Novel Racers

I'm not a 'joiner' usually, but this is the exception to that rule. I've just been accepted as a member of a really cool group of writers based in England, the Novel Racers. You can read my introductory post here.

'Tis very lovely to have you with us... love the photo of the waterfall . Feeling all envious now - what a gorgeous part of the world!

It's a pleasure to have you, Liane. Welcome to the race.

The bio was interesting and I understand why you are a writer; you can write.

Only the brave ever achieve anything worthwhile and to quit the now lucrative job of teaching high school children a foreign language such as English was indeed a brave move.

I am looking forward to your novels and surely the contract-writers at Dorchester read your blog and must realize they are keeping good fans waiting :)

Hi Liane. Glad you've let the Novel Racers be an exception to the rule and joined us.
Wonderful photos:))

Yoo hoo. Another Novel Racer racing through. Glad to make your acquaintance.

Lane said...

Hi Liane
You've been meme'd.

I'm with aka_lol -- fearless is good. Okay, so maybe not fearless, but brave -- bravery is often confused with crazy.

I think you have a voice of reason and insight -- it's a gift. Some people come from a "don't touch" and "you can't do that" mentality and it's hard for them to figure how it's reasonable to walk away from a honorable and paying job, but I'm so glad you did and can't wait for your books.

Was that a run on sentence?

If you miss your old job, you can go ahead and make corrections.

BTW -- If you are crazy, that's just par for the course. Throw in, "lives on a little island" -- totally authorific.

Jen, thanks for the welcome, and for visiting my blog. Yes, it's beautiful here.

b.e. sanderson, thank you. It's a pleasure to be with the Racers.

aka_lol, you are very kind. A fan! I have a fan! Btw, did you do a stint teaching English by any chance? It's a teacher joke that English is a foreign language to many of our students.

Lane, graeme k talboys, thank you for visiting. I'm looking forward to the race.

Hm. Meme'd, lane? Let me go see.

Hi, Kim. I've been called both brave and crazy. Probably a bit of both. And you're right, it's almost expected of authors. Thanks for the encouraging words. Reason and insight, huh? Try telling that to my mother...

And I most certainly do not miss my old job, so there'll be no red pens around here.

No, never did teach but I have been accused of speaking the language like it's my second language, and strangely, it's my only language :)

aka_lol, surely you jest. :)
