Apparently, I'm Notable



WOW! It's my turn to be featured at Words of Wisdom - which makes me officially their "Blogger of Note", an ego-stroke if ever there was one!

If you're visiting from WOW, welcome, and pull up a chair. There's always a cuppa brewing for friends, and you can help yourself to a slice of cake.

If, on the other hand, you've never heard of WOW, please give me a moment to tell you about it. This is quite a new community, but it was set up by Sandy and Pam to fill a very particular niche: a home for bloggers who focus on their own unique content, rather than on advertising and commercial giveaways. If this sounds like you (or something you might like to read more of) then please drop in and take a look around. I've found a number of very cool blogs in just the few weeks that the site has been running, and it's growing by word of mouth - if you join in, you can help to make it an even better source of great blogging friends for everyone.



I was asked to pick out three posts to introduce myself, which is always a really tough challenge, but here goes.

Ambition, Competition, Motivation is a good introduction to the way I view the world - and why I'm the person who will always be genuinely excited for you because honestly, whoever you are, we're not in competition.

• Travel and adventure is a huge part of my life (and likely to become more so, if my incipient career in travel writing develops as I hope it will), so I often try to bring my readers with me to far-flung places. You can pick out travel adventures by country from the links in my side bar. Our Devonshire Weekend was closer to home, but no less special for that.

• I also write novels in my spare time, so I blog quite a bit about writing; my thoughts on Language in Fantasy probably represent me at my most coherent, combining my academic specialism (linguistics) with my favourite passtime.

I hope you enjoy your visit, and if you do, please consider following along with the adventure that is my life. I'll try to make sure it's exciting for all of us!

Good for you Rachel. Congratulations on your WOW status.

I've just now visited WOW's blog on your recommendation.

It all sounds like such great stuff - anything to advance communications about writing and other creative endeavours, without the interference of commercial motivation or pressures.

Thanks.

Congratulations! I just love the whole concept of WOW, and I'm finding so many new voices that are interesting, thought provoking and just plain fun. I especially liked your post on language in fantasy. There is nothing worse than being totally immersed in a story and being rudely jerked out of it by a poor edit! Kathy
