Love your blog!
Thank you! I just looked through yours and I like it. If you don’t mind me asking, is there any connection in your blog’s title to Tavi Gevinson’s Rookie Magazine?
Haha no. I made that name up when I started running. I don’t remember how I came up with it.
I see. Figured I ask. Keep up the good work! I noticed that your blog has been nominated for a few awards recently.
No harm in asking. I like questions. I look forward to your blog posts ❤
Great Blog! Keep up the good work!
hey Lauren, we got your video, thanks for submitting! Didn’t see an email I could reply too since it was dropbox that sent the message.
Hi Phil! Sorry, didn’t realize my email address wasn’t showing up. It’s my first time really using Dropbox. Hang on; I’ll send it to you.
I love your blog! What inspired you to create it?
Hey Desiree! Glad you like it. It was just in the matter of having one major hub for people to go to to learn about my work, as well as having a space to talk about storytelling, my books, about writing, and about life as a writer.
