From Those Before Us!
So today was wonderful for me! Several things unfolded that will change my writing for the better. First off, I ended up having a meeting with a fellow writer/author. I had been told about her as she was told about me as well. Speaking to her for the limited time that we had, gave me that feeling like we've known each other so for time. She took me through her journey to self-publishing using CreateSpace with Amazon. She also gave me pointers and tricks that helped her, as well as the reason why one evening she couldn't sleep and had to write.
I learned from the beginning that being a writer is not a socialable career choice. However today, being able to speak with that other author gave me a different out-look. That we as writers do not have to shut out the world. We can help one another, if we are not selfish, in obtaining and securing our own careers. I believe with my whole being that: we become better writers, by learning from those who have come before us!
