This past weekend we had our niece come up to our house for a sleepover. Between having two rugrats under 4 years old in the house for about 36 hours, plus the fact that I haven’t had a lot of time this week to plan blog posts ahead of time, I have nothing mind-blowing for you today.

But since I hate missing a day, I decided to do a quick post about WANA.

What is WANA? WANA came about because of Kristen Lamb, who wrote a book for writers called “We Are Not Alone“. (WANA, get it?) The book is about the community aspect of being a writer, building an author platform, using social media to your advantage, and so on.

From Kristen’s book came an online community, WANA International. Amongst other things the website hosts a place where writers can gather and have serious (or not so serious) discussions with each other, look for help, and just build a circle of friends and confidants. Plus, there are constantly online courses and webcasts going on by experienced authors who want to help out those of us who still don’t know what we’re doing.

If you’re a writer who needs the soft, snugly, warm feeling that comes only from having like-minded people around you, it would be worth your while to check out the book and the site. Go! Go now!
