Networking of course!
It's crucial for writers to network--we need TLC from others who think like us.
Before I go on, I should mention Nichole's blog post on networking. She also has some helpful links you can use! Come by and read it when you get a chance.
(you can click on dark orange links below!)
Links for Writers Groups:
ANWA: a wonderful network of LDS mothers who care for each other and nurture one another
Romance Writers of America: Romance Writers of America. It helps hone your interest through networking and support as a writer, especially in the Romance genre.
Links for Networking:
