It’s Valentine’s Day – so I wanted to extend a little lurve. So unless you’ve got the Cava chilling, and and a Barry White LP on the turntable, I want to know what you’re all writing.
One of the things I’ve noticed – and let’s face it, it’s not that hard to see – is that many people online, many people who hang around blogs and forums, are writers – they’re just not yet published. I was one of those people at one point, so I know how you all feel. It sucks since you think that no one takes your writing seriously.
It’s also something that tends to go quietly spoken – for all sorts of reasons, we might not feel comfortable sharing. You might feel it isn’t always appropriate, that the opportunity rarely presents itself. I remember that the whole process – pre-blogosphere – could even feel quite isolating. Let’s face it: writing isn’t the most sociable activity in the world.
There may be many who follow this blog who also never jump in on the comments – well, now’s your chance. Introduce yourself. Say hello. Tell me what you’re working on – what the book’s about, what problems you’re having with it, or what you’re worried about. If you’re a regular, then I want to know too.
I’m genuinely interested in what’s going on out there.
