What a writer needs most – support.

Writing is a lonely occupation, writers are often shut away in rooms for hours at a time for days on end working on their latest manuscript with little or no contact with others for a considerable time.

That doesn’t mean that writers are completely solitary. At some point they will exit their room and need to be round people who understand them and can provide comfort and support. Not just about their writing, but also life in general.

As part of the writing process, a writer will need feedback from a variety of people, such as beta readers, copy editors and others who can take an objective look at their work to help improve it. This itself can be a stressful time when you don’t know how your beta reader will receive your work.

The other important things that writers need are reviewers and readers. No writer has ever make an impression if their book is stuck in a drawer never seeing the light of day. At some point, one has to stick ones head above the parapet and present it to the world.

So, if you know a writer, try and be supportive, give them encouragement when you see them, these little boosts that they get from you mean a lot.
