Niki was previously writing as Esme on her own, and throughout the past while we’ve been chatting back and forth when she mentioned she’d love to share her writing with a bit of a larger audience.
Since the writer of Renesmee’s Diary had to resign due to time constraints, and I’m not 100% sure what’s happening with Alice’s Diary yet and, of course, I’ve stopped writing Bella’s Diary, I figured I owed it to you all to bring on another writer. In emails, a lot of you have made it clear that you’d LOVE an Esme’s Diary, so this is for you!
Niki is a wonderful writer who is able to capture the warmth and compassion that Esme encompasses.
If you have a minute, please ‘Like’ Esme’s Diary on Facebook HERE and drop her a warm ‘welcome’ on her wall. I’ve told her how great and supportive you all can be, so she’s very excited to interact with you. She’s super sweet and friendly!
♥ Now, for those of you who are emailing in and asking why I haven’t added new writers yet to make up for the ones who resigned, or just stopped writing (like myself), it’s because I am very well aware of the fact that this is an extremely busy time for students in school right now. With homework, exams, extracurricular activities and prom to prepare for, writing just isn’t possible for many of you. And even those who have joined the website to write and thought they’d have the time to contribute diaries every-so-often have found it more difficult than it sounded to really find the time to brainstorm ideas, get them down, edit them, etc.
In short, we wont be seeking new writers now until around the beginning of summer break. This is only because I don’t want to add new writers and get you all excited, then have it turn out that they’re too busy/overwhelmed to write. I also fully understand how tough it can be to scrounge up the time to sit down to devote to writing and would rather be patient and get someone who has the time, then to rush into it and add a writer who bit off more than they could chew.
These writers are volunteers, and are doing this in their free time out of the love of the saga, their characters and making people (the readers) happy. Taking anytime at all out of their hectic schedules to write and contribute to the website always means the world to me, and I hope it does to all of you as well.
♥ On another quick note, I want to thank those of you who have read the VERY short preview of my book and have left such wonderful feedback. It means the world to me and has encouraged me to finish editing it and to stop procrastinating.
For those of you who haven’t read the (tiny) preview I released, you can view it under the INFO tab on the fan page for the book HERE.
Thank you all so much!
