Started a new project

(Image from an interesting post on Good E Reads)

I hadn’t realized how tied up my brain is with my daughter’s book until last night.

I was really trudging through my writing time, just struggling to add a couple new pages to her story.  It wasn’t writer’s block, nothing that serious, but it was work.  The words were reluctant, difficult, and stubborn.  I got my pages done and then closed the word processor with relief.  Done for the day, whew.

But there was another document open. Continue reading “Started a new project”

Welcome!

It’s been an interesting few months leading up to me starting this blog.

I’ve been a voracious reader and writer for many years now.  It started in High School when friends and I would exchange stories, usually horror stories that involved gory death scenes.

Since then, my problem has been that I get really excited about a project for a few weeks but then I get another idea.  The first idea gets shelved and I start working on the new one.  And repeat.  None of them ever made it past a couple dozen pages before another project came up or life got in the way.

Recently though, I started writing a story for my daughter.  She loves to read, so I thought it would be something fun to do.  She’s been the motivation that got me to dig into a single story and not let go.

It’s been a whole lot of fun and it’s really inspired me to get more serious with my writing.  There is so much more I want to learn about writing, publishing, and developing as a person and a writer.
