    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.
