All Part of the Journey

August 6, 2011

In life, there are many things that others somehow forget to tell you, or maybe hesitate to. That is a huge reason to network with other writers, particularly at conferences and workshops. You find out essential tidbits about your craft that no one speaks about in public, such as needing to watch out for embedded formatting codes in your ms, or choosing programs that offer you better control over your social media sites.

Writers conferences are an investment in your ongoing writing education. The Midwest Writers Workshop, held annually (late July) at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, is a terrific example of one. Its emphasis is on sharing information between authors, publishers, agents, editors, publicists and everyone in between. Newbies and old hands mix at such events. Never be afraid to ask for the information you need. Chances are you’ll come away with so much more!
