Show Me a Writer Actively Practicing the Art

On a coffee break today, I reviewed my list of blog followers. I wondered when you each started following me and why. And I really want want to know who you are and how we connect.

I scrolled down the list and began exploring profiles behind the gravatars. Many of my followers are also writers and photographers. Alieen Hunt’s “about” page shows me a writer actively practicing the art. She lists her literary submissions and publications. She also has links on her “about” page, one for Tumblr. I know practically nothing about Tumblr so I clicked her link and found such a wonderful new experience, I want to share it with you.

The photos hooked me right away. Below them I became engaged with her list of 12 Essential Essays for Writers. I recognize the authors Joan Didion, Annie Dillard, Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King, Elizabeth Gilbert, and many more. I can’t wait to read these essays and apply their wisdom to my own writing.

Today, I want to share Aileen’s “about” page and her Tumblr page with you. If you are a writer I think you, too, will be interested in the essays for writers. It will take more than a coffee break for me to read all the essays. I doubt I can understand how to create my Tumblr account over a cup of java, but it looks like it will be worth a try.

Here are links to Alieen Hunt’s “about” page on her blog, and to the 12 Essential Essays for Writers on her Tumblr account.

    1. Thanks for the comment. More than a gesture. I really like her blog and her Tumblr site. I thought this is a good way for me to save those essays so I can find them later when I have time to read them. I think we should share good finds with each other.

  1. Many thanks for the kind words, Kay. Writing an ‘about’ page isn’t easy. Not sure I won’t make another pass at mine when I get a chance! I think Tumblr might be a good fit for you. It’s a great place to explore a wide range of interests, and it’s easy to get up and running. I’ve found some great content, there. Lots of quirky and niche topics, too. Thanks again, Kay!
