(I believe I show my appreciation when I comment on other blogs, link to them, share their posts on social media, or reblog them with my take. I do not give out awards, and do not expect them. A Like or a Comment from you will make my day, and I’ll visit and chat with you in turn. But please, no blog awards.

  1. So happy to see you liked my recent post. I just set a goal last week of connecting with other writers, those making writing their livelihood, or at least making that attempt. I’m in the early stages but have been writing for many years. And published several times but not currently submitting. I am spending time blogging at the moment. I loved your post about Submitting Like a Man.
    Look forward to delving into your blog. So many blogs so little time. : ) Ha ha!

    • Thanks Suzanne— making writing our livelihood, is sadly, a distant dream for most of us. Freelance writing, yes, but am not so sure about fiction writing. Thanks for connecting, and hope to stay in touch.

  2. You requested that I let you know when my new blog was ready.
    Here’s the link:


    I am also on Google+ under my real name: Kathy Workman Lecy. If you wish to connect there, I would happily add you to my circles. 😊

  3. Hi Damyanti!! You have a truly amazing blog site and collection of published works! I have been browsing here for awhile today, looking, reading and enjoying what you and some of your guests have had to say =) So fun and interesting! Congrats on all your accomplishments and thank you so much for visiting my site, because it led me here =) I enjoy writing fiction fantasy adventure and although my imagination runs wild and is on all the time, in my ‘real’ life I am fairly private and quiet. Like you have said, I too live ‘mostly it seems in my mind’ ..well when I am not enjoying time with my daughter and three cats, that is! lol. I am new to blogging and so far only my poetry has been published, but I hope to get more short stories, flash fiction and my fiction works out there, so it meant a lot for you to stop by. Thanks again, and I am now following you so I look forward to more of your work, blogs, guest posts, etc. =)
