Once upon a time there was a woman who had to admit she was no longer a girl. She was a mother. She had lived through one career and the death of both parents. Her life was filled with many joys, sorrows and laughs. It should have been enough, but it wasn’t, because, after years living at the mercy of her uncooperative and unhealthy body, she remembered she still had something left to give – stories. This woman – mother, wife, sister, teacher, and friend – almost forgot that, first and foremost, she was a writer.
Meet NV Rivera, this is her blog.
Hello and welcome to my blog. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you consider making these visits a habit. This is day one of the adventure, but I do have some plans for what’s coming next. This blog is the right place for you IF:
- you are interested in taking the journey with a writer from first draft to publication.
- you like writing prompts and participating in them.
- you are interested in all the places one writer finds her inspiration, motivation, and education.
- you want to read about how one local writing group meets and works together for mutual growth.
- you are currently wearing Chuck Taylors, eating chocolate, watching Doctor Who and/or Buffy the Vampire Slayer and thereby already find yourself irresitibly drawn to NV Rivera fandom (I know my peeps are out there)!
So bookmark this page, share it with your cool friends, and follow along (all types of following options can be found in the drop-down menu!), but — most importantly — give me a shout out. Add a comment, or send me a tweet (@nv_rivera) so I know you are out there. Let’s be friends, because I have this sneaking suspicion you are awesome!
Don’t know what to say in the comments? I’ve got a couple of things I’m curious about:
How did you end up at this page today?
Are you a writer? If so, what are your current writing goals?
Which genre do you read/write most often?
Read/watched/heard anything amazing lately? Give me your recommendations!
