I promised you something big and here it is:
It’s the birth of a new writing blog created by a group of people I met a year ago and enjoy being around. The core members of my writing group got together in January and decided it was high time we created a group blog. We thought it would help to keep us honest (in other words, keep us writing) and get our creative juices flowing. The six of us have been meeting every couple of weeks and working on what our goals for it were, where we see it leading us, and generally hoping to pay-it-forward the help and knowledge we receive on our journeys to becoming published authors.
Writing can be a very rewarding hobby, or profession. It is cathartic in so many ways. Our focus is on the craft. Each one of the members of Twisted Writers is at a different level of experience and expertise. Our ages and identities are so wonderfully varied that you will get a wide range of views between the lot of us. We are really excited about this new venture, and we look forward to future plans in the works already. We talked today about doing guest posts in a month or so once we get the blog running and an audience established. We, as a group, look forward to showcasing our works, as well as other writers we think you might be interested in. If you have any questions about anything we will gladly answer them to the best of our ability. And, if you would be so kind as to leave comments, we would appreciate it. This is for you as much as for us.
Now, for the extra special bonus. Yours truly has written the very first post. Well, not counting the spoiler post. One of the things you are going to notice right away is that I am going by my nickname. This is because it was pointed out to me by two different people the very same week that there is a well-known author out there by the name of Jessica Scott as well. Who knew? I did toy with the idea of a pen name but, well, most authors end up revealing themselves eventually so I may as well stick with being myself. Besides, I like my name despite sharing it and the love of writing with another writer. But it is very funny. I will continue to post here through my personal blog as well.
So, go and check out the new blog and bookmark it. My scheduled posting days are every Monday. And, as the special cherry on top, AJ Prince over at For Love Of blog will be posting interviews for each one of us Twisted Writers this week on the days we post. Make sure you check those out, too. And please subscribe to us. That way you won’t have to be online everyday. You can get the posts through email.
That’s it. That’s the big news! Hope you get as excited as we are.
