I loved the comments on my last post about social networking. If I could keep reading them over and over, I would.
Why? Because I got the answer I'd hoped for.
Most everyone wants a connection. A real connection.
Oh yeah, we want to promote our work and all that too--cause that goes with the territory. But everyone agreed that being genuine counts more than anything. And if we are genuine, it goes to reason, we'll connect and learn more which in turn will help our craft.
I learned to write a synopsis last week because of my connections. I've found a critique group to read my work. I've learned about agents and the detailed process of getting a book published.
My connections have enabled me to grow and that in return will help me write a better book.
What knowledge have you recently gained through your connections?
