Welcome, dear readers, welcome.
My name is Ally. I am a writer. I am also someone who likes reading books. I see, while browsing around, that many writers have blogs where they offer writerly advice, post funny things, and/or display general penmonkey shenanigans.
I am, as of now, an unpublished author. So, following in the footsteps of my favorite authors, I’m starting a blog. Partially, it is to show those in PUBLISHING that I exist.
But here’s the real reason. Many writers are asked about how they first got published. What they did. What happened. What exact shade of red Bic pen did they use? You know, that sort of thing. Well, as we know, memories twist and change over time and some writers will just admit that they don’t really remember. But I’m here to (hopefully) chronicle my journey from unpublished to published on this big tumultuous cauldron of awesome (filled with geeks, fandoms, and shippers) we call the Internet.
So, for all you who care, I am here and I am waving my arms. So hello.
I think the best way to end this post is with some of the greatest quotes from the greatest of people in existence:
Live long and prosper. May the force be with you. We’re going to need a bigger boat. Stay classy, San Diego. Mummies…pygmies…really big bugs. And Welcome to Night Vale.
(Props to anyone who knows the last two)
