Have you ever been in a writer's rut? If you're a freelancer, a novelist, a blogger or any other type of writer, I'm sure you have. One way to help boot the block is to head to a writer's conference or workshop. How can it help you?
You'll be surrounded by like minded people. What better way to spend a day or even weekend than by chatting with other writers? Okay, I'm sure one of you is answering with a better way, but not much better.
You'll learn something new to try out in your writing. Writer's block can be kick started with inspiration from a workshop or encouragement from another writer.
You'll finally have time to write. That's one of the great things about attending events; there's often a writing activity that you feel annoyed doing at first, but soon realize you love doing.
You'll feel validated for spending all your free time on writing. Do you ever wonder why you spend your time writing that novel that's going nowhere? Well, hundreds of others wonder the same about their writing. You'll meet them at a conference. It'll make you feel good about yourself, I promise.
To find workshops and conferences, just google the genre you're interested in. Give yourself a price limit. These events can be costly but you can usually find something starting around $100. Local adult-ed workshops tend to be less costly and can help you meet local writer friends.
