Dancing On the High Wire

I have no idea if anyone not a writer has an interest in this http://madgeniusclub.blogspot.com/ but many of you are readers, and perhaps it would be of interest to take a look at my road to publication. It is neither unusual nor unusually difficult. It would, however, have been a total shock to me when I started out. It would have been an even greater shock to me when I was "just" a reader.

Writing is part obsession -- possibly mental illness -- and part vocation. A writing career is part persistence, part luck and part -- I hope -- craft and art. I blog on Wednesdays (after recent adjustments) and my mind -- you'll be shocked -- often runs to strange things. My co-bloggers are usually saner, more reliable and always interesting.

Anyway, if anyone is interested, there is a peek behind the curtain of the few, the proud, the almost completely insane.

Wonderful site.

I just hope you'd never say that your co-bloggers here are usually saner, more reliable and always interesting.

Sarah, you are the sane one of our group. We keep telling you that. As for your mind running to strange things, that's what makes you such a great writer. But you are right. Being a writer is a combination of persistence, luck, craft and art. Of course, it doesn't help to be, as I am learning, more stubborn than logical when it comes to our craft.

But Eric... uh. Will you settle for saner, reliable and interesting 99% of the time, even when I disagree?

A woman's got to say what a woman's got to say.
