The stereotype of the writer is the heavy drinking — or maybe tea-drinking loner with dozens of cats for company. With a feel that truly great art — great writing — only comes from pain.
Well? I know that it depends on what you like to write, and what you like to read, and what brought you to where you are today. However, that stereotypical writer life doesn’t sound very healthy to me.
Be you an introvert, an extrovert, or something in-between, most of us thrive in supportive environments, that push us to achieve something greater.
In this day and age of the internet, supportive writing communities can be found everywhere.
