You totally rock. I absolutely adore your views and the fact that you take the time to share your experiences with us.

Thanks!

Dude, tell any naysayers you are a big ole Texas guy writing women's fiction. You'll stand out in the marketplace!

I do love pictures in posts. I am a photography addict though as you can tell from my blog. Have a great day!

Keep on ignoring the doubters, dream killers, and pessimists. They'll point to your book in the store one day and say 'I met that guy once'.

Best of luck,

don't worry about credentials. Tom Clancy was a nobody selling insurance before he made it. But he had talent. Where do you put that down on your resume?

2008-04-03T20:19:00.000-05:00

I enjoy your writing posts most, too. I too would like to make a living at fiction writing, and everything I can learn from anybody, published or unpublished, helps me on my way. It's also fun to follow other writers' journeys.

2008-04-03T19:03:00.000-05:00

Yeah! Keep writing, Travis! Through some personal issues, I haven't been able to find the spark again to write in about 2 years... you are definitely an inspiration.

Writing can be a lonely job so relish the times when you are around other writers, pubbed or unpubbed. Feed off them - take their energy and make it your own. Keep writing - when the time is right, there will be an audience for your stories!

If all else fails, turn around and moon your dissenters ...

Perfectly stated!

Happy belated anniversary, Travis. Keep on trucking and writing.

2008-04-03T11:25:00.000-05:00

These two lines right here:

No one person alive has seen everything I have or experienced the exact events as me. And it is the little everyday occurrences that shape who we are and our outlook.

are very, very powerful and so spot-on.

I just like peeking into other people's lives.
Your stories are fun.
It's hard to blog all the time and sparkle. (You feel like you gotta sparkle). But it's just as nice getting some news or seeing a photo.

2008-04-03T10:28:00.000-05:00

When we started Women of Mystery, none of us were published, and we wondered whether anyone would want to read what we had to say about writing, reading, and the vagaries of the publishing industry. As it turned out, people did think it was interesting to hear from the "great unwashed/unpublished" (I'm unpublished, but only unwashed on particularly bad days) because our experiences are most likely *their* experiences. We go to conferences and lurk in bars, which lets them decide whether that's a possible option for them, etc.

So I say, good on ya. Keep it up! And skip the blog if it interferes with Plundered Booty...that's far more important!

2008-04-03T09:48:00.000-05:00

You actually wrote some books? Are they published? I go over to www.thisisby.us from time to time. There are all kinds of stories and poetry that people write and post. It's pretty interesting. But, I had no idea you were a WRITER! I'm impressed.

So, I do have a question. I read a LOT, but nothing educational mind you. However, it amazes me how many mistakes I see in books. Not big ones, but things such as:

She instead of He, or a duplicated word, or a word left out, or one spelled wrong.

Who proofs books before they get printed and sold? I think I would be good at that. I love finding mistakes in books and newspapers. Makes me feel better about myself! LOL

2008-04-03T09:36:00.000-05:00

"...lurk in the bar at a thousand writing conferences until you find an agent or editor drunk enough to say yes."

Are you peeking at my business plan, Travis?

Srsly though, it's great advice to remember that our voices -- no matter how ordinary or insignificant they might seem to us sometimes -- are indisputably unique and worthwhile.
