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!~~~


I met Michelle Sutton back in September 2008. I was attending an ACFW chapter meeting and she was the guest speaker. Social Media was the topic. She has a busy blog—er—a busy FEW blogs and was active on Facebook and Twitter.

She was funny, knowledgeable, and really engaging. I absorbed every word she said. It was then that I jumped in—feet first—with the blogging, Facebook, and Twitter.

What I remember most is how encouraging she was. Patient, too, because I had more than a couple questions to ask since I was such a newbie.

It’s been fun to watch her as her career has begun to take off. She’s written tons of books and it seems like she’s got a new one coming out every time I turn around. LOL. I’m glad our paths crossed. Thanks for your support, Michelle.

  1. Great post, Lynn. I sort of stumbled on Twitter by accident and floundered a bit. I’ve gotten better, but I wish I would’ve had this kind of insight before starting. You’re very lucky! It’s always great to be able to ask questions of the sage ones and know they help because they want to, not out of obligation.

  2. I agree with Ciara- it’s important for us new folks to have people willing to help and encourage us. AND you have been one of those people for me. Thanks, Jillian

  3. I’m so glad you met Michelle in the beginning of what I know will be an illustrious career for you, Lynn. She’s always been kind and giving in the limited discussions we’ve shared. I hope someday to have the honor of meeting her in person. I”m so glad there are great writers out there willing to share with newbies.
