This is Me

I, Natalie J. Damschroder, author of indulgent fiction, hereby swear to do the following:

  • Post to this blog regularly, except when I forget or don't have time or am too tired to
  • Be funny, unless I'm not
  • Offer opinions on all things that generate an opinion, but not when I'm afraid it's so controversial or divisive you'll strike me from your reading list forever
  • Copy Gena Showalter and post beefcake pics from time to time
  • Copy Deidre Knight and post about books I really like and hope you'll read
  • Copy Diana Peterfreund and lament the less positive aspects of various portions of society
  • Try to be original from time to time
There will be stuff here about my writing--after all, what's a blog for but self-promotion?

There will also be stuff here about things totally unrelated to writing, usually stuff that's very profound when I think of it in the shower in the morning, but much less so by the time I get it written down--because even more than self-promotion, blogs are about self-expression, right?

I hope people who read this will post their own comments, even if they are not in agreement with mine, and only ask that respectfulness always be maintained. That goes for me, too. :)

I, Gena Showalter, hereby swear to stop by your blog regularly, except when I have no computer access. :) You crack me up, woman, and I love it!

Thank you! You're so sweet.

Totally off topic but I wanted to give you a belated thank you. A week or so ago I was going through some old "Molly" comments from a couple of years ago. I don't remember reading them, I was so miserably pregnant at the time I couldn't be too interested :). Anyway, I got one score that was 130/150 and some great comments. I saw the judge's signature and recognized your name. So, a belated thank you for your efforts.

Wow, Rene! That's so cool of you to take the time to thank me. Judges often don't know the impact their comments have. Even when we get thank-you notes, you never know what the entrant is REALLY thinking.

You just made my day!
