Meet Lindy, aka The_Storyteller on Squidoo. You may recognize her from the amazing drawings she uses to illustrate her lenses, including her recent Lens of the Day. You’ll learn more when you check out our interview, then don’t forget to visit the rest of her lenses, too.
What brought you to Squidoo? I was doing some research on how to make money online with creative writing, and one of things I read mentioned Squidoo. The name intrigued me, so I did some more research into it. Once I read the Originality Pact and TOS, I was really interested; I liked the priorities Squidoo had, and the friendly, easy-to-read manner in which the TOS was written (first time I have ever been able to read one of those and understand it, and even be entertained by it!). After that, I eagerly joined!
You mention in your bio that you love reading, writing, and drawing and, indeed, your lenses reflect those interests very clearly. You also say you’d love to be a novelist. Any special pre-novel topics on your lensmaking list? Yes, I would love to write some lenses on pre-novel topics, and on the things I learn as I progress in my writing. This might include initial brainstorming for ideas, organizing thoughts, coming up with suitable names, dealing with writer’s block, and so forth. I look forward to sharing what I have learnt so far in my writing!
What can Squidoo do for you? Squidoo is doing several things for me! In part, it serves as a good writing exercise for me, especially when writing lenses in response to given prompts. I also enjoy sharing my thoughts and opinions on various topics, and sharing some of the things that I have learnt in my life. And of course, if I make any money on the side that would be a welcome bonus!
