So I’m Studying to be a Writer

Actually, I’ve been writing for–well, let’s just say a long time now. And I’ve written several novels, articles, poems… this is not the problem.

My creativity level is up on the roof, ideas are like leaves on a tree, energy is pretty much all over the galaxy. I write a lot, every single day. I read, too; subscribe to lots of blogs & feeds about writing and being creative. I have a Twitter, Facebook author page, I know HTML and until recently had a very boring – if pretty – website that wasn’t updated very often. Now that URL leads to one of my blogs – the one that’s most in flux lately. Don’t worry, I’ll figure it out.

But I have no idea where to start the whole process of getting published. That’s what comes next, right? Also, what about the whole online presence thing? This seems like a full-time job in and of itself. But it seems I have to do this, in order to be taken seriously.

So I’m studying, as I said up at the top there. Here are a few links, mostly at Michael Hyatt:
