My First Vlog and an Invitation

Welcome to my first vlog. I hope to add a few of these every month so you can get to know me a little better–the real Michelle behind the scenes here at Random Writing Rants. (Robin will be next. Get ready Robin! The camera will find you!)

Next week I’ll be videotaping my friends from our writer’s group. We’re going to take a few scenes from our wips and read them out loud to see what our dialogue really sounds like. I think it’ll be entertaining. And funny. I hope.

Please watch the vlog all the way until the end. It’s short. Make sure you check out Friday’s special event. I need your participation. And so does Kate. Check it out.

  1. Good for you for being brave enough to take the Vlog step–and a good tip re. scarves.
    Well-done. Thanks. Have a great week!

    • Thanks for the compliment, Delores. I hope you can stop by on Friday and read Kate’s query letter. Have a great day!

  2. I’m watching this right now and it’s cracking me up! Love the scarf part. =) I’d say you were a fabulous success on your very first VLOG. Next time, you may want to turn off the part where you can see yourself–it’s really distracting and you end up staring at yourself and never looking the watcher in the eye. Yeah, I know you’re not actually looking your watcher in the eye, but if you stare straight ahead, they’ll think you are. =)
    Looking forward to seeing the query on Friday!

  3. Love this! Like your scarf, too. Although you don’t need it. Will check back Friday and comment on Kate’s query letter!

    • Hi Pat – Thanks for watching goofy me, and I can’t wait for you to meet Kate. What a doll!

  4. So excited! Thank you so much for the help, Michelle!

    Lol, wonderful Michelle, good for you for taking the video plunge!! I’ve subscribed to your YouTube channel and look forward to more. 🙂

    • Wow, thanks AJ. Thanks for the RT’s yesterday, too!
      I hope you’re not disappointed with my videos. They’re a work in progress. Ha. I’ll be looking “up” in the next one. I made the mistake of looking into my screen. I didn’t know there was an off switch so I wouldn’t have to stare at myself. lol.
      Thanks for subscribing to my channel too.
      If you have time, stop by Friday and meet Kate.

  6. Hi Michelle,
    Caught your vlog. Very interesting, and well presented. Your communicative skills are very eloquent. You didn’t put me to sleep. This vlog thing is very new to me. The first time I hosted a TV program, I kept my eyes glued to the floor monitor. Let me suggest the following. Look straight ahead, and pretend that you are speaking to someone in front of you. Looking forward to Friday. How do I subscribe to your channel? Blessings.

    • Hi Johnny,
      Thanks for watching my goofy video. I was looking into my screen and didn’t realize I needed to look above it into the little eye. Hopefully the next one will be better. Keep writing!

  7. Hi Michelle!

    What a Gorgeous Vlog!! Love your honesty and your sharing ~ I have a big smile on my face, now! Well Done!

    I am looking forward to MORE Vlogs from you and yours …

    • Hi Michelle

      How kind of you to “watch” this crazy first vlog of mine. I hope to get better at it–for one I hope to look into the camera instead of the computer. Ha! Knowing I put a smile on your face made my day. Thanks for taking the time to tell me.

      Hope you have a great writing weekend.


Please share your random thoughts.
