Your Local library

Your local library is a great resource for writers. Libraries have lots in offer. Starting with access to lots of books and if you want to be a writer you have to be a reader. They also have books on writing to help hone your craft. Libraries also will bring in speakers to give talks to people who are interested. There could be someone who knows about the publishing industry or it could be an author. Most authors are willing to talk about their writing even if the event is supposed to be a signing.

Libraries are a great place to sit and write. They are a quiet place with the main distraction being the shelves of books surrounding the tables. And if you want to read an author’s books before you purchase the book, ask the library to get it for you. This improves their collection because if you enjoy the book someone else visiting the library likely will as well.

Many libraries are willing to provide space for writers’ groups to meet. This is part of supporting the community. And libraries are big supports of communities because that is what they are there for and the communities are also where they get their support. So, show your local library some affection.

About heathersdomain

I'm B. Heather Mantler. I have been a writer for most of my life, with my primary focus being novels. In 2010 I learned how to finish a book through NaNoWriMo and have since used NaNoWriMo sessions (November and Camp) to write my fantasy series The Kings of Proster. I also have three other novels out; Committed to Her Enemy, Chenarcor, Princess or Pirate, and A Thief In Search of a Baby. I've always got another book on the go. You can find me on Twitter under B. Heather Mantler. Also if you have any suggestions, or things you want to me to write about, send me an e-mail at litnlaughter@gmail.com.
