Wow, the first post of what I hope will become a raging monster of writers and readers and books and awesomeness. EEP 🙂
My name is Lisa Taylor; avid reader, aspiring writer, lover of stories and all things written. After much thinking and planning and procrastinating, I finally have built my writing blog, dubbed Writer’s Block Party!!
The idea is this; anything I might hear if I really were to go to a giant party of writers and avid readers goes on this blog. For a more detailed list of things I will post here, see the “About Us” page. I say “About Us” instead of “About Me” because this isn’t just my blog. Sure I write it and maintain it, but the content of this blog will come from all kinds of sources; writers, readers, publishers, zombies…well, hopefully not zombies…but you get the idea!
I won’t waste your time talking about myself. If you are interested in my writing career or personal history, visit the page above called “My Published Work.” That will take you to my author home page, another website I maintain. You can also follow me on twitter (you will find the button to your right).
So let’s get this party started! My first post (after this one, of course!) will be an author interview! These, I hope, will be common on this blog, as one of my main goals is to help unknown but deserving authors get their names out there! The first post will be my own interview. Now no scoffing! I’m not being conceited! Being a new blog, I want to make sure everything goes over well and the response to the post and its style is positive. If there needs to be any improvements, I don’t want to find out when I post for other people! That’d be awful and I’d have to bury my head in shame for being totally unprepared! :S
SO…that’s the deal. If you ever have anything to say, feel free to leave comments and/or ratings! We love ratings 🙂 Or, if you’d rather the whole world didn’t see your post, hover your mouse over the “Contact Me” tab and choose the appropriate option.
So tell your friends, tweet to your tweeps and facebook your…facebookers. Tell them about this awesome new writing blog. What better of a place to find great new books to read? Too broke (or cheap) to buy a Christmas present for your friends? Well, instead of money, you could slip a piece of paper into their card with a very important link written on it…just sayin.
