Soliciting Reader Readers

For me, the 2011-2012 school year began again today. I spent the majority of my day pruning my email box. Wooh! What you missed out on!

It’s been a strange news day in Oslo. Awaiting more details.


I have been keeping busy working on writing for the Clarion Write-a-thon. And I’ve been thinking about ways that I can improve my writing motivation. What I think I’ll be doing is looking for readers that might want to read my work as someone who enjoys the work, rather than someone who is helping me fix the work.

Don’t get me wrong. I want to have readers who help me fix my work, and I’ll still be chatting with writers. But I need some folks who would read my work for fun, and ask me questions about content and story. So, if this sounds like you, just let me know. I’m working on how I’m going to get this set up. First, though, I need to see if I can interest anyone in the actual reading.

This is just reading. You don’t need any kind of expertise, just a desire to read some Klarion books. Let me know if this sounds like you.


Hope to finish my Norway posts this weekend, and get some pictures up. We’ll see. I have four more writing hours to pay the piper in order to get caught up from all my travel antics.
