I won! I won! (and I didn't even know I had entered!)
I won an award! How cool is that? And it's not even for writing! Well, it kind of is, but not novels — blogs! That kind of fascinates me because I'm a terrible blog writer. Then again, I've tried a few in my past and maybe my friend, Tom, is referring to how different each attempt has been.
I'm hoping to keep up with this blog. I really am. I plan to write what it's like, having my dream come true with "Under the Same Sky", navigating like Alice through the Wonderland of publishing. I"m just probably the most disorganized person around, so while I promise to try, I can't promise to succeed. Your comments are encouraging, though!
So, over here is my writing blog. And right now I'm in the midst of giving away novels by bestselling authors. I think that's pretty great. Not my book, not yet, but these books sitting here beside me look awfully interesting. Check my earlier blog to find the titles of all the books.
Over there is my editing blog. That's where I have to do all the hard work, but work that I consider kind of fun, and definitely meaningful. Over there I try to help writers put a bit of sparkle into their work, giving techniques that I hope will help. And I try to keep them user-friendly, with as little use of grammatical terms as I can mention. Pop on over there if you're looking for some how-to advice. I take requests!
I did have another blog, but it's kind of faded into the background, so I'll skip over that. It was more of a mish mash, which maybe I should do on here.
My next step is to write a Newsletter because lots of people have requested one. So if anyone knows how I can put the little thingies in my newsletter, the "Subscribe Here" doo-dad and the little picture windows that link to facebook and twitter, I'd be REALLY interested in hearing from you!
I guess that's why I won this Versatility Award. A bit of everything. And I guess that's when my disorganization comes in handy. So would you like to contribute? Send me a topic, I'll see what I can do.
Thank you, Tom Kepler!
