    default Are you actively promoting your work?

    With all the stuff you write, what are some of the ways you get the word out?
    I am blogging and that is connected to my facebook. My wife and I have a website that we are currently reworking. The original web site was put together as a way to docment our transition to living full time on the road in an RV starting 2013.
    But my wife has taken a job in Michigan working with her family and that plan has been moved back. So I am going to usae the web site to promote my writing and her new business in real estate (appraiser).
    I am also actively looking for writer forums that aren't type A personalities. I have been on the Writer's Forum, but the jury is still out as to their persnicketiness.

    At one time I considered the idea of doing a few zines, but even those have become e-zines on the web. It is becoming more and mor difficult for writers to have control over our work and not risk theft of our material while trying to promote ourselves.

    I don't really promote it yet cause there isn't anything to promote as nothing I've written has really been published. (I did get an honorable mention in a contest though. Just not sure what that's gonna mean. lol)

    lol Yeah, I suppose it means that. What I meant was that I don't know what happens as a result. They give the winners some modest cash prize and I think put the works up in the college library. Not sure if that's just for first-place winners or if an honorable mention is also included.
