Creating a new blog is not what I set out to do today.
I started out my Saturday taking my dog to obedience class (we don’t like to follow the rules in my family), and when I returned home I decided writing sounded more fun than cleaning.
So I began editing Chapter 1 of my WIP (work in progress), which I will now refer to as, “The Book.” Yes, I feel it needs to be capitalized because at this point, a year and a half after its inception, I believe it’s taken on a life of its own.
I had wanted to write a post on my editing & revising process for my existing website (portfolio for my freelance writing business), and as I worked on editing The Book, I realized I need to invest some time into a stronger author platform. I want to get people excited about The Book, and maybe that’ll give me the extra push I need to finish the damn thing.
All that to say, this blog was born.
So here’s a little about me:
- 20-Something Lady
- I’m a Registered Nurse and yes, I work full-time
- Dog Mom of two rambunctious boys, Jax & Opie (comment if you get the reference!)
- In a serious relationship with the man who makes me believe in the phrase ‘other-half’
- I’ve been writing since I was a little girl, and while I currently write and have been published professionally, The Book will be my first novel
