As Iron Sharpens Iron
Writers Sharpen Writers
Most writers I’ve met are solitary creatures. We do our work alone.
Yet it is in coming together, baring our souls and sharing our work we are honed to be better at our craft.
I’ve found writers either instantly bond, or take some time to develop a relationship. Once that relationship is developed, they tend to hold others gently, recognizing we are each a work in progress – both in our lives and in our work.
It is in those relationships other can speak into both your life and your work. In the differences of opinions, the suggestions or the encouragement we learn. I learn. From these people, I hone my skills. I change and my writing changes. I hope I do these things for other writers as well.
My goal is to become a better writer this year. That means I have to commit to more time writing. We’ll see how that works for me.
