My blog for my writing updates is: http://authorjamie.livejournal.com/. The other blog on livejournal is my personal blog. Hope this makes more sense. I just keep this blog so that I can keep up with those that still use blogger.
Sorry for the inconvience everyone. I'm moving to LiveJournal. I'm not getting much replies here or much interaction from my readers. So, if you want to continue to read my blog follow me on LiveJournal. I will also be staying with Myspace and so my blog will be there as well. For those of you that actually commented, thank you so much. For those of you that have a blog on here, I will still be around to read your blogs and leave my comments and thoughts, etc.
I have found a critique group to work with on Yahoo Group. They are called The Middle Musers-not sure if that is one word-they are a private group since I'm unable to look them up in the directory and I got an invitation through Verla's Board. I'm glad I got a reply after so many months. So, though I'm not doing any actual writing at the moment due to trying to get my medical coding more completed, I have an A average so far and I'm finally half way through. Trying to kick up the pace, hence not so much writing.
With this new group though I have my first post on the 18th I believe. I'm not sure what I'm going to post, whether it should be something that I'm working on editting like the The Quiet Child, The Haunted Cemetery, or The Real Truth, something completely new. They have a limit of 2,000 words for critiques and the age is from 9-13, I believe that's Middle Grade. I had no idea there is a range for YA. The group is 5 people, now including me makes 6.
I also have a critique partner that I met through Vera's board. So, now I have 2 places, besides you guys that are taking a look at my writing. Wow, things are moving right along with this writing to hopefully publication. I know that it's going to take some time, but I'm ready for it.
I can't say this enough, thank you to those of you that post about your writing experiences and your lives on a daily basis. It keeps me focused and sure to know that writing for myself and eventually publication is something that I want to really do.
I'm thinking where I want my blog to be. I know that I said that I was going to use Blogger exclusively, but it doesn't look as though I have readers since there are not many comments as I have on LJ. I mean I don't want to get rid of Blogger since some writers do use blogger and I keep up with their blogs that way. I seem to have more interaction on LJ and even Myspace. So, for now I'm going to not post on blogger for the time being and just keep LJ and Myspace open. I want to see how the changes go. I might just go with LJ. What do you guys think?
I have decided to make this blog readers only. I don't mean to limit the amount of people that read my blog, but since Blogger is so public I need to be safe. So you are going to have to add me as a friend or send me your email address so that you can read my blog from now on. Sorry for the inconvience.
ETA: LJ friends I will make the blog friends only so you don't have to worry, though you are going to have to help me with how this works. :)
