W is for Writers

I love the caption with this picture.

I have met and known many writers in my life. Some famous, some not. But we all have a common goal: to write the best stories we can. My favorite writers are members of the critique group I belong to. We've been meeting for many years.  Some members have come and gone, but the core group is still working hard.

Roseann, Kathleen, Brenda, Charlene, Dorothy, and I'm the one sitting down.

Here are some of the awesome writers in my life who came to support me when my first book came out. Writers are a different kind of people. For some reason, we're eager to help others learn our craft even though that may mean we're replacing ourselves. Most writers that I know have big hearts and want to share the joy of seeing great stories in print.

I wanted to give a shout out to my critique group, The Wasatch Mountain Fictions Writers. I would never have sold without their help.

Do you find other writers inspiring and helpful?  



  1. I like that caption on the picture too. I have not found that in person other writers are very helpful, perhaps I was with the wrong writers. Online however they tend to be great!

    1. MJ,
      That's too bad that you haven't found good writers to meet with. You're right, the Internet is amazing for finding people with similar interests as our own. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. It's wonderful to have writer buddies to commiserate and celebrate with because they know exactly what you're going through. :) Happy writing, Kathi!

    1. Laura,
      Writer buddies are amazing. My critique group is my writing family. Thanks for stopping by.
