It’s our blogaversary!
That being said, here’s our very first post ~ 4/20/2010
Today we’re starting our blog. For years we’ve sipped great coffee, nibbled tasty treats, talked through the life dramas, and read our writing to each other. Frequently we’ve had a silent partner in all this: Ted Kooser, Jane Yolen, Lary Bloom, Art Plotnik, Anne Lamott. We’ve read their books about writing and let their wise words inspire us. This blog is going to be another silent partner we think, but right now getting going with it is a bit like trying to get clear, cool water from the faucet. We need to run the water for a while to swish out whatever’s been lodging along the old pipes. Sometimes those pipes clank and the water sputters. Sometimes we curse and talk about whether or not the plumbing’s ever going to be right. And then it happens. Luscious, clean, boy-is-this-well-good-or-what water. That’s the way it will be with our fussing with a writing blog. Just keep the tap on we’ve decided. It’ll come.
And come it has.
Words We Women Write was born out of, well, unbridled curiosity and wonder.
The adventure of uncertainty lured us in. (That, and there was nowhere else we needed to be.)
Now, seven years later, we’ve birthed two more ~

We still fuss with the plumbing.
Apple geniuses help us tinker, WordPress Happiness Engineers make the irreversible reversible.
And Readers, you are why we’re still having a good time, all the time.
Thanks for coming. ♥
