Last week, I joined the “Writing About Writing” blog tour after being invited by Sor’a Garrett, creator of The Shine Connection blog. This week, I will introduce you to three bloggers whom I’ve invited to participate, starting today with Karen R. Sanderson, “The Word Shark.”

Karen R. Sanderson, “The Word Shark”
Karen was the first person I thought of when I was trying to decide who to invite to this blog tour. Her blog is quite eclectic, but for writers, it is a treasure trove of thoughtful and valuable posts about the craft of writing, the ins and outs of editing, tips about publishing, and much, much more. Karen is a talented writer and poet herself, and more than anyone I know, she practices a “pay it forward” attitude of providing value and shining a spotlight on other aspiring writers, quality editors, and creative people who are doing good things in the world. She has been one of my most stalwart supporters at Heartspoken, and it pleases me greatly to introduce her—and her blog—to you.
Today Karen has posted the answers to the same four questions I answered last week. I hope you’ll HOP ON OVER to get a look behind the curtain at her writing motives and practices. And be sure to connect with her using her social media links below.
Karen was raised by a mother who wanted to be an English teacher and who worked for Merriam-Webster as a proofreader and an aunt who could complete the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle in a day. Their favorite expression was, “Look it up!” Karen reads punctuation and grammar manuals for fun. Her favorite book is the dictionary.
Karen is a fantastic editor and proofreader (I’ve used her many times), blogger, writer, and grandmother. You can find her at The Word Shark website. Find her blog here. Connect with Karen on Facebook, Twitter,LinkedIn, and Google+.
