I'm a writer...took me a long time to be able to say that out loud. Until today actually.
I'm a writer (yep...I said it).
I've been writing most of my life; there are few things that bring as much joy as seeing the words in my heart coming alive on the page. My first novel and short story collection will be published in early 2019 (yes...that's terrifying).
In my spare time I read books with real pages, binge watch documentaries, craft witty posts for Facebook and work way too hard at finding new ways to avoid exercising.
Sometimes the hardest part of writing is feeling solitary in the pursuit of that dream. Sometimes we just want to find a community where we can share ideas, receive feedback and finally see that we aren't alone.
Does that sound like you? If it does then feel free to find your community here. Interact with me and other writers through comments on the blog. Or email me...I'm always happy to meet a fellow writer!
Very soon we will also have a writer's forum area where you can meet other writers, share ideas and find the community we all need.
This journey is new to me. After years of fearing failure (and success) I'm finally ready to pursue the life of a working writer. And, lucky you, you get to come along for the ride.
I'll be blogging about the highs, lows and in betweens of writing. I'll share my process, my progress and I'll even share some pointers. I welcome you to participate with comments or by contacting me directly. I don't bite. Promise.
I love words, I love writing and I'm so happy you've decided to let me share that love with you.
