My name is Jamie Lyn Weigt. I am a paralegal by day and a writer
by night always, and I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota with my husband and our many cats. I’m a proud geek and feminist who loves binge-watching television shows, playing video games and board games with friends, riding my hybrid road bike on trails and in traffic, attending fandom conventions, and now, blogging.
I’ve been working on my debut novel, Finding Dragons, the first in what I’m calling my Dragons Trilogy, for awhile now. I first decided to create this blog at the very end of December 2015 to report my weekly writing progress, but now Writing Dragons has morphed into something else entirely, where I feature amazing dragon art and artists, and also talk not only about Finding Dragons but my other writing as well. In 2016 I started a new cyberpunk tale called Neeka’s Story that I worked on with the help of writing prompts from the WordPress Discover Challenge each week.
I used to make it a point to post every day — from the beginning of this blog in January 2016 until the end of October 2016, I’d managed to post about one dragon artist I’d found on the internet (with accompanying art), or to post some of my original writing, or at the very least to post a beautiful landscape image of an “empty sky” when I happened to miss a day — but now, starting in 2017, I have to take a different tack.
Nowadays, you will find one post per week featuring an artist and their dragon artwork, as well as an update to what I’ve been up to — except for April, because I’ve decided to do the daily AtoZ Challenge once again! You will find my Theme Reveal post on March 20th, and then a new post each day (except Sunday) throughout April following my theme. Enjoy!
One of my favorite artists creates beautiful dragon
figurines and necklaces that I simply adore (like this May Birthstone Dragon), so you’ll probably see a lot of work by How Many Dragons? creator Lindy Briggs while you’re here. She’s given me kind permission to use her images to decorate my site, so you should definitely go check out the How Many Dragons? Etsy shop, and support her by buying yourself a little dragon companion! You can also see all of the How Many Dragons? I’ve shared by clicking this link to the tag.
Finally, this image is my own personal logo. The gold dragon was created for me by an artist many, many years ago, and I combined it with the snapdragon to honor my late mother-in-law. I love to put it on everything from business cards to holiday cards I make for my family, and who knows what I’ll use it for in the future.
Thank you for visiting my site. Stay creative!
