I'm the token wrinkle at Chick Swagger by Vonnie Davis

I enjoy blogging. I've met a lot of lovely people via blogs. I'm also fortunate enough to be included in three group blogs.

The Roses of Prose is a talented group of international authors. We work hard at keeping our monthly topics fresh. Every year we write holiday stories to share with our readers and then offer the colleciton as a free download.
 
Not too long ago, all the romance and women's fiction writers of Blue Ridge Literary Agency formed a group blog called Tempting Romance. The beauty of our group is the differences in our writing careers. A few are with large publishers, some are multi-published with smaller ePublishers and a few are waiting for "the call." Because we belive in supporting other writers, we offer Saturday promo for various authors.

 
Recently I was asked to join Chick Swagger, an edgy blog with an humorous and often snarky take on women's issues. They are high energy and, my-oh-my, I hope I can keep up. I’ll be bringing a different perspective to things, an older perspective. Yes, I am the token wrinkle, the bearer of cottage cheese thighs, and a proud grandma. I’m a product of the sixties and wore hip-huggers before I had hips to hug. I survived the seventies and didn’t inhale once. I’ve protested, burned my bra and breached the male dominated work environment at Mack Trucks by working on the engine line. I started college at the age of forty-four, met the love of my life at fifty-five and at sixty-two realized my dream of being published. But don't let my Medicare card fool you. I've still got some chick swagger left in me...it just moves a little slower these days.

Vonnie, I can assure you, you aren't the token wrinkle at CS! WE are totally the lucky ones to score you. You'll not only keep up, you do it before your first cup of coffee! LOL. I so look forward to learning, sharing, and laughing with you, and I know the rest of the chicks feel the same! xoxo

I'm looking forward to being part of the blog. I only hope my take on things amuses your followers and helps them to embrace themselves as the fabulous women they are.

It's so easy to be intimidated by the energetic, educated, YOUNG people writing today. When I was their age...let's just say I wasn't writing great stories while raising brilliant children. We who came into writing later have a lot of living to do. And we also know who first sang that song!

I know just what you mean, Mona. When I was young, it was all I could do to eek out time to sleep, much less write. They amaze me. Simply amaze me. Thanks for stopping by.
