While browsing around some writing blogs out there, I came across one by published author JA Konrath that talks about Escaping the Vacuum. The post talks about ways to improve your writing during the solitary process of writing a book. There is also posted information about networking, feedback and just tons more that is great. He has some amazing tips and I encourage you all to read the entire post.
Here is just some of JA’s great advice:
– Join a writer’s group. Most colleges, libraries, and bookstores have some sort of weekly or monthly gathering of writers. If they don’t, offer to start one.
– Next time you’re among writers (convention, conference, writing class, literary talk) introduce yourself to them. If you find someone with similar interests, offer to trade manuscripts.
