Farewell


Today will be my last regular blog here at WWK.  I have an interview scheduled for June, but aside from that, my only capacity here will be as a commenter on future blogs.
I was approached in December 2011 to join this group, and to say that I was honored would be an understatement.  Here was a group of writers who’d been working together on this blog for quite some time, and I felt like a newbie, still trying to figure out the pleasures and pitfalls that come from having my own blog.  To be invited to become a member of a second, more established one thrilled me and scared me, but I faced my fear.
And I’m so glad I did.
I got to learn how to take feedback/suggestions for my writing (like a good critique group, we submit our blogs to everyone in the group so that others can catch things we may have missed).  I got to see other styles of writing, which has helped to improve my own.  I got to learn what it’s like to work with a group of people toward one common writing goal.  And I even wrote my first interview here (the second to be shared in June, as I said).
All the writers here are a great group of people, from various walks of life, and I’ve been happy to live among their midst for a while.  It’s been a lot of fun getting to know each of the other writers, and I truly appreciate their insights, and the improvements they’ve offered to me over the course of my time here.
Unfortunately, things are coming on the horizon in my life that make me know I need to step away from this group.  Hopefully I’ll be able to write here again occasionally, with the Salad Bowl Saturday lineup, and who knows, I might even be back here as an interviewee someday, to promote an upcoming book.
Until then, I want to send my thanks to everyone at WWK: Carla, EB, Gloria, Jim, Kara, Paula and Warren.  It’s been lovely working with you all, and here’s hoping I’ll get to meet you at a conference somewhere!
I also want to send my thanks out to those of you who have come by to read my blogs and comment on them.  You’re a lovely audience, and I hope I’ll get to meet you all at some point, too.
Take care,
Alyx Morgan
