The longer I teach, read, write, and speak, the more I understand what publicity really means. When I first started as a writer, I was shy and thought publicity was for those “other” people who were outgoing, or who were already well known. Now I understand–it means that we simply share our passion with others so they can know about it, about us, and what we have to say. It means sharing with as many people as possible our message.
Our work benefits others–that’s the simple way to think about it, and we are all connected–even more now on the web.
I hope you can join us today to have a great discussion on this important topic!
I wish I could join you for this, Linda Joy. I will most definitely be downloading the audio to listen to later though. Thank you for all you do to help writers.
