…when the expectations you didn’t have surprise you with more than you had hoped for…

I went for it yesterday…

I bit the bullet, grabbed the proverbial blogging bull by the horns, jumped right in with both feet…

Yesterday, I wrote my first ever blog, hit the publish button, and off my musings floated into cyber space… To be honest, I had no expectations whatsoever; I thought that my first post would just be consigned to the annals of time and seen by no-one except me. And so it was a lovely surprise when I got some emails telling me that real life people who are waaay better at blogging than me had read my ramblings… And, even more than that, had liked them. That was a nice, snuggly feeling. Now, that’s not to say that I’ve got an army of people lining up to read what I write just yet – but it was an encouraging start, and has really shown me just how easy it is to potentially connect with countless people. I like that. I like that there are people out there who are interested enough to swing by and hear me out. And I love that this gives me a platform that I can stand on and shout, “Come and meet my characters! You’ll really like them!” Because I think if I can get my books out there, then people will like the characters they meet – big, boisterous, larger than life characters who are winsome and endearing and brave. Some are gnarly and loathsome and repellent – which is what they were created to be, but even these characters have a part to play in highlighting the positives in my heroes. And so I’ll write, and I’ll endure, and I’ll encounter new people out here in cyber space from whom I will learn and grow and develop… At least, I hope that’ll be the case…x
