The Followers of an Author

Authors write because you follow.

It’s as simple and complicated as that.

I have to write. It’s my escape route from the real world. It’s a road I travel often, yet I never tire of the scenery that passes by the windows of my mind.  I don’t want to leave my stories tucked in a drawer somewhere or left alone on the disk drive of my computer. I want to share my stories with the ones who have chosen to walk the highway of my mind along with me.

When I hear my iPhone ding, I’m like Pavlov’s dog. I HAVE to see what it is and who it’s from. When the letters spell out “WordPress” in the title, I will admit…I do a few fist pumps. I love seeing that someone has commented, liked or chosen to follow this Texas girl. That’s awesome. It’s pretty incredible to know that someone, somewhere on this great planet has read what I’ve written.

I will always follow back. Why? Because that’s how I roll. What you say and write is important to me. I exist because of you. If I could give you the world, I would. Instead, I hope my heart and appreciation is enough.


P.S. Yes, I have a slight addiction to the Instagram photo app. Why do you ask? 😉
