I’m originally from beautiful southwest Kansas *cough* but have lived in Texas and Colorado too. I moved to Illinois four years ago, in the far north suburbs of Chicagoland. All my life, as far back as I can remember, I loved to write, and had so many people try to encourage me to do so.
I always knew I was pretty good at writing, but I never took it seriously.
I put it on the back burner for many years, mostly to spend time raising three kids and working a full time job. I still have the full time job (and the kids too) but I’m an empty nester now – so it’s time I stopped putting it off.
I want to talk about the craft of writing here – what drives me to do it, what my hopes and dreams are concerning writing, what lessons I’ve learned, what successes I’ve had. (Hopefully there will be some!)
Feel free to follow along – and comment at will.
Just play nice, k? 😉
