Why no one ever contacts me...

I probably mentioned before that I'm working on being a writer.

I've not been particularly sucessful at it, by the way.

I just read an interesting blog post from a literary agent named Rachelle.

Just to summarize: she was wondering why so many writers have websites or blogs without having an e-mail address or any way to contact them listed.

I quote, "Why would you even bother putting yourself out there without giving people a way to contact you?"


Well, Rachelle, I suppose it's because I'm a complete moron.

I mean, I truly didn't think of it.

Dixon Wood Cased Black Core #2 Pencils, 10 Count, Yellow (14400)Obviously I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box here.

In fact, when I first made this blog my mother pointed out that I hadn't even put MY OWN NAME on it!

She said this in an extremely tactful manner, of course.

As in, she didn't wallop me upside the head and yell, "You IDIOT! How are people going to know who you ARE?!"

Which she would have been perfectly justified in doing.

I fixed that, and now I've made it so my e-mail address shows in my profile.

So let those e-mails roll in!

Unless you're just trying to sell me Viagra, or something. I've already got enough of those offers, thanks.

Rachelle says I really should set it up so people can click on the address right from my blog, and it can be encrypted so spam won't go through, or something. Well, I don't really know how to do that....

Maybe later.

I wouldn't want to overload my poor little dull-pencil-point brain just now...

  1. I just recently put my email address on also. At first I was afraid some nutjobs would write me. So far, so good!
