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.
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.
Tyra, Welcome to She Writes. If you’re looking for places to connect here, we’d love to have you join us in the Publishing Industry News group and/or in Novelists (Struggling or Not). You can find all the groups through the Community button at the top of your page. Enjoy the site!
