Debbie and Margot,

Thanks for the advice! I'm brand new to networking for writing and definitely appreciate the tips. I'm also really enjoying reading through your websites!

C.J Poindexter, good for you, mate. I am so happy for you. Writing down life's "difficult stuff" is often a great way to lick it into a manageable size. However, I still advise putting aside that particular story for a while. When you come back to it you will have a more clear perspective.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Carla, I agree with Debbie, the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is a wonderful place to join if you want to write for children. Go to as many of their writing conferences as you can. You will network with other writers, and get to meet and mingle with editors, agents, and published writers.

Another great place is the online list, Children's Writers and Illustrators.. I joined them years ago, when they were very new, and I was new to writing. Several wonderfully talented writers took me under their wing and mentored me. I owe those ladies so much. Today the list has over 3,000 members world wide, and members still help, encourage, and support newcomers to writing, as well as themselves. Many private crit groups have also been formed by the members. Their collective writing and publishing knowledge is awesome!

Welcome, Carla. I write for children also, and it's a fun and exciting place to be. You may want to join the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, which is an excellent organization.

I know what you mean about keeping your writing a secret. I just blogged about that yesterday--how our inner critic prevents us from announcing our dreams to the world.

Best of luck to you!
