It helps a lot if you have a scrabble of scribblers* at your beck and call to bounce ideas off of, ask for advice and proofread. Some of us are lucky enough to have a writer’s group to hang out with or group up on Facebook. Another option, less explored, is to find virtual writers communities.
As I prepared to delve into virtual worlds as valuable options for networking, my friend Alexander (who I met on a virtual writers’ island) left a comment a few days ago with “Link to 62 articles about folks in Second Life.” Alexander is my poster child for virtual networking with other authors. Explore his links and get to know this valuable resource.
Thanks to my own networking, I’m going to be lazy tonight and go to bed early.
*A group of writers should be called a scrabble of scribblers. I wonder if I can get that coined?
