I have been writing my whole life.
From a little girl with Diaries, to my dear Blog. I have written newsletters, proof for marketing writers, and have always loved writing letters.
For me the words flow better on paper than through my lips. I can't always say what I mean unless I am writing it. On print, the thoughts come out, uninterrupted and more how I mean to say what I mean.
I am a reader. I escaped to storybooks as soon as I could read. The library was my friend. Everything about the massive old buildings with the hundreds of books enticed me. I loved every minute spent in the library. I still do.
I know a few real writers.
I have blogged recently about one of them. My High School Club Sister, Sherri Wood Emmons and her two wonderful novels ("Prayers & Lies", and "The Sometimes Daughter"). Her second one is about to be release to the general public and I do not doubt that it will be just as successful if not more so.
A few months back, Sherri asked me to send her a review of some favorite books. I gladly did, and to my surprise, she connected me with "Just Women", magazine, and submitted my reviews. They wanted to use them and printed in their Fall issue a full page! I can not tell you how honored and thrilled I am! And I actually got paid for it!!!
To my dear Bloggland friend Linda (over at Over The Fence) is it this wonderful every time you write in your column? How exhilarating!
