Writing has always been something I've done whether on paper or just in my head. Sometimes I'd rewrite stories I'd read or movies I'd watched to make them "better." Other times characters appeared in my mind fully formed insisting I write down their exploits. Over the years, after having friends back away slowly when I start talking about the people who only exist in my head and others who pretend to be interested, but soon their eyes glaze over and drool forms at the corners of their mouths, I began to wonder if I was crazy as I spoke about imaginary men and women that only I heard. Then I met other people like me. I wasn't crazy after all. I was a writer. What a relief.
I hope you’ll join me on my journey as I wend my way through the
trials and tribulations of balancing the day job, writing along with its
inevitable rejections, and blogging. Each Monday, I'll be posting about writing
and life in general, Wednesdays will be about what I'm currently reading, and
each Friday I'll be posting, to paraphrase Oprah, what I know for sure. I
also hope to have guest bloggers at least once a month on Wednesdays.
feel free to comment. I'll be checking back in the evenings on the days
that I post.
