This particular quote is from the Northern California Publishers & Authors (NCPA) website: www.NORCALl.org. If you happen to surf on over there, your introduction to this particular organization will be inviting. I have been an active member of this one for three years. Before this, my membership and visitations to one club or another was dispersed through 15 years. During this time, I have had five books published. Pretty cool, right?
In conclusion, look for resources into writing projects. People are the best resource. Ask questions. Ask for guidance. Be patient with yourself as you learn updated techniques and grow brain cells, lol.
Tell me what you think? Which book and/or author did you choose? Share what you know about writing. 🙂

Your local library. Librarians know a lot about local writers organizations and groups. Your neighbors may be writing and you don’t even know it. Stop by your local library s circ desk and ask about local writing groups or clubs.
