I took an online RWA class on how to self-promote nearly a year ago. I met so many wonderful writers in that community forum and became friends with them on Facebook and Twitter. These are people I've never met in person, and yet I feel sympathetic when their kids are sick, laugh when they have a crazy day, and cheer when they announce the birth of a new book! By and large, it is a very supportive group. When I saw this blog post about "real" writers, in light of my epiphany yesterday, I knew I had to share it. Apparently, the universe was not done propping me up yet!
