Happy Leap Day, everybody, and happy Spotlight day, again. Today, my spotlight victim – er, gracious guest is Jarmila, from Freelance Writer for Women and Children.
How many Campaigners does it take to change a light bulb?
I see light bulbs as ideas. In that case, we would not need Campaigners to change a light bulb. The electricity we generate from all the great ideas would keep that bulb glowing for a very long time!
How will you know when you’ve reached success as a writer?
When I hear folks say, “That article/book/story was such an encouragement to me” or “I didn’t know that…how fascinating!” or, “I felt as though I was there in the scene with your character.” Any or all of those would spur me on…
What’s your favorite breakfast food?
That’s a tough one. I can’t decide between eggs Benedict, eggs and corn-beef hash, or biscuits and gravy. They are meals to be indulged in only a few times a year!
What advice would you give to all your fellow campaigners?
Don’t get over committed, do what you can, and don’t feel intimidated by others. Write what you know and love, and not what you feel is popular, or what you are told will sell. Be true to yourself. Be brave, and branch out in a new way this year with either FaceBook, Twitter, or your blog.
Jarmila V. Del Boccio (a.k.a. Vicki by friends) has been a freelance writer for women and children for the past two years, and has published in “Thriving Family” magazine. Her passion is to make History and the Scriptures come alive for children, although PiBoIdMo and 12×12 in 2012 has stretched her to include fiction. Her Travel Blog is primarily used to share her family’s amazing homeschool expeditions, but has morphed to include a “journey into the world of writing.”
Thanks so much for sharing your light bulbs with us, Jarmila!
