As part of Randi Lee's 3Ups bloghop, I have the pleasure of spotlighting writer and blogger Krystal Jane at The Narcissistic Rose: Writer of the Fantastical, Supernatural and Magical. If you don't know Krystal or Randi, please head on over to their blogs. They are both really nice and great bloggers to get to know.
I recently met Krystal, but after reading some of her posts, and interacting with her a few times, it's clear I'll be
stalking keeping a close eye on her blog.
Krystal's posts are well constructed, and articulate, and I think
she has what it takes to become a successful writer.
First, she's a determined and motivated individual. That quality jumps right off the page and it's those kinds of writers that are going to be successful.
Another quality I like about Krystal is she's honest about her writing. We all go through our little successes and failures along the road to publication and Krystal isn't afraid to talk about what worked and what didn't work for. The writing community is about sharing and helping each other out and Krystal gets that. :)
I also think it's great that she's willing to experiment with her writing. I wish more writers were like that. In some of her more recent posts, she talks about an experiment she did involving the dreaded query process. She also talked about the breakthrough she had when she her main character convinced her to change POV in her story. What I'm trying to point out here is that experimenting, taking risks, and moving outside our comfort zones, will help us grow and develop as writers, and I think Krystal already knows that.
I'm happy to have gotten the chance to get to know Krystal better and I want to thank Randi for putting together and hosting this special bloghop. You ladies both rock! Oh, and I can't leave without mentioning one more thing. Krystal has a cat named Hamlet, and that, my friends is purrrr awesome. (=
