Olga, just a gentle reminder that in the novelist group (as indicated at the top of the page) we don't post links to blog posts. We try to keep the wall for conversation, and if we allow any links to blog posts, they tend to swamp other conversation, so we just don't allow them. Thanks!

Thanks for the comment on my wall...so glad to meet a fellow late bloomer on She Writes!

Thank you Olga, though I have lived in Japan for years, I am just now wrapping my head around the very complex and layered culture. Makes for very interesting and challenging times, but always something to learn by and grow from.

Hi Olga, I enjoyed your reply to Julie Luek's latest blog post.  I hope you are well, and enjoying your writing.  I am three years in to my 'new' life as a writer now and can only imagine what you must have learned over ten years.  It's always good to hear from others who are 'further down the road' and still hanging on in there.  I love the Steinem quote: 'Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else.' Better get on with it then!

Sounds like a plan! I am on good reads too, so any word you could spread there would be wonderful, and vice versa I'm sure.

Thanks so much Olga! I would be very interested in what you thought of my novel -- if you felt like it was something you would be able to review and spread the word on if you liked it, I would be able to give you an e-copy as a review copy? You can download the first four chapters here if you wanted to taste-test!

Just let me know!
Peace and happy writing!

Niki

Hi

Nice to know another Olga. There's not many of us around. I live in Sydney, Australia. Where are you?

At 5:27am on February 1, 2013, Jenny said…

Hello Olga, thanks for getting back to me - I confess I find this site quite tricky to navigate, and miss things too - I feel like I'm walking in the dark with my hands stretched out in front of me, most of the time!  I'm pleased that my blog made you smile; that's what I hope for it.. Hope your writing is going well.  Love, Jenny
