Okay, so here I am…
An historical romance writer starting a blog/website to promote myself as an aspiring novelist.
In our constantly advancing technological age, almost everything we do or aspire to do has some connection to electronic media. This is especially true for writers. If we want to be known, if we want our name and our work to be at the forefront of awareness, we must have a web presence. We must be savvy, smart and selective in how we put ourselves out there for the world to see. We must represent the best of our work and hopefully snag the interest of fellow writers, potential readers, and agents and editors in the business.
It’s a lot to think about (and stress over) when you are a natural introvert, as most writers are, somewhat self-critical, as I am, and determined not to let too many distractions blur your vision of the true goal; WRITING.
My intention for this site is very plainly to write about writing. The craft, the community. The thrilling rises, staggering potholes and personal little demons encountered on the path to publication. This will likely at times include comments about my adorable, sensitive and often fearless children and their father, a construction worker turned full-time student.
I am an optimist and an idealist who believes in the power of positive thinking and I try to live by the law that says what you focus on with your energy and intention is what you create.
Here, my attention will be devoted to creating a universe for myself as a Writer… and everything that goes into making it a brilliant and lovely place to be.
