[…] Happy Authors Don’t Do These Things! – Rachelle Gardner […]
Okay, I’m good with these three. Now to check out the rest…
Yep! I’ll just take this short version and run with it.
These are all great points. I think what keeps me happy as a writer is that I belong to a fantastic community of fellow writers. I joined the group in Denver back in 2009. After I moved east in 2010, we all figured I might just go my own way. But through dedicated email and social media correspondence, my participation in that group has been as strong and as prosperous as ever. I think with all the challenges that writers face (including those pitfalls you mentioned in your blog post), it is important to belong to a strong, supportive community, no matter where you find those people.
I love words.
I love books and publishing and talking incessantly about them.
I love authors and all the intricacies of managing a writing life.
I sell. I negotiate. I coach. I brainstorm.
