I've met the most amazing people, corresponded with published authors, and even communicated directly with a few literary agents and editors. It truly has changed my life.
This picture to the left is one I may use come April. I'll be keeping the pink hair up for the rest of the month to support my good friends Lisa and Laura in the release of their debut novel, Liar Society. I blogged about it earlier this week.
There's not really a whole lot else to say. Thank you all. Thank you anyone who reads this blog, but especially those who follow and comment. Interacting with other writers has made a huge difference in my life, and has completely turned my writing career around. A year and a day ago I was about to give up. Now I have a critique group, a viable novel (almost), a query that wins contests, and 551 of the best friends in the world.
I won't go on any longer, but I'll try to link you to a couple of the best posts I've written over these last months:
A Goodbye to Nathan Bransford as he Left Agenting.
SPEAKING Up for Laurie Halse Anderson.
Comparing Writing to a Waterpark.
Sometimes it is a Matter of Life and Death.
Interview with Andrew Smith.
A Blogger's Manifesto.
Interview with Bryan Russell.
Anyway. There's no way you're going to have time to read all that. But that's okay. I heart you all like slugs love mud. Let me know if I forgot about any of my best posts.
Thanks! Have a great day, and a great weekend!
