KM Weiland's Wordplay

Looking at this young face, one wouldn't expect her to know so much about writing. But not only does she know her stuff, she's at the top of my list if you ask me Who's your mentor?

KM Weiland runs Wordplay, a blog geared toward new writers. What's so great about that? you say? There are tons of those kinds of blogs. I know. I've seen them too.

BUT, Weiland doesn't act like a know-it-all, looking down from her lofty position, granting us great wisdom and direction. She doesn't spew on about her accomplishments, or put on a show.

She's does act like a friend, with the map, willing to share.  She also makes things fun with vlog posts and unique giveaways.

I asked her a question via email last week, and she responded quickly, with genuine information - not just a copy and paste answer. I was touched by her help, and grateful for the encouragement.

Visit her site. Follow her. Check out her work...

This is so cool - I was just looking at her guest post on my blog from over a year ago. It was just as helpful now as it was then. I need to visit her more often.
