About My Blog
I didn’t just get up one morning and say to myself “I think I’ll start blogging today”! I thought about it for at least a week! So why have I chosen to write one? Does it matter? Writers should write, and not just in their own comfort zones. My comfort zone – though not an easy one to survive in – is writing for children … getting inside their heads, living their lives, seeing and hearing and feeling as they do.
But to blog is to write for adults and I don’t even know if I have an adult voice … I mean other than the how-to articles I write for Creative Writer’s Notebook! Can I be creative in journaling for everyone on the planet to read? Perhaps this is the reason for blogging – at least for my blogging. I need to find that adult voice and speak for myself for a change. We’ve got lots to talk about on this quest – family, music, writing, travel, and oh so much more. Want to join me on the journey? You are welcome to come along.
One last word before we begin – my motto in the realm of writing critique is “first do no harm.” Okay, not original, but still appropriate. So go ahead and make any comments you care to make … I can take it … but play nice!
Excellent idea to blog, Mary, and for the right reasons – in finding your adult voice and in sharing what you’ve found – rather than using this as a platform to talk amongst yourselves and characters as I’ve seen some writers do. Will be happy to share my own pro-found thoughts with you as well … well, as soon as my two grand-girls go back to Ohio and I can finally sit down with my beloved laptop. Vanessa
Thanks, Vanessa. See you in CWG
Sister, I think you may have found your niche! Just promise that you won’t start sending me in invoice once a month to pay for it! LOL
Much success and all my love!
No invoice. Much love, Sis
Mary, great minds think alike, ha! While my (computer geek) son is in town I’ve asked him to help bring me into the new year with a website and blog. It’s still in the works but your wonderful blog has given me inspiration. I look forward to reading more of your writer-ly thoughts. Thanks too, for your help in setting up and visiting the Mount Dora SCWBI (Lake Squibbie) critique group. ~ Kimberlee
As I have not been here for awhile I am delighted that you still have my email address.
This blog is a wonderful idea and a generous gift. Thank you
Enjoyed reading your blog. As I, too, am just getting started, I appreciate the link to my own blog. Maybe now someone will actually read it and leave comments. See you in Miami for SCBWI Florida conference. Jane
