I'm not sure if this is allowed, or something that should technically be made by the writers and artists team, but wouldn't it be great if we had a free event for us writers to meet up and chat?
I actually went to a 'How to Hook an Agent' event a few years ago which was very useful in terms of understanding the industry. But the most inspirational thing about it was getting to talk to all of these writers of different ages and genres afterwards. Talking about each others work made us all motivated to go home and write more.
I read a lot of questions on this site, and its nice to see that people are willing to help each other out, but part of me thinks that most of us are at home, smashing our heads against our laptops, wondering how to keep motivated; most of us probably don't have many friends that are also writers, and its very lonely work.
Sometimes all you need to be motivated is to talk to someone who gets what you're going through; and someone who's also creative so is used to coming up with ideas.
I think it would be great if there was a location, even if its just a pub in London, or somewhere, for writers to get together for a few hours, bounce off of one another, talk about what their working on, what their struggling with, and we'll actually find a community that isn't just on a screen.
I'm not sure how this would be made possible, but what do people think?
