Each Friday I write about somone in the blogosphere who teaches me lessons, is supportive, and like all my Following in the Footsteps heroes is someone I would like in some small way to emulate.
How do I choose my FITFS? Selecting first, or second, or third would be nigh unto impossible. In addition to wanting to honor those who I admire it seemed the easiest way would be to select those who take the time to comment on my posts first. If you have ever commented then it is quite likely that some Friday, ‘when you least expect it you’re elected’ as the song from Candid Camera goes, you will be highlighted here.
This theme takes a better defined form each time I do it. FITFS started out as a blanket praise and is evolving into delicious declarations of each writers’strengths, my fave posts or quotes (cause fave posts are almost impossibloe to choose), and what I have learned or what has inspired me.
Linda Cassidy Lewis is a California girl originally from Indiana. Artistically she began expressing her creativity through drawing and eventually portaits with clientele in the US, Europe, and UK. She is the consumate artist, drawing, living art, beading, and of course that fave expression of each of us – writing.
Certainly LCL (don’t her initials even seem poetic?) is dedicated, tenacious, persistent and very talented.
It is almost impossible to choose a favorite post – there are so many. Her first post was I believe October 13, 2008 in which she discusses how the Ms. Perfect side of her being judges everything she writes as garbage and with she posted a quote by C. J. Sherryh; ‘It is perfectly okay to write garbage as long as you edit brilliantly.’
My fave quote by Linda herself is; ‘When you hoard imagination it suffers a sad, lonely death, so, as an act of mercy, I write fiction.’ Bloody brilliant I say!
See this author is all about inspiration so how could my own Ms. Perfect even think of holding me back. So far Linda Cassidy Lewis is the Doer and I with toes in the frigid unknown seas of publication stand poised and ready to jump in, getting braver every moment by her display of bravery.
She has a number of literary projects on the go and is the published author of ‘The Brevity of Roses. and I quote from Michelle Davidson Argyle author of ‘Monarch'; Told in gorgeous poetic tones, The Brevity of Roses will take you on a journey delving into the unique characters as delicate and beautiful as a rose itself. Lewis’real understanding of relationships is phenomenal.’
Do yourself a favor and visit the mulitalented, multifaceted gem of a writer, and please click a ‘like’ or leave a wee comment for her. Something we all appreciate!
I am now off to the last supper for our Scots cuz who alas must depart tomorrow!
And once again in case that linky thing isn’t working or I have made a mistake, please find LCL at lindacassidylewis.com
