My objective for the Get Known Groove is for the e-zine to be as helpful as possible during rapidly changing times in the industry. These are times when every writer needs to learn to how stand in their own spotlight and produce themselves. The age of writers being discovered is over and the age of 100% responsibility for your writing career is upon us.
However, it's not easy to navigate a rapidly changing playing field, especially when it concerns something you care about as much as your writing career, your reputation, and your future. So I carefully chose columnists I thought could help you keep abreast of all you need to know without overwhelming you.
I'm happy to say that I think this issue demonstrates my intention very well. I was all ready to hit Google to answer several questions in my mind that were all addressed by our contributors in this month's issue.
I was pondering questions like:
What's the best microphone to use with my computer? Kati Neville's article this month, "How to Sound Your Best" shows me where to go to find out.
Which teleconference services should I use? Gregory Kompes' article this month, "Profit from Teleconferencing" has just the suggestions I was looking for.
Should I apply for a grant even if it's the last minute? Gigi Rosenberg's article this month, "Featured Money Magnet, Michele Glazer," suggests that I go ahead and apply anyway.
I know that the Get Known Groove is pointing me in the kinds of directions I want to go in. I hope it's doing the same for you. And if it is, I encourage you to take a few seconds to forward the e-zine to your writing friends.
Make good things happen!
