I have always admired writers and their ability to tell stories. I’ve enjoyed a love for reading since I was a young girl, (yes, I’m hinting I’m not on the youthful end of the maturity slide), and have recently gotten the opportunity to chase a dream of writing. A dream to tell the stories that have been bottled up in my thoughts, dreams, and life experiences.
I am joyously working on the first book of a series, and I can do this with much thanks to the man in life. My attempts to writing previously all ended in getting just a few chapters in, and then *poof*, life got in the way and the files were lost, deleted, or crashed. Writing, today, is my life. I’m fortunate.
Here I hope to share in my experiences as I step further in chasing my dream. In just a short time, I’ve discovered just how much work goes into creating that story that has you falling in love with the characters, or wishing they’d fall in a steaming pile of elephant dung. (Typically, I would have chosen entirely differently wording…but we’ll save my colorful dialogue for story time.) I also hope to learn from others, possibly you, on the do’s and don’t’s of becoming an author, an inspiration, a dream catcher.
A new day is a new story…look for it in life.
