Good News After a Long Absence

Lots of news after a long absence!

Good News Item #1
Hooray! I've finally recovered from Poison Sumac/Ivy. Neither the Doctor nor I am certain which it was, but it was enough to make me want to live in a sterile bubble for the rest of my life. The cure was almost as bad as the itching and I have learned that warnings about side effects are not to be ignored.

Good News Item #2
I won a copy of the 2012 Guide to Literary Agents from Chuck Sambuchino by commenting on his blog! Be sure to check out his blog/website as it is a great source for current and up-to-date information on agents and publishers. Thanks for picking me, Chuck.

Good News Item #3
The following is an excerpt from Rachelle Gardner's Website:
  (However, the emphasis is my own. It gives me hope as a literary late-bloomer.)

One of the reasons your lifelong penchant for writing is irrelevant is because
plenty of wonderful, talented authors didn’t get published until later in life. Richard Adams published Watership Down when in his fifties. Laura Ingalls Wilder didn’t publish the Little House books until her sixties. Henry Miller was 44 when his first novel was published, Raymond Chandler 51. And don’t forget one of my favorites, Frank McCourt, didn’t publish Angela’s Ashes until he was 66.

Wonderful website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

Thank you for the kind words. I would suggest looking for some Meetup groups in your area. Just google Meetup with your city name. There are groups for every kind of interest. Good luck.
