I have no idea what I am doing. What I do know is that if I do nothing, ten years will have gone by and I will be exactly where I am now, only ten years older! So, here goes.
The simple truth is that I took a writing class a few years ago and I wrote my first children's book. I also wrote a poem, and began a YA story based upon an adventure I had as a child.
Then, nothing. However my children's story has been simmering and percolating in my subconscious, and I can no longer quiet the persistent knocking of this little book. It needs to come out. Now. It needs to be seen.
I expect that this blog will be cathartic for me, and that through my writing I will be able to quiet the voices of my critics, my saboteurs and my judges. I also hope that the exercise of blogging will help me flex my writing muscles and give me the confidence I need to keep submitting my story, and that it will eventually be picked up and become a "real book." Perhaps I will self-publish.
For now, I will simply write.
