“Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well” ~Stephen King
Beginning in January, this blog will take on an exciting new look, a new focus, and will be moderated by Kimberly P. Walton (w/a Kimberly Packard), another member of the GFW Writers group. My term as moderator has ended.
Writing is a creative outlet of choice. It chooses us. But to be a writer, we first have to be readers. I know because I've been reading and writing ever since I can remember. Words can be therapeutic and transformational for both writer and reader. With the help of members of GFW Writers and our guests, we've painted the world with our words on this blog.
I’m sure the guest authors who willingly shared tricks of the trade, talked about their books and writing journeys, transformed and inspired you. I know they did me. To all of the contributors and readers, thank you for your support over the years. I hope each of your lives has been enriched by reading our blog. If it has, I know you will continue to follow the blog with GFW Writers. I will be following as well and sharing an occasional post.
See you in the New Year!
