Greetings

Posted on February 18, 2012 at 1:39pm 0 Comments

I'm excited to begin meeting other writers on She Writes.  I am a beginner, working on a memoir depicting a healing journey from incest and abuse. My journey covers the abuse, therapy, various occult groups, and ultimately Christianity. If there are any areas I can help with or share information about, I'm glad to do it.

For today, I'm going to explore some of your blogs, and then do some editing on my book. I'm still figuring out how to do realistic dialogue.  Since my book…

I saw your post on the Memoir Group page and read your first chapter of your book. I must say as uncomfortable as it was to read, I was definitely pulled into the story. I would have to go back and re-read it to even critique it. I too am working on a memoir of abuse, however, mine is more along the lines of emotional abuse and growing up in a broken home. I am very eager to read more of your work and will be keeping an eye out for more. If you get a chance here is the link to my blog on She Writes:  ~Kate's Memoir Journey~

Heather, I wrote you a letter, but I have no idea where it ended up. I hope it gets to you . . . somewhere.  What I didn't mentiion is that I've written a book called, "Miracles, Yours For The Asking." It's based on my spiritual experiences once I turned my life over to Jesus. I always liked the description of my life before I met the Lord. "Being breadwinner for two small children and a house was like being on a flimsy raft in the middle of the ocean during a storm. You're always one step away from destruction." Of course, once you have God in your life, He calms the sea and transforms your raft into a safe ship.

Welcome. As a former member and current group leader, this group has been immeasurably helpful to me. We have monthly online chats in which we share info and ask for advice about submissions. I cannot recommend it enough.

Thought I'd share some resources I've gleaned from SheWrites & Submission Mission:

Sorry I took to long to respond to your friend request, Heather. Pleased to "meet" you.

Hello Heather, Welcome! Thank you for the friend request. Looking forward to connecting with you in the future.

Heather, We're delighted to have you in the novelist group! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. We save the wall for discussion, so please refrain from linking to blog posts there, but do add them in the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread.

And we do a live chat on Fridays at 3EST; instructions on how to participate are in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page.
