This Writer’s Journey . . .

Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers.

I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!

KM Wilsher.

I wasn’t really sure how to start this segment of This Writer’s Journey because I couldn’t figure out what to mention about how she inspires me since she inspires me in so many ways. But here’s my feeble attempt. . .

We met at a local critique group about seven or eight months into my writing journey if I remember correctly. She sat near me and another one of my friends in the group.

And we clicked.

There really isn’t another way to describe it.

She writes fantasy (check out her blog: HERE), and I don’t really read a ton of fantasy, but we decided to start swapping chapters.

She’s got such an elegant style of writing. Her characters are endearing. The worlds she creates are intriguing and beautiful. There’s a bit of her heart and soul in every single word she writes.

KM has a strength about her, too. She hasn’t had the easiest life. All that she endured during her years of addiction and breaking free from it shaped her into a fabulous, loving, and self-less woman. Her smile brightens my day and inspires me to continue on even when the path to publication seems too tough to navigate.

Thank you, KM.

  1. KM has inspired me along my writerly journey, too. She’s an amazing, fun, brilliant person. I’m so glad I “met” her. 🙂

    Thanks for all these posts, Lynn. You’re a selfless, encouraging person and your blog shows it.

  2. Danica – I remember Nora saying that are RWA nationals! 🙂 You were there? Wow, wish I knew you then. I walked around with my roomie looking at the mass of people. LOL
    I love these tributes to others, Lynn!

  3. Nora Roberts talked about the people you meet at conferences and through groups and said some people you’ll just “click” with. I found one at Nationals this year and it looks like you’ve found one as well! I call her my “click”, lol
