your tribe and you should but what I think people get confused on is this. So many people think you only need 1 tribe, heck I used to think that I had my people I didn’t need others.
But that isn’t true. I love my people, the women I consider friends are some of the best people I know. They are loving, kind, people who would at the drop of a hat be there for me even when most live on the other side of the country.
What I learned recently is we need a tribe for each section of our lives. This year I gained a work tribe and yes I consider several of the people I work with day in and out friends now but in the beginning they were people I trusted at work and the friendship grew.
Same with writing. In 2021 I joined a writing community. I had no idea what I was going to get but I knew I needed more. I needed to get out of this self imposed prison I trapped myself in and make a difference.
My besties are amazing but they love me and are not always the best at being critical which is pivotal in writing. Joining this writing group was new and I wasn’t sure what to expect, I was disengaging from a previous group because it didn’t meet my needs so I was worried this wouldn’t either.
However I went in with an open heart and mind and I found my writing tribe. We give feedback and no one takes anything personal. It’s all about growth and not competition. I mean that! There is a fellow romance writer in our group. Who made it her mission to help me publish on time.
We actually published the same day. A published author is helping me grow. This is what it’s all about helping each other achieve our dreams. Trust me there is plenty out there for everyone. In all honesty I feel my friend says it best so I’ll let her take it from here.
