Literary agent Rachelle Gardner recently held a party over at her blog, encouraging readers to introduce themselves in the comments. It was a brilliant idea — A great way to connect with other writers and make a few new online friends.
Such a brilliant idea, in fact, that I’m going to steal it, and throw a party here, right now! Today! On a Tuesday! And I’ll let it rage until Friday, so we can really get a sense for some of the interesting characters who read this blog. (That means even if you say “hi” today, you might want to check back on Thursday to see who you’ve missed.)
So mingle! Leave a comment and tell us about yourself. If you’re a writer, tell us (briefly) about your current project or, if you’re published, leave a link for your book. I happen to know there also are a bunch of loyal readers out there who refrain from commenting because they’re not part of the writing crowd. We want to hear from you, too! Why lurk when you can be the cool guy at the party? If you need an icebreaker, you can start by telling us why, as a non-writer, you read this blog.
If you’ve got a Web site, blog or Twitter handle, leave us the link so we can check you out.
I’ll be right back with some punch.
