I love writers groups.
But, as a writer, I’m concerned about punctuation and can never decide if that term should be writers’ groups, since the group belongs to writers, or just, plain writers groups since it’s plural and lots of us are there.
Probably other writers understand why I care about what I just mentioned.
Writing is a solitary job, but writers are communicators, so when we get together we just click. We understand each other in ways ‘normal’ people can’t.
I only belong to two groups with speakers and events and one critique group, but I have belonged to others in the past and still consider members of those earlier groups to be my close friends.
If I ever stop writing I’ll probably have to change my identity, because I am a writer and that’s an important part of who I am.
