Plunging into the World of Writing

     I took a 180 a few years ago--quit my day job as a music educator and plunged into the world of writing. Why? The story in my head was screaming to come out on paper. So I began to write...only to learn how difficult it was to do well. But I was up for the challenge, and the world I've entered is far more fascinating than I ever dreamed it would be.

Today, I find myself running full force with my endeavor. I'm attending writer's conferences, getting weekly online writing tips, writing a weekly column for ldsblogs, chatting in support groups, and plugging away at my novel.  I'm hoping to have something descent to show for it all by 2015. Until then, I'm going to do my best to be my own blogger by updating this blog page with posts about my work and other thoughts about life.

If you are reading this, thank you! I hope to come up with a logical, inspirational, and fantastical plan for this blog. Until then, bear with me!
