I inexplicably have posting privileges. Yet another privilege I will have to check at the door. But I'm grateful to whichever administrative overlord granted this.
Are there any writers on here? (I assume yes, but tell me about yourself.) I've been hobby writing for a few years and I have now completed three books of a (planned) five book series. I'm not sure what to do next. I used to be in an online writers' circle for feedback, but it imploded with nastiness and political behaviour. I did get some interesting and useful feedback (e.g. I use far too many speech tags).
Mainly, I write in genres (horror, sci-fi) but usually with feminist-friendly characters (e.g. a good representation of PoC, gay and asexual characters, characters with disabilities). My stuff is nothing amazing or groundbreaking, but I quite like doing it.
So what does one do from here? I've read writer blogs, but there are so many and they're all doom and gloom since the GFC. I've never sent anything to a publisher. I know nothing about blogging or e-publishing. I'm not even really sure what I want to happen.
And, just to be clear, I'm not fishing for anyone to give me feedback or read this pro bono. I'm just interested in what you write and what you do once you've finished, even if you're not sure it's worth publishing.
Would love to hear from you.
PS - I'm in a different time zone so apologies if my replies are late and/or sporadic.
