Networking the last of the 3by3 sections (9/9)

Many writers think they can hole up in a den, produce this brilliant book then rush to the bank to collect that big check. Honestly it doesn’t work that way.
Working writers not only constantly writing, they are on talk and radio shows promoting their books. They are at book signings, conferences, in the library, talking to book clubs, working with other writers, working with editors, hiring editors, going to critique groups, looking for advice from mentors and peers. They are networking.
A solitary writer lives in n a vacuum, often to his detriment. To realized there are other writers who experience similar feelings is powerful and freeing
More importantly, networking can get you radio and TV interviews, reviews and possibly connect you with editors and publishers who will take on the daunting task of launching your book. Often writers conferences allow writers to connect with agents and editors who are looking for product and clients. Often other writers will connect and give and introduction to talent coordinators, agents or editors.
Networking is an important part of selling a writers work. Writers whose work is not read, are writing a diary or just a book for themselves. Networking helps get writer’s works out into the world.
