First, I scribed to Writers’ Digest and The Writer magazines. I read every issue, cover to cover; even the poetry. I read an article about the 101 best websites for writers. I checked out each one. If it had a newsletter, I signed up. If it had a blog, I subscribed to it. If it was on twitter, I followed it. I followed the treads of conversation and wrote witty and creative comments. Then I read an article about the 10 best blogs for writers. I registered for all of them and read every issue.
The magazines recommended the Master of Fine Arts for writing program. It sounded good and I could even take the courses online so I started. It was so much fun, that I started a second one. The magazines also recommended that I write everyday regardless of how much time I had. I needed prompts so I signed up for a couple of websites that provide writing prompts every day. I write
something on each prompt. I started this website where I can post my own stories once I write them. I even started this blog for my followers if I ever get any. Meanwhile, I follow every author that I can on Twitter, Linked In, and Face Book.
I find that I no longer have time to write the story that was burning in my soul but it does not
matter, because I forgot what I wanted to write.
