Back in the day (six months ago), I launched this blog as a way to get on the radar as a writer. Logically, then, I started by mostly writing about what I was doing, which was exactly that—mostly writing.
Trouble is, if you write mostly about writing, your readers will mostly be other writers. Whom I love of course (especially if they properly use the word “whom”)—I couldn’t live and breathe without the encouragement and expertise of the amazing writers I know. Yet, there’s a wider world out there beyond the craft—the stuff we’re writing about.
I write about the things I care about, so this blog should also reflect that. In the weeks to come, along with continued entries about the craft of writing, you’ll also see entries about issues that are riveting to me:
- The environment
- Women’s rights
- And who knows what else
These things are all a part of the research I’m pouring into the writing of my second book. It may seem like a mish-mash of content, but the unifying force will be me. Which is what I love about blogs—they can be flat-out whatever the originator wants them to be. So I call dibs on being myself and writing what’s on my mind.
Hope you’ll come on board for the journey.
