So, as you guys know I’ve been working like crazy to make sure that my blog posts are accessible everywhere. That means if I publish a post, you automatically have access to it wherever you need! I’m really hoping that setting things up like this will give me more time to write and be prolific at whatever project I’m working on. In addition to that, it really streamlines the entire transition of thought-to-reality when I have new ideas banging around inside my head! That said, let’s move on.
It wasn’t too terribly long ago that I started a Twitter account. I’d say, perhaps a couple years ago? It’s hard to tell now. Anywho though, when that first started I was entirely overwhelmed! I mean how in the world could a young writress become a part of a blossoming and diverse community already composed of millions of chatty social butterflies? How on earth could I even hope to make friends, or promote myself or my work? Well that seemed nigh impossible to say the least. That is, until I met Mrs. Ritchie. Also known as MrsRitchie1986, this amazing young woman and writress helped me feel right at home amidst the sea of social networking! She’d give tips on how to promote my account, and even retweeted some tweets I’d already posted! Before long my traffic was increasing like never before! So without any more rambling I really want to say that I owe so much to her, and if you’re reading this Mrs. Ritchie, you are one of my best friends on here, EVER! As for my account just exploding with new followers and likes and retweets recently I’d just have to say that is the good Lord being faithful to His Promises. And why on earth should that not surprise me? Because God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good! I’ve literally been getting like over 15 followers after I got to bed and wake up each morning, and then like another 20 or so during the day when I’m tweeting! I just…I’m totally overwhelmed with God’s goodness and how many new people I’m meeting! There was a time I worked really hard to get my name out there and now it’s like an explosion of activity! There’s still room to improve though, of course! And that reminds me, I have a little story to tell you.
Basically the whole reason I got involved with Twitter is because of a certain movie I just love, called Chef. It came out in 2014, and was about a 5-star Chef who loses his success, then regains it by getting a food truck, which becomes successful because of his son’s skills with Twitter and geotagging. It’s a very unique take on what could have been a typical movie, and I highly recommend seeing it! Aside from being a great film about family, friendship and forgiveness it also taught me a lot about Twitter and how it works, and it was then that I saw this that I knew I just had to get on there. Now with the vantage point of two years or so I can definitely see it was the best social media decision I ever made! I really want to thank whoever is reading this too, for your interest in my work and your awesome support! My biggest regret is knowing I can’t always thank each one of you for following or liking or retweeting me…heck, just being a fan! I really wish I could, because you all deserve it so much, and then so much more even! But seriously. Okay. Just…calm down Labatryth. Just got to calm down…But HOW!?
I guess I should tell you about my plans for this blog and upcoming content! Okay. So. The whole point of this blog is to connect with my precious fans like you, anytime, anywhere. When I think of myself as a writress it’s my fans that always come first, so I really cherish the ability to connect with all of you and communicate, and bounce ideas off each other. It’s especially valuable for me to communicate how I’m feeling as an author, because it’s not always sunshine and roses, and if I don’t reach out, none of us are on the same page (Pun definitely intended). I always want to say that it’s because of my fans I am even an author in the first place, given that God gave me the ability to do this, of which I am eternally thankful, because if I didn’t know how to write what I felt I think I’d go insane! You’d probably have to peel me off the walls like a banana peel and—wait banana peels shouldn’t be on the—Yeah nevermind that. You get the idea.
As for upcoming stories? Well, Heavy Meta Maleficent is something I’m really focusing on right now. The title may have to change as I assemble every chapter into a book, which shall be available for purchase, but until then you can read each chapter free while still under way! I need to do some plot development on Sneaking Out of the Castle, write perhaps another chapter or few to Library Falls, maybe Continue work on A Waitress in Treasure as well, although I’m still deciding on which stories I want to host for free permanently. I’d say a lot of things are up in the air right now, but Heavy Meta Maleficent IS slotted in my mind to be my first book, however I will eventually arrive at that definitive destination.
Now, onto jewelry. Some of you may know that I am beginning the preliminary stages of setting up and operating my own Etsy shop, from which I will be selling my paw-made jewelry. In case you’re confused as to what that is, it’s just my fancy way of saying “handmade”, as a Dragoness. I mentioned this earlier in one of my blog posts, but I do like to make collars and chokers and bracelets (as well as other kinds of jewelry) out of leather, metal, and plastic! Each piece I create is very special, even like one of my own children. Unfortunately, I can’t say when I’ll totally be up and running, but I would say in the next few months for sure. I’m planning for my collars and chokers to be quite affordable as well! I’m very excited to start a business with my jewelry, as it has been a long-term dream of mine for a long time!
Other than that, I guess that’s about all I have to say for now! Thank you so much again for reading, and I can’t wait to see where this blog goes! I’m going to be posting about a lot of different topics in the future, and you never can quite tell what will happen! Thanks again, and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Always with Love, ❤
Your Queen and Author, 👑
