I now have a new home for my blog, next door to my website: www.christinabakerkline.com/blog — and after today, I won’t post to my old ‘wordpress.com’ site anymore. It looks a little different. Let me know what you think!
I have an exciting line-up of guest writers in the next month, including literary agent Molly Lyons on how to have the best relationship possible with your agent, Martin Kihn on writing “yet another non-fiction book proposal for a memoir about (yawn) a man and his dog,” and Donald Maas on inspiring in the reader a sense of awe. So hop over there and subscribe asap — or bookmark it, or add it to your favorite sites. (Your subscription to this site doesn’t automatically transfer.)
I’ve always intended this site to be for writers, about writing. And now that I’m starting fresh, I’m inspired to open it up even more. Let me know what YOU want to read about. More about the lit biz? More about books that inspire? More funny pieces? Shorter pieces? Longer ones? Send me your questions and ideas, and I’ll use them as prompts for posts — my own and others’. And if you want to contribute to the site — with a quote about writing that you love, an observation, an anecdote — just let me know. Let’s share our wealth of knowledge.
Thanks for sticking with me and growing this site so much. In the past year I’ve had nearly 100,000 visitors — pretty great, I think, for a little blog I started for fun.
