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?


My blog!

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

Always, Em
