Today’s challenge is for me to connect with other writers.
In a way I am kind of surprised this is even a challenge. Software developers connect with each other all the time.
“Hey, how do you do this?”
“Did you see the cool new features in the new version of the IDE (integrated development environment)?”
“Try adding this. It should make your query run about four times faster.”
Somehow, it seems like we writers aren’t as eager to connect with each other. Maybe it is because our product is less flashy. Maybe it is a culture thing. Whatever it is, I will make more of an effort to connect with other writers. My blog’s like and follow list is a good place to start. (Thank you all!)
The guidelines of the challenge say there are three kinds of writers I should seek out: friends, fans, and patrons.
As a developer, I know how to find friends and fans. I am not so good finding patrons. The few of those that I have had along the way have come along more by their action than anything I did directly.
This could be my most difficult challenge yet.
