Making Connections

Connect groupIt has been a hugely busy week. I’ve been killing the data on my phone replying to emails, reading blog comments, visiting blog websites because my time on public transport has been the only free time I’ve had for social networking. But that’s not a complaint. It’s also been an awesome week thanks to Melissa Maygrove’s Follow Fest ’14.

For the longest time I’ve been thinking how great it would be to widen my circle of writer friends, get more involved in online communities, get back into the habit of beta-ing and being beta-d. But finding these new friends seemed like a time-consuming task and there was never the time to spare.

Post Follow Fest ’14 I’m suddenly on the radar of a ton of writers and everyday I have all these fab blog posts popping into my inbox with tales of my fellow writers’ exploits. It’s very exciting and a great example of doing a small thing and reaping a big reward.

NaNoWriMo is right around the corner and I’m looking forward to tackling it alongside some of my new-found friends.



  1. Are you on Shewrites? It’s a great community for women writers. Also, search for other bloggers on Twitter by using the “amwriting” hashtag. Visit some of their blogs and if you can, leave a comment. Sooner or later, you’ll begin to build those relationships with other authors. Best of luck to you!
