I began this blog as a place to jot down random thoughts on writing, so as to spare family and friends the drudgery of reading or hearing about a subject of little interest to them. Honestly, I do know how I’ve rambled on about my work-in-progress, a little Hunger Games meets Narnia YA Fantasy trilogy… Anyhow, I know. It’s not as exciting when you aren’t writing it. So this little blog was born, to give me an outlet while excusing my loved ones from what must be a mystifying obsession of mine.
What I found here at Waiting For a Name was a community of writers going by the name of the Friday Fictioneers – amazing, creative, encouraging folks who share a delight in words and who, by their “likes” and their enthusiastic comments, have given wings to a creature I never expected to meet, but now hope someday to fashion into a full-length novel. (Once I complete the aforementioned trilogy, of course!)
To the Friday Fictioneers, it seems too small a thing simply to say “thank you,” for your comments, though small, have served to encourage me greatly. I’ve begun to feel that remaining completely anonymous might not be entirely fair. At any rate, it certainly isn’t necessary.
And so, because some of you have put Angelique on your reading list and because that means so much, I give you one small thing, a name.
