So… I finally broke down and started a blog. Why, you ask? Because blogs have been good to me. Really good.
Have you ever met a weird kid who scribbles stories on whatever’s handy? I’m talking notebooks, napkins, gum wrappers, sometimes even the inside hemline of her jeans? Yeah, I was that kid. But my friendly neighborhood bloggers and their awesome communities have helped turn me into a fairly respectable writerly type, if I do say so myself. When I didn’t know how to write a query or format a manuscript or, as I later found out, edit a manuscript into a book worth reading, where did I turn? Blogs. I even connected with my fantabulous agent Adriann through a blog contest run by my equally fantabulous agency sister Mindy and her pals R.C. and MarcyKate.
Bottom line: I’m not an expert. Not by a long shot. But this little slice of the Internet is my attempt to give back and hopefully have loads of fun while keeping the great Circle of (writer) Life going. *cue the lion cub*
