I've decided to join the Houston Writer's Guild. Its a writing organization in Houston designed to put new writers (such as yours truly) in touch with others in the industry, get critiqued and ulimately: get published. I'm hoping this will open up lots of new writing opprotunities for me. I'm also excited to meet other writers in the area and to discuss my book with like minded individuals.
The Houston Writer's Guild has a writing conference coming up in May, which I will be attending. I'm excited to attend lectures and seminars from people in the "bizzzz." With any luck, I'll be able to pitch my book to an agent or two as well. Should be fun!
