Feature an Follow #17

Q: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn’t know before about the publishing industry?

My answer is pretty similar to a lot of responses, so not much is unique here. I have learned a lot more about the publishing industry, which was my initial goal as a book blogger. I started this blog as a way to connect with other bookish people, but also to put my thoughts and posts out there as a writer.  

As a book blogger I've learned how to obtain a lot of ARC's and to always keep my Kindle fed! I've made some good booky friends through Goodreads, too.

As a writer, I've learned a lot about what people seem to respond to, what bloggers (in general, everyone's tastes are different) absolutely love, absolutely hate, and honest opinions about what works in a good story and what doesn't.

 I've learned that having a semi-public forum to talk about non-book issues has been invaluable for me. Even if I'm the only one who sees it. Sometimes, you need a place to sound off, and because of different issues, I can't always do that on Facebook or other places. 

I've learned that fiction can happen in small bites. Following #flashfiction or other memes like #fridayflash have given me the hope, courage and motivation that stories don't need to be giant epics, and that a story can happen in small sentences, and those sentences can either stand alone or link together to form something bigger. Kind of like knitting. =) 

Hit me up on Goodreads or Twitter, I'm always happy to meet new friends!

So cold

I have never been this cold before, inside and out. It's hard to think, it's hard to process a thought. There's no physical heat...
