Remember that no matter how bad things get, there is always a silver lining.

Mine for the past week are that:

I miss the long conversations we used to have, but fully understand he’s busy these days. Since we’re both writers, we have a…

Catrina, We're delighted to have you in the novelist group! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. We save the wall for discussion, so please refrain from linking to blog posts there, but do add them in the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread.

And we do a live chat on Fridays at 3EST; instructions on how to participate are in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page.

A terrific place for advice and support.  AND, to help even more (if you are into creative non-fiction/memoir), I have 12 hours of free advice/teaching as a way to give back.  No gimmick, just great advice because I know how hard it is to write. Click here, sign up, enjoy!
