We All Have to Start Somewhere



My buddy, Meg Waite Clayton (who I blogged about last week), has a fabulous blog called 1st Books, where she invites authors to chat about their journeys to their first books. I'm featured today which is pretty cool, but I know you'll want to check it out every Wednesday.

And, in the small world category, Meg and I met through our agent, got to be buddies through the blogosphere, and when we dug into each others pasts we discovered we'd gone to the same high school and graduated one year apart (but hadn't known each other back then. It was a big school). I pulled out my yearbook from 1976 and there we were, bad 70's hair and all.

I've also got a post up over at my group clog, so if you're craving more of my dulcet words, hop on over here.

I attended a big (BIG) high school, too. There were people in my own class that I didn't know. Some come up to me now (when I teach their children) and say, "Remember me? Class of --?"

The first books blog sounds terrific. I will be sure to check it out. And I love the (very appropriate) picture to go with the topic :)

That's very cool that you guys attended the same high school! My high school was huge, too - about 700 in my graduating class. I like to think I'm the most famous writer ever to graduate from there, but I'm sure I'm not. But I am a legend in my own mind.

Daisy--how weird to have kids of classmates!

Lisa--I think you'll really like the 1st Books blog--and glad you liked the picture!

Melanie--As long as you're a legend somewhere!

Hi Judy,
I just read your "You Never Know" story and first, give you kudos for hanging in there, and second, can relate b/c I'm in that earlier stage now myself. I'd like to think that the time and rejections that that come along make us stronger and better writers, if we learn from them. Your story motivates me to keep on writing, and putting myself out there. Thanks.

Hey Joanne,

Thanks! We are all in this together and I'm continually learning from my own experiences and from everyone else's. That's one of the neat things about this whole community--so glad you're joining us!

I am glad you persevered, Judy. Your book was quietly eloquent; I was very moved by it.

I just scored a copy of Meg's book. I'll head over to read your post on her blog.
