Think all writers are shy, introverted people busily tapping away in some small room in their home? Think again. Writers need connections with other writers. (They're the only people who understand our joys and sorrows as we celebrate our tiny steps forward -- we finished a draft of our story, yea! -- or backwards -- but I'll have to cut out one of the characters to make the story make sense, ouch.)
Anne Marie Pace talks about how she wrote picture books wrong and other aspects of her writing career plus how she connects with other writers, on the Cynsations blog.
