I want to know you.

So many of my blog readers are anonymous.  I know you’re out there, friends!  Would you humor me and leave a comment?  It will only take you a minute, and it would delight this poor old writer who has the winter blues and whose manuscript is going to be the death of her.

Here’s what I want to know:

1. Your name.
2. Something you want.
3. The song you can’t get enough of.
4. Your favorite word.
5. A challenge you’re facing.

As for me:

  1. Jackie Lea Sommers aka Jack, Jach, Jav, Jake, Jacob, Deet.
  2. I want readers to adore my characters.
  3. “The Insect” by Falling Up
  4. Apostrophe.
  5. About to resume revisions on Salt Novel. Eeeek!!

      Best wishes on your search for a place of your own. I had an automated search send “matches” to my inbox every day for three years before suddenly I saw one and was like, “I think that’s it.” I visited that house the next day– twice– and put in an offer not long after. It was a long wait, but I LOVE my house.

    I don’t know if you remember me, Jackie, but I found your website about five years ago and sent you an email, and you were so kind to me. I was also living in Minnesota at the time. I’ve come a long way since then (and feel I have a long way to go still!), and I still visit your website every so often.

    Thank you for sharing your generous heart. I hope you’re doing well!
