For all you aspiring authors out there, writing an entire book from start to finish can be extremely challenging and quite taxing especially if you are doing it all on your own. There will inevitably be moments where you struggle to keep up the motivation levels, whether you are dealing with a writer’s block, require a fresh perspective or just need to make sense of the ideas in your head. Whatever the reason, online writing groups can be a great way for writers to connect, trade advice, swap stories and find new opportunities. The fact that there are other like-minded people out there who not only “get” what it’s like to be a writer but also understand the struggles and challenges that you are going through can be hugely comforting.
