Say it with me. I am a writer. I’m just not published.
And write I shall. I need a kicking off point, and this shall be it.
General things about me? I desire greatly to be an editor. My good friend has just written a full-length novel, for which I had the pleasure and honour of editing (see her blog here). I never knew that correcting grammar could be so much fun- but that is probably because it is so much more. It is about understanding the characters’ voices. You really need to get to know them. There is a level of immersion that is necessary for this to happen (though I fear I cannot indulge too much for I must maintain my critical eye).
I suppose it goes without saying that I am a reader too. Fantasy, autobiographies, books of poetry, nonfiction, paranormal romance- you name it. I am obsessed with taking in new information. Once I get a feel for how this blog is going to go, I will likely include book reviews, as well as some of my own work.
That is all for my introduction! I look forward to providing what is hopefully useful information and amusing anecdotes!
