My Writing

So I thought I would start off my first day on this schedule to actually tell you a bit about my writing history. :)

I have been writing on and off my whole life, well sense I could write anyway. I went to a middle and grade school that put a lot of emphasis on writing, both creative and academic. We had a guy in our school that came I think about once a week. His name was Word Man, he always said "Show, don't tell" Back then I wrote a lot of poems and I had one published when I was in 7th grade I think.

Once I got to high school I wrote a little bit, mainly fantasy back then, some of it is on elfwood. After that I kind of just stopped writing, I'm not entirely sure why.
I kept tabs on a friend from elfwood the lovely Emma Kathryn :) She offered me a lot of advice and answered all of my questions most graciously and I will always be in her debt. Once I went to college i started to think about getting my name out in the writing world. She introduced me to anthology writing and blogging too actually. Because of her I found Static Movement and the lovely Chris Bartholomew. and Pill Hill Press and the lovely Jessy :)
So thank you Emma!

From there I have been published in 6 books, so far. All horror. I am also currently working on a novel which has no name yet. If you have any questions about writing or me please ask so I have topics :)

Have a wonderful day dearies!

That's awesome :) It's pretty cool that you've been published so many times already. I think I need to get my name out there a little more, hehe.

I wish our schools had taught us writing - we maybe had 2 or 3 assignments in creative writing throughout my whole school career!

Hope you have a wonderful new year!

Happy New Year.
You were lucky to be inspired and have friends to make the writing journey with you.
I keep being side-tracked by images of jelly beans. :) This is not doing my non-resolution much good.
