I have caught spring fever and it has leaked onto my blog. But the new look is more than just that. Now that I have two very different books out on submission (one to publishers and one to my agent) I didn't think it was fair to spotlight one or the other. Besides, Heather's Odyssey isn't just about my books, it's about the journey, the experience, and the people I meet along the way. I wanted the header of my blog to reflect that.
I originally began blogging because when I was starting out I had a million questions and no one seemed to have the answers. I'm the kind of person that wants to know everything about what I'm getting into, that way I have the highest chance of success. Forewarned is forearmed and all that.
Each entry I write is about making the journey easier for the next writer on the path. I haven't always taken the right path, I've made mistakes and taken many missteps. Hopefully by sharing both my failures and successes I can help some of you. In this tumultuous market we can't wait for opportunity to come knocking on our doors anymore. Now we have to seek out opportunity's door and knock up it. Don't forget, come prepared with your lock pick kit and sledgehammer! For an explanation on the lock pick and sledgehammer check out my post on the Scribe Sisters blog about Breaking Into Publishing: http://scribesisters.blogspot.com/2010/04/breaking-into-publishing.html
