You all have probably been wondering why I’ve been talking so much about my family and my home life this week. The answer is simple. I want you to know me, how I write and just what my influences are in my writing world. As you can tell so far, some days are great while others are less than stellar.
The reasons are many and I could go on all day about the importance of why. But for those curious few, I know I need to connect with my readers, be they other authors or fans. Being a writer is just so exotic to some people and it’s taken me a while to figure out why. They think the lifestyle is always rosy with wonderful things happening all the time. Those same people also think if they were rich or maybe a movie star, things would be different.
They have one part correct...life would be different...but certainly not like they thought. LOL!
My point is that I am just like every other person. I have wants and needs and desires. I have hopes and dreams, which need to be met or fulfilled. I take showers and put my pants on the same way as everyone else. I am extremely approachable and if something is going on where I don’t want to be around people, I will remove myself from the situation.
I have foibles and get things wrong. Most of the time I am lucky and get it right. When I do get it wrong, I’ll admit it and try to fix it. Sometimes, things can’t be fixed and I’m grown-up enough to know and understand this fact. Yes, there are those in this world who don’t like me and while I don’t understand this, I can accept it.
I am not a mysterious person but if there is something, I don’t want you to know, I won’t tell you. There are some aspects of my life meant to be private and I’ll be the first to let you know if you overstep. Scary fans creep most people out and I have my share of scary fan stories to share should the subject ever come up.
Why am I doing all this? True, I want you to purchase and read my books but I’m also a human being to needs to connect with people. I love connecting with my readers and fans and fellow authors. So now, I’m asking for a little help from you.
Let me know if it’s too much or too little. Let me know if you want more about writing and less about me or suggest a better balance. Most days, I just write about the first thing that pops into my head unless I’m going on vacation and need to plan it out a little better. Most of those days, I will have a blog column related to a certain aspect of writing as I always have those articles ready for inclusion. I will more than likely be including more in the realm of science articles since I’ve been trending toward more science fiction romance here in the future.
I’m anxiously waiting to hear from you all just, what you expect to see in this blog from me.
See you all tomorrow!
