Authors should be active in their community

  • You’re totally right; we may feel like we’re writing in a vacuum as we plug away alone at our computers, day after day, but everyone we’ve met influences the books we write, and everyone who reads our book afterward will interact with it in some way. There is no vacuum. On the one hand it’s a bit disconcerting, but on the other…well, it’s nice to have a writing community to combat any loneliness we might feel from those typing-alone-at-a-computer days.
