So many people contribute to our writing path, many without even realizing what an impact their support, knowledge and kindness makes. As a feature here at The Bookshelf Muse, I will give some well-deserved recognition to those who really make the Writing Community a better place…people who truly are Writing Heroes.
Today I’m pleased to call Gene Lempp a Writing Hero. I met Gene through Kristen Lamb‘s #WANA hashtag on twitter and right away saw just how much he enjoyed connecting with and supporting other writers. Gene works hard to give other writers exposure, both in his daily tweets to blogs and articles, and also through an absolutely fabulous weekly round up aptly named “Writing Blog Treasures“. I always find some really great stuff in his links and appreciate him putting it together. It saves me time–something that there’s never of, it seems.
Gene is genuine and hard working. He’s always ready with a word of support and has built a great community through his blog. Gene is also a big supporter of Author Kait Nolan‘s A Round of Words in 80 Days, which is a group for writers who know that real life can get in the way of creating and so focuses on ‘tailored’ goals for the busy writer. (If this sounds like you, check it out!).
He also runs a thought-provoking series on his blog called Designing From Bones, which is a deep look at historical events, places and ideas, and how a writer’s imagination can utilize (and twist!) the past to create some incredible fiction. He profiles some unique stuff (like cannibalism) so I highly recommend checking this out. Also, don’t forget to find him on Twitter!
Thank you GENE, for being one of my WRITING HEROES. You inspire me!
To pay it forward, I will give a 1000-word critique to Gene, who can choose to keep it for himself or offer it as a giveaway on his blog! As a resident Writing Hero, he will also have a permanent link in our header.
