I've met a lot of wonderful people who are members of IWSG and on the first Wednesday of each month we post. The list of members is available each time so you can visit others who have joined.
New news: I sent off a query letter to an agent last week. That's a first for me, since I've been self publishing for the last year. I needed to explore my options before releasing my next story, Call of the Dragon: A Dragon Stone Trilogy Book 1. Self publishing has had many advantages for me, but I would like to see if my book could possibly get published non-indie. We shall see. Until recently, I wouldn't have had the courage to query an agent, but I'm growing and learning as I go.
Where are you in your evolution as a writer? What are your goals and how are you realizing them?
"Perhaps it is just as well to be rash and foolish for a while. If writers were too wise, perhaps no books would get written at all. It might be better to ask yourself 'Why?' afterward than before. Anyway, the force of somewhere in space which commands you to write in the first place, gives you no choice. You take up the pen when you are told and write what is commanded. There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you."
~Zora Neale Hurston from Dust Tracks On A Road~
