Get out to events to meet people. Cool people. People who write. People who don't write. Just meet people. Don't even talk about style writing. Just meet. Show your personality. Let them see you "the person" and not you "the writer." Aren't in a location you can easily meet all these industry folks face-to-face? Reach out via social media or email. There are more people out there willing to listen and help than you think. Just don't be annoying or overbearing. Or send your music. No one wants to hear your demo, bud. Sorry.
