Hello, I'm Jennifer Fulford, a journalist turned fiction writer. I consider myself one of the lucky ones because my first novel was picked up by a traditional publisher. But I have a keen interest in self-publishing and micro-publishing. I believe there are many paths to publication, and this blog is an outlet to explore my writerly life and discover the meaning of creativity and the nuances of success. My day job is developing climate communications. I lived for three years in Portland, Ore., and consider it my adoptive home although my home base is Western North Carolina. Find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @jmfwriter.
