So, I’ve been doing this writing thing seriously for 2 years this week. WOW. Two years…
It has been a great ride so far. I have written three full novels, and partially written three others.
I wrote a NF book that sold. I wrote two additional NF proposals that are on submission to publishers (I hope to have sharable news in the next few months). I found an agent. Found out I needed a new agent for my YA fiction.
I’ve gone to conferences. Joined an online crit group. Formed a live crit group. Learned more than I did through my traditional education.
I discovered the overwhelming world of social networking, blogging, facebook, twitter, writing forums…WHEW!
And I have made friends. Some very good friends.
Which leads to my question today…
Where have you found your writerly friends? Which forums have proven the most helpful to you and why?
I found most of my crit partners and online buds through Query Tracker and the QT forum. But I know there are loads of other great forums out there…
So lay it on me – how and where did you meet your friends?
