Putting on My Writer Hat

writer_hat-rf51ee7016db941f989a33eaf9e1332c0_v9wfy_8byvr_324Like most humans (especially the female ones), I wear many hats in life. Wife. Mother. Daughter. Friend,  Employee. Volunteer. Blogger.  For about a year, I have flirted with the idea of putting on the Writer hat – I have always wanted one, actually.

A tiny book idea is being coaxed into the open where it can mature.   I have incredible friends and family in my corner, and I sincerely appreciate what they have done to encourage me to date.  I can only imagine the gratitude I will express when I sit to write the Acknowledgements part of this book. If all goes well, others beyond my team of supporters will read it.

As this project unfolds, I will be dialing back the number of reviews on this blog… one of the reasons I have not put on my writer hat sooner was because of previous commitments.  I have been a reading fool all year, and  I LOVE getting books from friends, agents and publishers in exchange for honest reviews.  I look forward to getting back to that in the new year.  Until then, I will continue to participate in promo posts, excerpts, guest posts, interviews and author spotlights when possible. From time to time, I will post my thoughts on this writing journey as I make my way from here to there.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for following this blog.  As of today, I have 1,480 subscribers via email, 877 likes on Facebook and 472 followers on Twitter.  I have been wearing this Blogger hat for a year and a half, and it is truly humbling to know that friends, fellow book lovers & kindred spirits  have supported this labor of love.  – kris

  2. What a wonderful addition to your hat collection! I haven’t had mine on in a few months, I think it’s time it gets back into the rotation…

    I look forward to reading your writing updates. Perhaps one day we can exchange our own books with one another! 🙂
