Well, hello there. Welcome to my first blog. I think it is about time to dive into the century and write a blog, especially being an author and all. So, here I go.
I am approaching this blog in the most unusual way possible for me. That is, you see, I am an extremely organized and plan-driven person. This blog, however, will not be planned out (for those of you in the writing world, I’m being a total panster). This is not to say that I don’t have approximately five million ideas I want to write about, but just that I won’t be scheduling the writing of them or figuring out a methodical outline (as of now, anyway). I will be using this blog as a form of expression and another excuse to write, though. That is what all of my art is about anyway; a means of free expression at the moment I need it and feel the urge to create it.
So, what the heck will I be writing about then? Well, have you seen my posts on social media? That. I LOVE knowing anything about the extras, or behind the scenes of my favorite pieces of media (TV, movies, books, etc.), so I figure I will allow more of me to be seen, since I hope to be a favorite contemporary women’s fiction author of yours someday (wink, wink).
As you may know already, I post about a few main themes; writing status and author related content, Italian culture, artistic expression, relevant travel tidbits, and inspirational/psychological areas. These just happen to be areas included in my debut novel, The Difference, being released in 2020, just FYI. I often want to write much more than allowed on certain platforms, especially Twitter! This is a great way for me to be able to express more through writing, let you see more about me, and to be able to connect with you in a new and different way than just social media.
Thanks to all of you for of the support on my journey so far. I’m excited to see how this blog evolves and I hope you are too. If you have followed me on social media, you have seen me through the writing, editing, revising, and querying stages, right up to my book contract that occurred a week ago with my publisher (more on that soon). Feel free to comment below and share via your social media. I love to hear from followers. Thanks, and catch you soon!
