I suppose I must start with an introduction, although like many writers, I prefer to jump to the good stuff. How do you do? My name is Angie, and I’m starting a blog.
Good, we got past the awkward bit.
You know when your head is full of words, but you’re not a big talker? Of course you do, some of you. I’ve spent years of my life buried in books, and that love of words very quickly evolved to writing them down myself. In the past decade since graduating college with a uselessly exciting degree in English Literature, I’ve been indulging in what I used to think I could never do — writing stories. I’ve been researching and practicing the art of writing like a reader, and for a reader. In other words — for myself.
I write a lot, and I think about writing a lot. I’ve written two (as-yet, unpublished) novels, as well as some short stories and a fat folder full of many unfinished bits of starts and ideas. While querying my work, I go a little nuts, hence a blog is born. Here I will talk about books and writing (and frankly, whatever else catches my fancy and runs off with it), and hopefully, in time, generate some discussions!
I’m awfully pleased to meet you.
