Let me try that again.
My name is Adria Waters and I am a… (writer)

At least, on some days, I think I am. I haven’t yet gotten to the point where I feel confident saying the above in anything louder than a whisper. Why not? Because I have some predetermined notion of what a writer is, and, let’s be honest, it includes people like Ernest Hemmingway, Mark Twain, and Stephen King. Those people are writers. Me? I’m an imposter.

But, as I insist on giving voice to the rattlings in my head by writing them down, I suppose I am, at least by some definition of the word, a writer. So, here begins my journey into the oh-so-scary world of self-publishing and getting my work out there so that people can actually read it.

Any wishes of luck are appreciated.

    Adria: First, thanks for the valuable input Sunday at CCMWG; I appreciated it. Second, the term I was trying to think of turned out to be “new adult” which was the subject of an article in Writer’s Digest, July/August 2013, pp. 28-30. You said you subscribed, so you may still have that issue. If not, I can scan it and email it to you. It’s written by Teri Brown, about whom I know nothing.

    I hope the second graders behaved today.

      Thank you so much! I’ll have to check out that article – I have the July/Aug edition filed away in my ever-growing “to read” pile. I only had time to skim it before school started and my free time went from miniscule to non-existent!
      It was a pleasure meeting you as well and I hope I get to read more of the piece you shared – you have an exquisite writing style!
      See you at the next meeting and thanks again! 🙂
