Rachel Harrie over at Rach Writes. . . is organizing the Second Writers' Platform-Building Crusade and the deadline to join is today. I think this is a fantastic idea and exactly what writers should be doing. We all know that publishing can be a very cutthroat kind of business, but writers need each other. For starters, writers tend to be big readers, so no matter who your audience is, chances are, it includes other writers. It is important that we support each other. We can teach each other a lot and make the journey smoother.
The Crusade is a great opportunity to find other writers and support them by visiting their blogs and spreading the word about all the fantastic stuff they are doing. I am signing up to join and plan to do my part. I already try to support other writers as much as I can, but Rachel is helping to make this task easier by introducing us to each other via the Crusade. Rachel explains it in more detail on her post which you can reach by clicking on the link above.
I hope you will consider joining the Writers' Platform-Building Crusade as well, if you are of the writerly persuasion. I know I am looking forward to all the new connections with the fantastically talented people I am going to meet.
