This Writer’s Journey . . .

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!


 Avily Jerome


I met Avily early on in my writing career. Back when I had that 87,000-word novel, my first, and I didn’t know what to do with it, I joined this local writing group. Didn’t know anyone and was scared beyond belief to go there alone, but I braved it. Within a few months in strolls Avily, full of life, super-friendly, and welcoming.

Her love of life radiates from her.

Both starting out in the industry around the same time, we learned a lot together. We even attended our first writing conference together. It was a crazy, scary, exciting adventure, and I was glad to Avily with me.

Thanks, Avily. I’m so glad to have met you along my journey!!

    1. I know, right? Her name is so unique. Flows right off the tongue, doesn’t it? Thanks, Savannah. I’m very blessed to have met (and continue meeting) so many wonderful people on my journey!

  1. I love the name, too. It’s great that you two found each other at such a “scary” time in a writer’s life–the beginning. Lynn, thank you for sharing so many amazing friends with us.
