I first started dipping my pen into the blogging waters back in January of this year. Excited, I designed my page and wrote a post…then I waited and hoped that someone would read this newcomer’s words. To my delight, it’s wasn’t long before a wonderful blogger not only read and liked my piece, she actually commented on it. What a wonderful feeling it was to know that I was now welcome in the WordPress family and the first blogger to open the door to the possibilities of blogging was Aurora.
Aurora’s site, Metal Angel, is full of her writings about her family and her wonderful fantasy stories. She is a young mom, living through the harsh economic times with a husband and wee son. She struggles daily with trying to provide the daily needs of her family and shares her frustration and successes with the rest of us.
Many people look to the older generation for wisdom…I look to the younger generation, women like Aurora, for inspiration. And, she never lets me down. Her life reminds me of my struggles as a single mom and her fantasy works always provide a little escape from the here and now. I just know that when her family duties calm down, she’s going to produce a best seller and I will be proud to say, “I knew her when!”
She is also the reason that I now have a novel in progress. She encouraged me to attend summer camp at NaNoWriMo…for that I will always thank her for I never dreamed of writing a novel before and am amazed that I am now working on revisions of the one I completed in camp!
So, head on over and say Hi to Aurora…she’s a great girl and she’ll welcome you…just like she welcomed this cranky old grandma. Click here and enjoy your visit!
Yours in Writing,
