Welcome to NV Rivera

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!

*Special thanks to Alicia Audrey for her DIYMfa post on flash bios, which inspired the beginning of this post.

  1. This blog introduction is wonderful. I love writing prompts. They spark so much creativity. Good luck with whatever piece you are currently working on.

    I noticed that you failed to mention having any pets. Do you have any? Do you have any mops?

    1. This is hilarious.
      Why, yes, I do have a pet. I owns ShihTzu named Champ who currently looks adorable in his weather-contradicting shaved body haircut, not his typical dirty-mop look!


  2. Hiya Nicole! I had to come on over and check it out and I am loving it! Hope you still plan to hang out with us at StoryDam chat and if you are interested you can check out Row80. I’m participating this round to help keep my writing on track. Love to you and your family!


    1. OMG! Morgan, thank you so much for reminding me about ROW180! Somehow I completely forgot about them.
      As for StoryDam, I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things on my Thursday nights (though this Thursday is New York ComicCon, so I may miss that one).
      Thank you so much for stopping by. Best of luck with this month’s poetry bonanza!
