The Camaraderie of Writers ~Brinda Berry

Master Immersion

I understand how lonely writing can be. When I began writing many years ago, I didn’t have a support system of writers. No place to learn craft. No friends who understood struggles over a manuscript. No mentors to advise about the business.

Then I joined a couple of writing groups, and it all changed.  First I discovered the Diamond State Romance Authors group. Later, I joined a group of writers from READerlicious.com. I met the second group after taking classes with Margie Lawson at the online Lawson Academy.

Last month, I traveled to Houston to attend an Immersion Master class with Margie and the READerlicious gals.  It was my second time to attend a session.  The Immersion Class is an intense experience.  A writer spends several days fine-tuning a manuscript, learning with other writers, and forming personal bonds that last a lifetime.

We worked like wordsmith maniacs , but we also had a lot of fun. One of the most memorable activities was acting out a scene from a manuscript. I served as narrator and could barely read through the laughter.

No matter where you are in your journey as a writer, I urge to look into writing groups.  I’m so grateful I did.

  1. If you lack support…get a writing group. And if you still lack support get a better one. My writing gals have become some of my most cherished friends. My biggest blessing in my writing life is my READerlicious girls. I couldn’t do it without them.
