One of the first links that I ever added to the right side of this thing was to Gabriel Novo. He is the Cuban Nomad.
He's doing the same thing I am -- working had to become a published writer. He said some nice things about me in a post of other writer blogs that he reads. He's right. There are a boatload of aspiring authors out there, but it helps to find others to which you relate. That's why I liked his blog as soon I found him from the comments section of another writer.
So, thanks, Gabriel. And those of you aren't Gabriel, go check him out.
