Tell me (us) who you are and what you do!

I thought it'd be nice if you all could introduce yourselves.

So many times I visit blogs and read the blog posts, but don't always have time to look at the bios, or, I'll read bios but then become busy and forget the little details about the people I visit and/or who come by here.

So, how about you tell me and everyone what you are up to, who you are: are you are writer--and what stage are you in the process? Do you create things--do you sell them? Are you an artist/truck driver/mom/dad/dog trainer?

Who are you? . . .

Y'all have a great weekend and go do the day!

Blimey, you like to make us work, don't you. I'll have to go for a smoke to work out who I am before I can tell everyone.

Angie Ledbetter said...

I'm just a crazy old Cajun lady who misses her friend, the crazy hermit mountain woman. Oh, and I write, dabble in poetry, tweet, blog, fb, edit, work on my WiP, cook, laugh, and pub fine quarterly issues of @RoseandThorn, look after my kidlets...ummm, and nap whenever I can.

Steph Jordan said...

I'm a mixed up mixed media Artist who never stops LOL. Working on my Halloween show right now and cracking myself up! I love all my fab friends including Kat and Angie :-))

Suldog said...

I'm a voice-over artist who also does commercial production work. That is, I voice ads and such, but I also produce ads done by other voices. My past lives have included being a bass guitarist/vocalist in many heavy metal/hard rock bands, as well as such diverse occupations as blackjack dealer, truck driver, warehouse worker, proofreader, and ice cream man.

I could go on, but then I'd be hijacking your blog :-)

Pretty nice blog you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such topics and anything connected to this matter. I definitely want to read more on that blog soon.

I'm an as-yet-unpublished writer who, after sixteen months of drafting, revising, crying over critiques (and some rejections) is this close to being finished with my YA / Urban Fantasy and nabbing an agent.

Right? :)

Michelle said...

Ooooh look! Three books! I am fine Katherine, thanks for caring , just not blogging at the moment. Life got awfully busy...sigh xxxxx

Brenda Watson said...

I am a semi-retired reading teacher who quilts and takes care of family. I read a lot of Appalachian fiction mostly because my mom grew up in WV coal towns and knows all the family stories, good and bad.

Marcy said...

Well...let's see... Right now I have a few different things going on: Mom of 2, student at Montana State, chef, virtual assistant to a real estate agent, and Wonder Woman.

I have so many titles that I don't know who I really am! LOL!

I'm Wife to the greatest hubby, Mommy to two sons in their 40's, Grandma K to the sweetest, most talented and beautiful granddaughters named Kristine and Kathleen, mother in law to a precious girl named Dana, sister to a sister and five brothers and so many more titles!

I have been and always will be a writer and avid reader. I mostly write fiction short stories.

I'm a Christian older gal who lives in FL and enjoys photography and nature.

And I love getting to know and make friends with all the wonderful bloggers out there in cyber world.

I'm a mom of three little boys, married to my husband for the last 13 years. And, as of this year, I'm a substitute teacher. Will soon start work on my teacher certification program (elem. ed). I've always wanted to be a teacher and am now pursuing that dream! Above, below, beside and through all of that I'm also a writer. Have finished my first novel and am a month or two into the query process...looking for an agent. I'm also a new blogger and have so enjoyed becoming part of such a supportive, positive writing community :)

Thank you for your blog and for your encouragement!

Las Vegas Writer said...

I'm a writer, not a mom, a wife, an avid reader, a blogger, a student and many more. :) I'm one of those crazy people who write because they can't not write. My imaginary friends speak to me in the shower and in my dreams and I spend most of my time with them. I'm obsessed with reading about others writers and am glad I found your blog!

The Paper Whisperer said...

I am an overunderachiever who can't see the forest for the trees. I keep my plate (too) full while daydreaming about my second (and third) helpings. I used to think I was a type A personality; now I just think I'm two sandwiches away from a picnic. *big sigh/big relief* Admitting the problem is the first step...sadly/"unsadly," I don't really view it as a problem and am finally okay with the "verdict." (My therapist made me write that) I am a mom to 2 boys, 10 and 31....need I say more? Sure I do...I ALWAYS do, therein lies the problem. SHUT UP AND JUST WRITE ALREADY!! (see what I mean?) If I never got paid to write, it would be okay because the instant "release" is more than enough. Oh yeah, I'm a liar also. *laughing at myself* Eventually I'll grow on ya....just like mold. hahaha Robin here, btw; a.k.a. The Paper Whisperer (only I've never whisperered in my life). Single (looking for Prince Charming) account coordinator for a travel agency (I'm Robin, fly me)and Mom to one boy and one man. Now, where's the snack table? :-D

I am a registered nurse who has detoxed folks for the last 15 years. I've worked the night shift for 30 years. I'm tired.

I'm a writer. The only publisher I've ever had is Blogger. That counts doesn't it?


Debbie said...

Love this! For instance, after all these months and months, I had no idea Suldog did voice overs. And, I'm heading off to meet some new folks after this!
I'm a foothills gal, mom to 4, wife for 24 years, substitute teacher, friend, and daughter.

lakeviewer said...

I'm a retired educator, moved to a small coastal town in Oregon to spend my last days reading, writing, pursuing interests I had no time to pursue when my work and my family took every minute of my day. I've written a memoir-put it on a blog-and are deciding what to do with it now that it is finished. Most of the time, if I don't walk, garden or watch movies, I read and write and wallow in ideas.

Life can't get any better.

Kerry said...

How nice of you to ask.

I'm a middle school art teacher. I like to write but I am not an author. Mostly I just like to read.

My oldest son is a struggling writer of poetry and esoteric fiction. Ah, what a hard row to hoe.

I really enjoy your approach to your craft, Kathryn. Keep it up girl!

Sharla said...

Well now I want to be that artist/truck driver/mom/dad/dog trainer you mentioned!! HARWWW!!

Very cool post idea, lady.

I'm a mom, wife, writer--not published yet--of romantic women's fiction usually with a paranormal twist. My hubby and I have been married 4 years and we have a 15 yr old daughter (mine) and a 20 yr old son (his) and between us we have two rat terriers and eight cockatiels. I still work full time at a refinery, but hoping that one day God will sprinkle me with stay-at-home-novelist dust.

Waterfall said...

I'm a writer who is from south Louisiana but now lives in the mountains of Western NC (kind of like someone else I know).

I'm actually a technical writer and a late-in-life new mommy. I've worked all my life at the craft of writing and am a pretty good editor. I've done some freelance writing, wrote a hiking guide for Louisiana's trails, and edited a book that ended up getting an IPPY award.

So, while I've never published a novel of my own, I've been blessed enough to write for a living, in one form or another, for most of my adult life.

Oh, and I'm an INFP, for anyone who is into MBTI personality types. :)

Marguerite said...

I'm just a Cajun gal who loves to have lots of good ole Cajun fun! Love to dance to Cajun music, love to cook and eat Cajun food, love to go to Cajun festivals, love to hang out in Cajun places with Cajun people, love to write on my Cajun blog, and love to create Cajun recipes for my upcoming Cajun cookbook! But, I think you already knew that! LOL :)
