Are you a writer, reader, or other industry professional
If a writer, are you published, pre-pubbed, or self-published?
I'm a Reader Only
As a writer, what type of stories do you Write or Read?
I read anything and everything. I have over 200 books waiting on my shelves to be read, yet I will buy more the next time I see them on the shelf at the store!
In my spare time (LOL), I'm a freelance journalist. I write for a variety of publications and will soon be starting my own.
In addition to reading and reporting, I help take care of my grandson when he's not in preschool.
My hobbies are reading, cross stitch, hiking, rockhounding, wildlife photography, camping and getting on my husband's nerves (tee-hee).
Eric and I were married in 2003, a year -- minus one day -- after we began dating. We met when I had to do an article on him for the local newspaper. He had won the Pepsi bottlecap promotion of two tickets to a Britney Spears concert. He chose to take the cash prize, instead, as he didn't want to spend time with a bunch of screaming teens. I can't imagine why!!
I have three children. My oldest son lives in Ohio; my daughter is in Oregon and has a little girl; my youngest son is here in Othello and shares custody of his little boy. I also have four stepchildren and two stepgrandchildren.
A busy life, indeed!!!
My blog has topped 400 hits! Wow!
I haven't been writing my blog for very long, so this is exciting news for me. Now, if I can hit 500, I'll really have reason to celebrate.
Stop by and check it out.
Where has this year gone? I guess when you’re busy time really does fly because mine has certainly taken wing.
WRDF launched in February of 2008 and its membership has grown steadily. I hope that means we are doing something right for our members.
We have some fabulously talented writers among us. I would encourage you to take a little time to visit a couple new pages each week. The photos, videos, blurbs, excerpts, bios, blogs, graphics, and I could go on and on, are super fun and so interesting. No one has an excuse to be bored on this site with so much to read and see.
I hope you’ve kept up with WRDF’S newest features, The Tipping Point Workshops, our contest announcement page, our bookmark giveaway page, and our free reads page. All are great promotional opportunities for writers and great fun for our readers.
Our book discussion club, LOST IN A GOOD BOOK, is going strong. We’ve had good participation and if you haven’t kept up with some of our adventurous discussion comments, you’ve missed the action.
We’ve also launched a new online newsletter, WRDF Online. Be sure to open and read your copy when it comes. You never know what you might be missing.
Lastly, you’ll notice a new WRDFCalendar Tab on your page. What a nice way to keep all our members notified of current and up-coming events. You’ll notice that Fridays are Guest blog days at Between the Lines. Why not take a moment, check the calendar, and reserve a couple of spots for yourself during 2009. You can request your dates at: firstname.lastname@example.org
