Thank you for your great message and for connecting. I smile every time I open your wonderful Duck Pond Epiphany! It was such a pleasure meeting you in Berkeley at the SWP gathering. Your graciousness, generosity and kind-heartedness during our "adventure" (ahem :)) stay with me. Thank you for being you and all the gifts you bring to the world. I look forward to connecting with you on twitter and beyond ...
Wonderful congratulations again on your beautiful book!
Hi Tracey, thanks for friending, where I am? (that's a good one) I am a newbie to fiction, having only written nonfiction, grad school stuff, but that's why I'm here. I decided to quit my doc program in education and write about my work in a more creative way
- after reading some quantum physics I had an epiphany about how innate intelligence, what we know when we're born, is described the same way as the foundation of the disciplines,math, science, etc., for ex., the laws of physics, laws of the universe - all these are based on the concept of symmetry, which is defined with terms like equality, unity and beauty ! It demands that I write about it with these terms in mind, so I've got a daunting task set out for myself but I am here enjoying the generosity of all the caring ladies here that I can learn from.
Oh, and I am also 60, and never knew it could be OK!
Thanks for the friend request, Tracey. I'm glad to connect with you. I'm a short story writer who's currently trying to make the leap into novel writing. My short stories have been published in commercial and literary magazines, but the novel is still a work in progress. It's an upmarket commercial novel that I hope will be popular with book clubs.
Hi Tracey, so nice to connect with you! I write suspense thrillers, paranormal romance and some paranormal fantasy. I recently joined a writers critiques group in my town and submitted a short story to a magazine. I also received my first rejection letter today. Haha...it's okay, this means I'm now officially an author. I'm not in the least discouraged by it, but encouraged to write more and sharpen my skills.
Hi Tracey, thanks for connecting. I have a completed manuscript, The Sheep Walker, and am 2/3 through the draft of the sequel. I'm also writing short stories and just placed one in Foliate Oak Literary Magazine. (All this info is on my website sydneyavey.com) You mentioned SFWC...I went to UC Berkeley, and this summer I'm traveling to the mecca of WCs, the Iowa Summer Writing Festival, but for some reason I've felt intimated by SFWC...and I know nothing about it! Go figure. I've been to Write on the Sound in Edmonds, WA and loved it.
Hi Tracey- I feel the exact same way-- where would we writers -- the world -- be without yoga! I am facilitating a Writing & Yoga Workshop on the Oregon Coast (in Astoria) the same weekend as the PNWA Conference so, unfortunately I won't be there. I will be posting soon on SheWrites about this 2013 summer Writing & Yoga Workshops in the PNW if you are interested please visit: http://www.stephaniereneedossantos.com/yoga-writing-workshop/ . I would love to meet up with you at some point. Where do you practice yoga? What styles? Congrats on your upcoming book too! Let us be in touch.
>Having thoroughly enjoyed "The Wedsnesday Sisters"imagine my delight when Krissa at SWP referred me to you.I'd like to do a "1st Books" post. May we talk?
Thanks for the nice words on The Wednesday Sisters, Tracey. Who and how I host on 1st Books is explained posts on the first books home page, at www.megwaiteclayton.com/1stbooks. I'm booked through the summer, and then will be on haitus as I tour for The Wednesday Daughters, but if you have a new book releasing in the fall or later, have a look. And thanks for your interest.
Welcome to the novelist group, Tracy. If you haven’t done so already, 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.
We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.
