On June 26th I granted a radio interview through WTER Radio with Janet Garraty, the owner and creator of Go Jane News and Write It Like You Mean It. We discussed the ins and out of blogging, from setting realistic goals and deadlines to enlisting trusted friends to give honest content and editing input. But I also wanted to give aspiring writers permission to grab inspiration from where they find it and follow that passion where it leads them, and ultimately to remember that writing should be fun, right!?! Below are responses I wrote in preparation of the interview (although we did stray from this script). The whole process got me thinking about what I write, why I write, and how vital you, my reader, is, to the joy I experience as Nine Cent Girl.

Can you believe Nine Cent Girl hit year TWO in November!?! Since my very first post in 2010 not a day has gone by when I don’t scribble something on Nine Cent Girl or my Twitter or Facebook pages, or post an image on Tumblr or Pinterest. And best of all, thanks to all of you, I’m writing to an audience!!! Like most writers I have two novels, a respectable folder of poems, a stash of short stories, along with the obligatory rejection letters, all crammed into my desk drawers; yet despite not being “formally” published, quite serendipitously, I have become part of a global digital family of writers. I have discovered that as much as I love writing posts and receiving feedback from my readers, I find equal delight reading other bloggers that I stumble upon each week.
