Is this thing on?

Hello! Hola! Greetings!

Yes, this is really Sarra Manning, author of Guitar Girl, Pretty Things and the Diary Of A Crush trilogy.

I wanted to have a blog so I can let you know what I'm up to, what I'm into and have a chance to meet some of my readers and answer your questions on my books and anything else you want to know about. I've had so many emails that I've been too snowed under to answer so I thought that having a blog might be the ideal solution.

I'm going to post pretty regularly and also hope to give you sneak previews of Let's Get Lost, my next book, which will be out in the UK in January 2006 and in June of the same year in the States.

So, don't be shy. I don't bite. Come on in and say hello.

Thanks for saying hi. And if you have any questions I'll try to answer them in a future post.

You say in your letter, that the trick to be a writer is to 'write'. Everyone says that, and I know it's not true. You don't just 'write' to become a writer. You imagine, you research some things. You think about your characters day and night and what's going to happen to them. You can't wait to write about them. You dream about your book. You imagine it being a best-seller. You should have a passion to tell your story to the world, and you should love your book as you would love your own child. That's what you need to become a writer. I'm sorry, but you don't 'just write'. Just writing only goes so far, and then you need something else. I'm sure you know all that. I would refuse to believe that you just sat and wrote. Didn't you not notice time go by, and weren't you transported into your book's world? Did you really 'just write', first for a school magazine and then a book?
