If you are like me, where you live may not have an abundance of writers. I'm not talking about the people who dabble in writing when they are bored or whatever, but people who have a passion for writing, stories to be told, and the desire to write. Granted there is a hope by many of us to get published. For those of you who have that desire, the encouraging thing is, according to Mette Ivie Harrison and Rick Walton, neither of them could think of someone who kept at it that didn't get published.
But in the meantime?
We keep writing, we keep revising, because it's our love.
That's where I think the blogging community comes in.
Yes, a writer's blog is a platform, but more than that, a writer's blog is a network.
Nope, it's a neighborhood.
In this neighborhood, we get it. We write because we can't not write.
I moved into this neighborhood almost a month ago, and I have to say, it's the quickest welcome I've ever had. I found out there are lots of people like me, who don't think it's at all strange to stay up late to write, to jot down ideas in random places, to use acronyms like WIP and MC.
So, to those of you who have read my blog, followed, commented, or just stopped by to say hi, thanks for welcoming me to the neighborhood.
I plan on staying for a long, long time.
