For the most part, my writing journey is comprised of me, myself, and I. That’s cool and all, however, there are times where I want a cheerleader or two (or several) in my corner.

Who do I want as my cheerleader?

I would love to have those closest to me as my cheerleaders. However, as much as I would like that to be, I can’t assume that it will happen. Some don’t take me seriously as a writer. Others say they support me, but I’ve yet to feel supported.

It hurts, but I refuse to let that deter me. And I don’t want that to deter you either.

So who do I turn to now?

The internet has sooooo many resources where you can find support, such as online writing groups, social media sites, etc. An added bonus is that those resources may lead to offline meetups, friendships, etc.

You don't have to prove yourself to those who aren't supportive of you. They'll either grab their pom-poms or they'll stay on the sideline.

Write on,

Joy
