It helped me to write across genres--nonfiction, fiction, magazine articles--to hone my skills. Critique groups and professional organizations for romance and mystery writers are also excellent for learning the business and receiving feedback. Finally, if you can't find an agent or publisher, consider self-publishing and create your own success story--my good track record with an indie title gained the attention of an agent and publisher.(less)
