I appeared on the Pikes Peak Writers blog in their Sweet Success feature here. The blog is geared toward writers, with craft and motivational articles. They offer authors the chance to mention their accomplishments to their peers.
If you are an aspiring author, find a group like this where you can pick the brains of those further along the publication path. Published authors find writing groups a safe haven where they can talk craft with people who understand the trials and tribulations of writing fiction. Live in a remote area? There are many national groups with on-line loops, local chapters, and opportunities such as podcast recordings of meeting presentations.
Writing can be a lonely, solitary pursuit. Many groups have grown to offer mutual support. Try volunteering, if you have a little time to spare. I have learned more than I can list from groups like these:
Sisters In Crime (brothers welcome, too)
Mystery Writers of America
Pikes Peak Writers
