Thanks for reading 'Tales', Valerie - I'm envious of the Carnaby Street dresses your mother brought home for you, mine just gawped in disbelief! As to my experience with Zouche - mostly gratitude, I think. I haven't done any networking there, just fawning over the 'likes'!
Hi Valerie. Thanks for the Friend connection! I'm just getting my feet wet here on She Writes, learning how to dance around the world of book-promoting and writing. Suffice it to say as regards writing, I am a late bloomer though my mother had always been urging me to write. She loved my letters over the years :-) It took my experience as a full-time Care Bear to try my hand at writing. Actually, my book came from my pages of journaling that kept me sane while caring for my mother. I will check out your site and look forward to more communication.
Valerie, so glad you're liking Thriller Thursdays! I've actually finally moved from Blogger to Wordpress. I know you had some problems commenting at Blogger, so hopefully this will fix the problem. http://stacygreenauthor.com/ is the new blog address.
I wanted to perosnally Thank You for joining my group Blooming late!
I saw your blog in your profile and must say it looks very professionally done and is a must for writers I would think!
Please take some time to introduce yourself to the group in the Kick It Off discussion and then list that great blog as well as the boo you are in, in our pages section to the left of the groups main page.
I hope you find a publisher soon and good luck with all your writing pursuits!
We have a wonderfully divers and unique group of women in various stages of the writing journey that are a real source os support, encouragement and inspirations for writiners. I hope you have found yyour writing home with us.
Thanks for writing me back. Yes, summer has been busy. I've tried to set a writing schedule for myself and for the most part, been diligent in sticking to it. I've kind of put the brakes on responding to a lot of posts, social media, and blogs, simply because it's too much to add onto my schedule if I going to stay on track. I'm spending 2-3 hours after work (6-9) writing and up to 8 on the weekends. My husband says the house looks like a homeless person lives here. My cats on the other hand are much more tolerant in regards to the mess!
I wish we lived closer. I'd love to be able to be involved in a smaller women's group. Between work and the solitude of writing, I don't have the opportunity to spend much time with like minded people. I really would love to go to the Colonyhouse, but wasn't sure how others would react to a middle aged woman who is working on a first novel(actually, I'm closer to 50). I would however like to spend a few days at the Silva Beach Hotel. Maybe when I start on my first round of revisions on my first draft I'll take a trip up to the coast. Willamette Writers is a good group, but I've mainly attended meetings to gain some perspective on marketing and social media.
I'd love to read your book. Is it available on Amazon?
Vogler's book was recommended to me by my writing coach. Truth be told, it appears to be a little dated. I'll try reading The Heroine's Journey.
Well, keep in touch and thanks for connecting. Do you have a website?
