I’ve “met” a number of new people while blogging this last year. Last week I got to see one of these friends in person.
It was so satisfying to talk with someone going through publication at the same time I am! We had notes to compare on publishing houses, the editing process (Rosslyn’s editor, for example, sent her a bound copy of her manuscript peppered with comments and decorated with daubs of paint [her editor’s daughter’s contribution]), writing historical fiction, cover art, author questionnaires — everything, really.
There was no need to define terms. No worries about boring someone with too much writing talk. We understood each other immediately, and it was lovely.
Have any of you made real connections with other bloggers? I’d love to hear about your experiences.
Don’t forget to come back Sunday, September 5 for Denise Jaden’s LOSING FAITH blog tour and giveaway.
