While I was off on my quest, my friend and fellow writer Sione Aeschliman posted an interview with me! (Wasn’t that sweet of her? Trust me, this is a gal who knows how to write.)
In the interview, we talk about current projects, writer communities, and ambitions. It was so fun! Here’s a tidbit for you:
Q: You and I have talked a lot about getting involved in communities of writers. Why is it important to you to interact with other writers?
Getting involved in a writer community is not only a great way to develop professionally, but writers are now some of my best and closest friends. I think writers are all a little crazy–and people outside our profession don’t always get us. Fellow writers, especially ones who have been through the agent and/or publishing wringer, are an invaluable resource to a new author. They can teach you the pitfalls to watch out for, and offer a little reality check when we start thinking that getting our first book published is the end-all, be-all of the industry. (Hint: it’s not.)
