I’m sorry, I know a venerable lady of my age should be more lady-like but, stuff it… I’m so excited I can’t help myself…. YES!
For those of you who haven’t heard me speak of Indies Unlimited before, and can’t imagine why I’m so excited, let me give you a quick run down.
Indies Unlimited is a website where writers get together to chat, and learn about the industry. It’s a place that fosters excellence, and it’s my favourite place on the net [apart from my own blog and all of you, of course].
Now I started hanging out at IU [Indies Unlimited] close to a year ago, back when I was still very much a wannabe author. I didn’t speak up very much, but by god I did some learning, and laughing. These published authors were damn funny. Their moto seemed to be ‘why preach when you can tell a joke instead?’ But those jokes were all teaching important lessons for people like me.
And then the incredible happened – I was asked to write an article for all these experienced, terribly talented writers. Boy, talk about rites-of-passage…
I agonized over that article for days. When I finally sent it off, I had everything crossed, from fingers to knees. I was praying ‘they’ would not be offended by my brand of humour. Or my Brit spelling. I was also praying I hadn’t made a complete fool of myself.
Well, apparently my humour is okay because my virgin article is up and live. And no-one is booing!
