I love the company of fellow writers. No one understands the struggle, the exhilaration, the fascination with craft, the sheer obsession required to be a writer better than a fellow writer. But writers are geographically scattered, near and far, and getting together on a regular basis can be a challenge, except on Twitter.
These are the chats I’m aware of. Find one that appeals to you, add a reminder to your calendar, and join the conversation… just don’t forget to write, too.
