So, I guess this is my first blog. Hope you start coming back after you read, so I'll need a hook-a real good one. Maybe something unoriginal but classic, or something so outlandish you can't help but wonder what else I might say. Hmm, think I'll go with neither; no, here's my hook: It's August 23rd, and I'm sad.
A blog is about sharing oneself with others, and I am writing this today with no one to share this with. Just like my book. I didn't have anyone to write it for but myself. Even the biggest reader in my life was running out of time, and she never got to see it published. My mom did read a rough, rough draft while also very sick-so I guess she sort of got to see it, but truth is, I wrote Into the Forgotten for me. Now it's out, I am terrified, and the most brutally honest person in my life isn't there to tear it apart as the invisible introvert I truly am starts to see if my characters can get some traction in a world I've stayed pretty clear from. But I write for me in the end, and that has to be enough-because dreams are worth having, but passions are worth doing no matter what.
Have a great 8-23 and an even better 24 :)
This is my blog.
