Well, for the sake of our time, I'll only mention my recent thoughts. I've been a writer since I was 11 and over the years I progressed drastically. Since, I've taken several writing classes and poetry classes to sort of "grow" as a writer but I've only started my first WIP novel last year after attempting one several years before. I've self published two short stories on smashwords and I've been marketing myself on Facebook, but what else should I be doing? I know that when I finish my novel, I going to send queary letters and submit manuscripts to agents and publishers via email, but that is then- what should I do now besides write my WIP?
