THE BUZZZZZZZZZ

Well, I think I like the look of my blog.

I ought to. I’ve spent enough time tweaking it to have written and published a novel.

OK, that’s exaggerating.

But the truth is I feel pressured by all the buzzzzz.

What buzz you might ask?

The literary agent buzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Specifically that all new authors need a presence.

Well, I’m alive and I write everyday, but no one knows what I write or who I am. And why would they? My writing is all on my laptop, safely saved in my Word documents and two flash drives. And I am “solo me o” happily writing in my home office.

So at present, that’s the only presence I have.

And that’s why I started this blog. I need to build a following.

A platform.

A miracle!

Well, that’s not entirely true.

I also need a forum for some of my writing. Lots of thoughts pop into my head and I need to write them somewhere so my brain has room to ruminate on my novels. Most of these thoughts that pop up aren’t appropriate for a chapter in any of my novels, so what else can I do with them? I have to write them and put them somewhere, right?

Voila!

My blog!

I'm hoping things pop in my head often and hoping you pop onto my blog again soon.

Always, Em
