Writing is a lonely occupation. We have all heard that and it is very true...for the most part. However, my journey has many helpers along the way. I would give some advice to novice writers....look to your friends...what talents do you have surrounding you? I am constantly amazed by those who have stepped up to offer to help out with a website design, or advertising know how, or connections in the community to get the word out about my books. It is all the more special to me because they volunteered their talents to help me achieve my dream. So look around you and you may just find that you are not alone on your writing journey. Never take these wonderful souls for granted!
