"Thank you, Brianne, for writing this. I like to pick at things too, namely writing. My brother sent me an article on the difference between an amateur and a professional. So, am I an amateur writer, who picks at writing, or am I a professional, who…"

"What a great idea and a new take on an old tradition. Forget the long lines of people trying to make small talk, while hugging their books as a shield. Let's dance! Glad it worked out for you, Marci, and good luck on your book sales."

Tyra Brumfield commented on the blog post '[What's Next?] Put it in Print'
"As many have mentioned, I do a little of both. After I've written and edited on screen, I'll print the entire manuscript and edit on paper. I usually find even more things to change on the hard copy. Funny how that works."

I think that perhaps might have appeared unseemly. But her store is represented in the anthology, with a piece written by another author. So all is well!

And you are making me so nostalgic for Davis Kidd.

I was in Nashville earlier this fall (used to live there), and stopped into Parnassus, met the manager (have previously met Ann Patchett, one of the owners). And bought several books! Really lovely store. And it is SO nice to know there is a bookstore there. I wrote most of my 1st novel in the cafe at Davis Kidd, and then read there when my second novel released. Was so devastated to hear it had closed.

No idea what it's called here, Tyra but glad to make your acquaintance.  I keep up with a host of blogs about writing, which I highlight on my own each weekend, including She Writes.  What I like about SheWrites are the discussions.

Thanks! And will hope to see you in the Chat.

Tyra,

With apologies for being tardy with my welcome, 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 every Wednesday at 1EST; instructions on how to participate if you haven't done so already are in the "Our Water Cooler Wednesdays" box near the top of the group page.
