The above was written by Michelle Picarella. What does all this mean? It means an epic collaboration. It means Seven different Writers. Seven different voices. Seven minds. From all around doing what we love to do.
Okay so what’s the big announcement? you ask with a sneer. THIS: We, The Seven will be unleashing our compendium, tentatively titled The Seven Deadly Sins, the brain-child of Michelle. I am very excited to be a part of this. We all “met” on Twitter. SEE? It’s still proving to be a terrific place for networking and building relationships and networks. I digress and return to The Seven.
Not only are we from different walks of life, as I mentioned we have our own voice. By voice I mean of course our writing voice. We write in and for different genres. Some strictly one, others have branched out. This is perhaps the best part of all this. We don’t write similar. I can guarantee that. When I was asked by Michelle I was ecstatic. What an opportunity.
