“Once writing has become your major vice and greatest pleasure only death can stop it.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

As I leap into the abyss of creating a writer’s platform I want to give a shout-out to the many fearless writer’s whose blogs I have been silently stalking  following these past few months. The list is growing but for now you can find some of  their names and addresses by clicking on my Writers Helping Writers page.  I’ve absorbed their advice and thoughts about blogging, tweeting, the craft of writing, and the changing times of publishing.  Now it’s time to put what I’m learning into practice including weighing in on their sites with some comments and letting them all know how much I appreciate the time they give.

The writing community is a giving, sharing, hand-holding group of people and an inspiration to jump in and be a part of this evolving work-in-progress.

Staying in a writing frame of mind isn’t always easy, but what can you do, when you don’t have a choice. If you’re a writer you’ll know what I mean.

I invite you to stay with me as I share thoughts on what I learn from others, and what I learn about myself in this odyssey called writing. Oh, and along the way I’ll be finishing my manuscript. (public promise to self)

  1. The writers are now approaching the starting gate. The last writer has entered the gate. The flag is up. And there they go! Chris Wenzel is leading the pack at the first turn …

  2. Chris,
    I so agree about the generosity of the writing community. It will be great to follow the journey via your blog; you also become part of the generosity in sharing what happens along the way to publishing your novel.
    Love the Hemingway quote too … it really explains the writer’s soul.
    Cheers,
    Melissa
