Keep on keeping on

Dear All (or None),

First, let me say a big Thank You for dropping by and reading my nonsense.  You're probably wondering why you should waste your time with me.  Well, let me be the first to tell you that there's really no good reason for it.  I tend to run my mouth and occasionally choke on my foot.  Hopefully I won't have to issue any apologies but I always want to hear your thoughts and opinions, so please, feel free to comment on anything or everything.

Second, let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I'm sure you're just dying of curiosity to know who I am.  Probably not, but I'll divulge anyway.  I'm a writer.  Or at least I like to pretend that I'm a writer.  What are the total number or works I have, you ask?  That's easy.  None.

It's not that I haven't tried, it's quite the opposite in fact.  Rather, I like to write and write and write and essentially produce nothing.  Actually let me rephrase that.  It's not something that I "like" to do as much as something that I find myself always doing.

At this moment in time I have seven - seriously, seven - works in progress.  It's a series of books so I'll continue to delude myself by saying that since they're all tightly related, it's really just one big project that I'm undertaking.  There, I feel better about that now.

In addition to writing, I'm also a full time mom, student, and employee.  Busy doesn't begin to describe it, but writing is something that I LOVE to do and not something that I'm willing to sacrifice.  So I'll keep on keeping on - writing down ideas and plot lines or scrambling out a scene or two - whenever I get the chance.  And maybe, just maybe, one day I'll have something to show for it.

Until then, happy writing!
