Have You Met Kyla?

In case you guys missed the launch of my new (whenever I feel like it) Friday blog feature, inspired by How I Met Your Mother, here's another one. The idea is that I introduce you to someone awesome, someone who just might be fun to get to know!

So, Haaave you met Kyla?
Okay, she is larger than this in real life. If I had my act together today, I would have actually asked for a picture instead of stealing one off her blog. :)

Kyla is a wonderfully warm, generous writer who pens funny vignettes of her life over at her Growing Muses blog. She also writes for the World Moms Blog.

She is jumping right into uncharted territories this November by doing Tara Lazar's fabulous PiBoIdMo, so if you do click over to say hi at Growing Muses, make sure to cheer her on! She has volumes of energy for writing and friends, and I am lucky enough to benefit from that energy both online and in real life.

She has been a major force of inspiration for me in the past few weeks, at her blog, over coffee, and over the lane lines at the pool. (A friend who encourages healthy writing, and healthy exercising? That is a truly valuable friend!)

I am so lucky to have her in my life, and I encourage you to bring her into your life as well, by creating that all-important blogging connection.

And, since we're doing introductions, why don't you tell us all what you are up to on your blog, and link to it in the comments. That way, I can make sure not to miss any awesome reads this Friday!


  1. I feel sheepish leaving the first comment on a post about me...somehow it feels like raising my glass when being toasted but oh well, if I don't comment now, soon enough the bell will ring and my exuberant 5yo will be home, ending today's writing extravaganza.

    I just wanted to say thanks, Heather. Thanks for saying so many nice things about me, thanks for including me in your terrific world of writing and writers. Thanks for giving me and my blog (and my nascent writing endeavors) a shout out and thanks for having a kindergartner in KBR. It's not very often that you get to hear what someone else thinks about you but believe me, the feelings are mutual.

    Ironically, next month we will have lived in this town for three years; as I told Michele (with one "l") during our Wednesday writer's coffee, it takes three years.

  2. You've said so many nice things about her, H! I like her already.

  3. Kyla--I felt like I could write so much about how inspiring you have been in my life recently, but wanted to keep it brief! And, I'm so glad you were the first comment. Publishing a blog post on Friday afternoon is not always conducive to people seeing it! :) I have to get back into my morning postings.

    I think our next project is to pull Michele into the blogging world!

    J--Excellent! And do I talk way too much? LOL.

  4. Oh my gosh! She does sound like the perfect friend!
