As a novelist, I feel compelled to reach out and share in that obsessive kind of way that we writers have. And what better medium for doing this than a blog? It isn’t limited to the private confines of a diary (God forbid that anyone should ever read MY diary!), but instead aims to connect with the anonymous reader out there in the world at large. Share experiences. Share thoughts on books. Share snippets of novels. Touch a chord. Make you laugh. Make you cringe. Make you want to read more. Join the writer’s inner world and odyssey.
So that’s my aim. To connect with you, whoever’s reading this. Maybe you yourself are an aspiring novelist, or a woman going through a personal crisis, or maybe you’re a man – I don’t have anything against them, honest! In fact I rather like them. Or maybe you’re someone who’s just stumbled across this blog and thought, “Hmm, what’s this about?” And maybe, if I’ve done my job well, I’ll succeed in obeying that universal writer’s law – connect with your reader.
Okay then, so let’s CONNECT!
