I begin this blog with a greeting. Welcome! Thanks to any and all who wander onto this site. I plan on not boring you all to tears with my ramblings, but I make no guarantees.
A little about myself. I am a mother of two small children: a smart, dramatic, charming three and a half year old daughter and a rough and tumble 10 month old boy. Adorable pictures of them will undoubtedly appear on this blog from time to time. I can't help it, they are my greatest joy in life.
My greatest passion in life is writing. I have written stories all my life, as far back as I can remember. In my childhood, my writings were usually bad imitations of whatever book I had just read. I believe that has changed, I certainly hope so.
I am currently nearing completion of my first novel. It is YA Fantasy , and brilliant. Kidding. But in actuality, I am really excited about it. It's been so fun to write, and quite thrilling to be nearing completion. This is big for me. I have started two or three novels, but never actually gotten much past 40 pages or so. This book is different. Not only will I finish, but I am going to see this novel all the way through to publication. And I plan to bring any along who wants to join. It should be a unique study on the process of trying to become a published author. It will all be a huge learning experience for me, and I hope that others might learn something from watching me go through it all.
That is why I started this blog. To document for posterity's sake, the journey to publication. So, stick around. I am looking forward to sharing this all with you.
