I used to belong to several writer’s organizations. I attended conferences too, and spent a great deal of money and time on these things. I don’t anymore. And I can`t tell you exactly when that all changed.
I think I got help and information from conferences and from my writer’s groups. But now, I feel I can get the same thing online for free. I still love books about writing, still follow many of my writing friends on Facebook, but I no longer bother with the meetings, and the conferences.
So I’m wondering…Am I the only one? If you still belong to a writer`s group, or still attend conferences, can you articulate just what there is that you get from this that you don`t get online? Maybe I’m missing out.
