It funny how I thought that writing was solo thing, because it’s not. Our community reaching out the first of every month is hard proof of that. But it goes deeper, doesn’t it? Every time we learn something new, we blog about it. It’s like we can’t help reaching out and supporting other writers. I’ve come to depend on many of you for your blog posts and your comments. I feel pretty lucky to a part of something so grand.
I look back and realize what I’ve accomplished so far. Heck I took a couple writing courses on fiction. And then tried for an anthology.
Although I thought I knew about writing, I didn’t.
Thanks to blog posts, and books I’ve come a long way. I suppose we all have.
Helping others has become the theme of my blog. I always wondered what content would suit me best and I’m pretty sure I’ve found it. Writing about writing is my go to place. It’s like finding a gold nugget, and screaming about it. Everyone makes their own discoveries in their own time. My nuggets are more for the new writer.
What am I insecure about this month? I’m worried about following my heart and sharing my writing discoveries. I want to help others as I have been helped, am worried about losing followers because I want to change my blog around and promote myself as a writing expert (of sorts). I don’t want to sound like an arrogant know-it-all, but want to sound creditable as I explain basic writing elements and how to use them.
Well there it is. Got any advice for me?
