For anyone showing up at this blog because of a posting by Angela Hoy at www.WritersWeekly.com, let me inform you that this blog lies dormant, with a few exceptions, except during the month of November. Thus, its name….Write Nonfiction in November. Occasionally, I am prompted to write something newsworthy, as I did when the Amazon/Booksurge issue was all the talk in the publishing world and when I felt the desire to promote a writing conference, which I did in June (my last posting…not in April, as Angela claimed). I feel the need to at least explain that, should you think this blog is “dead,” as she incorrectly reported. It is not dead; it lying in wait until November when the challenge begins again.
As for Angela’s need to make me so wrong, fine. I have no need to do that. If she wants to make assumptions about me, fine. If you want to know who I am and what I’m about, read my blog. Then you’ll know the truth. Go to my website, http://www.ninaamir.com/ and read my work or my bio or my resume. Ask my clients and my students what they think of me and my advice and my work. They know the truth. Learn about me as an author and a person, if you feel so inclined.
Angela doesn’t know me at all. She is basing her judgments on a series of emails and even on my attempt to clarify a statement about writing for free. She says I misread her rudeness. Is it possible she misread anything in our communication or about me?
For more about writing for free, check back in November…when I will have something to say on the subject and some guest bloggers will offer their expertise and knowledge — and their writing — to this blog (for free), because sometimes being of service by supporting other writers is just the right thing to do.
By the way, this blog was formerly hosted by Blogger, and I converted it to WordPress not long ago. In the process, the dates got moved around on the postings from November and the last blog actually got dropped off. These problems will be fixed prior to Write Nonfiction in November 2008’s challenge. If you want to read that post in the meantime, you can find it at http://writenonficinnov.blogspot.com/.
I hope to see you here again in November!
