Since choosing a publisher, Zoe and I have been invited to join a writer’s group. It is a website where the publisher’s list of Authors have a venue to share their questions, comments and thoughts. I have sat back silently reading all the emails that go to and from other Authors without typing a thing. I have never been published before, so I don’t feel I have a lot to contribute to the conversations at hand, but belonging to the group is great for learning. Today an Author asked about his trailer on You Tube and though I know nothing about making a trailer, I felt it was a perfect opportunity to put a word in. I like to read and I am a consumer, so I don’t think it takes expertise in film making to have an opinion. The Author with the trailer got lots of opinions and I almost felt sorry for him as the Authors barraged him with advice. I didn’t agree with all of the comments, but kept this to myself. It felt good to be a part of the process and to wish my fellow Author the best of luck. Taking the first step, I have a sense that I belong to something bigger than my own writing.
