I have a small group of writers I talk to every day. We have our own digital space to shoot the breeze, shitpost, and share our writing for feedback. I trust them implicitly with my words and their guidance is the most valuable resource I have for improving my writing.
Find people like that. People who will be honest and supportive. People you can trust. I always joke about how I hate everyone and prefer a life away from humanity, but in all honesty, if I didn’t have this group, I’d be lost. They’ve improved my life in immeasurable ways and I’m grateful to know them.
Cultivate those relationships. I’m glad I did.
