Tell us a little about yourself.

I'm looking for support to make my writing better and also to get it published. I haven't had anything published and advice from other people is always to network and go to writing conferences and do all these things that cost $$$. Which, may be good advice, but I do not have tons of money to buy copy editors or connections. I need to become awesome enough that someone wants to be my agent because I don't have the temperament to go the self-publishing and self-promotion route. I'm feeling pretty stuck with writing because once I write something I don't know how to DO anything with it.

What are you working on right now?

I wrote a YA novel this year (2013) and tried sending it out to a few people, agents and such, but nothing happened with it. I have an idea for another YA book, but I can't seem to motivate myself to work on it because I feel like-- why?? If it will just dead end like the previous attempt?? So I'm struggling with that, trying to get refocused. Having an actual writing group to meet with would be great.


I write stuff.
