Writers Accountability Groups are an important part of my methods and tools that help assure steady writing progress by providing external structure and community.

Writers Accountability Groups (or any accountability group) can take many forms, but in my experience I find a specific structure to be most beneficial for my work. The ideal group size is four to five members. Each member should be working on either similar or adjacent work.
