Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers.
I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!
It’s pretty interesting how Lori and I crossed paths. Total God thing, you know? I get this random email asking about writing. Somehow, she tracked me down when she moved to Arizona. She’d decided to take the next step in writing and sought out some fellow writers.
I happened to respond and since then, I count her as a very close friend. Both in relation to writing and non-writing!
Early in our friendship, we embarked on a getaway out to California to attend a small writer’s conference. The four-hour journey allowed tons of time to get to know one another.
Lori’s got a fantastic story, but one thing that stood out to me during that time is her ability to see into things. What I mean is, she can take a concept, movie, song…whatever…and find a deeper meaning behind it.
It’s freakishly amazing. You should head over to Dry Ground. That’s her blog. Click on the LESSONS I LEARNED WHILE READING A VAMPIRE SAGA on the right column and you’ll see what I mean.
Though she’s moved away from Arizona, we still stay in close, For that I’m grateful.
I can only wait until the day we meet again. Thanks, Lori, for stepping along side me during this crazy, awesome, scary, fun road to publication.
