I think it's important for a writer to associate with other writers. There's always something you can learn about the craft of writing, new markets available, and good agents. I like to share and accept advice from other writers.
I've had experience as a technical writer but now I'm concentrating on fiction and poetry.
My current project is a novel with a setting in a coal mining town in West Virginia. I'm also working on a one-act play.
I have a 10 minute presentation on the craft of writing fiction.
I think it's important to practice the craft of writing every day to try to improve your skills. You don't have to write a story; there are plenty of writing exercises that you can do just for practice.
