I suppose an introductory post is in order

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.

Congratulations on your progress on your novel. I am sure that your hard work and dedication will pay off! Just keep at it and keep posting about your progress! During period of waiting to hear back from editors you should keep posting and let us know about any other projects you start working on while your novel finds a home. :)
