This month Mormon Mommy Writers blog celebrates 5 years of being part of the best writing community! I can't believe the time has gone by so quickly. I remember the day my friend Jenni James told me we were going to start a writing blog. I thought she was crazy, after all, who would want to hear about writing from me? I'm not published and I had barely finished writing my very first book. She told me there were plenty of writing blogs by published writers but what the writing community needed was a blog by new writers that showed the struggles of writing good, clean books while staying on top of other responsibilities.
I soon found myself writing weekly for MMW blog and learned that Jenni was right. So many of us new writers needed to know we weren't alone. That we belonged somewhere. Over the years I have grown to truly love this community. It's now a part of who I am. I am a Mormon Mommy Writer and I'm proud of it.
I still may not have any of my own books published, and I may still be considered a new writer, but here I know I''m not alone.
The blog has done some changing over the years. We started out with weekly bloggers for every day of the week. This year we changed to biweekly bloggers for everyday of the week. We also have published a MMW book full of short stories, Totally Cliché. Our second MMW book will finally be available to purchase in paperback by sometime next week!! Over the years we've had over 30 different writers, many guest bloggers, and have over 450 followers. What a wonderful community this is and I'm so thankful to all of you who read our humble little blog. A special thank you to those that comment and add your thoughts to ours. I love going to writers conferences and meeting people who read the blog. I feel an instant connection and am grateful for all my virtual friends!
Thank you for 5 wonderful years!! I'm ready for 5 more!!
