There are very few of us who can write in a vacuum. The actual act of writing is done in seclusion, but we gravitate to others who share our struggles. Sharing the journey can make success easier . . . if we choose the right companions. So my question to you is this, have you chosen your tribe with care?
Or are you surrounding yourself with toxic writers?
None of us want to consider that there are those we should avoid, but there are. This doesn’t mean that we can’t encourage them from afar, or interact with them in certain situations. I’m not suggesting we become elitists, only banding together with those who have something to offer.
But I am suggesting we choose our traveling companions with care. Today I’m going to share some traits that might be a warning to keep your distance.
