I always say a Writer is only as good as whom he/she talks to. “But isn’t writing what were supposed to do?” you ask. Sure. But talking, and more important, listening can do wonders.
Take my blog for instance. I love getting comments from people. It drives my blog. And when I respond I go over to their blogs and follow them. I learn more about them and build positive relationships in the process.
Yes I have some experience in publishing, but it’s always advantageous to see what the other Writer is talking about. You can usually learn valuable things from various sources. Fresh perspectives never grow old.
The same goes for people you meet in your daily life. Even someone you may not usually click with can offer you a new perspective on human nature. Great for character archetype construction.
And this is how you enrich your writing. By talking to others.
