Re: Fandom?

Fandom: Being a fan of a particular book/movie/TV show/comic etc. in such a way that you want to participate and create your own stuff. Could be art, music, stories, cosplay (dressing up in costume), going to conventions to talk about the books/movies/TV shows/comics with other fans, etc.

As for getting noticed, the most important thing is to work on your writing. If it is good enough, it WILL get noticed eventually. Connections are great, but most of the publishing connections I've made were after I became a writer, and the ones I made before becoming a writer helped me see the weaknesses in my work and develop my writing skills, but didn't give me an "in" with any publishers or agents.

There are lots of great writing tips on the Internet written by other authors -- you should check out the fantastic set of articles on Zoe Marriott's blog (http://thezoe-trope.blogspot.ca/p/all-about-writing.html), for instance!

Thanks for writing, and I'm happy to hear you loved SWIFT!
