Format Aside

cropped-il_570xN.766814934_sern.jpgHi and welcome. This is a blog to share the trials and errors along the way to publishing my first novel. I will be sharing some of my works in progress as well as some short stories and even some poetry I’ve written, (mostly when I’m up all night battling insomnia, so don’t judge). I will also be sharing some interesting articles by other authors I admire and find helpful.
Though I have written for years and even been plotting several novels as well, I have yet to publish.
Last year I participated in NaNoWriMo and completed my first novel but promptly deleted it one week later when hitting “yes” without thinking or reading the full prompt.
I have to admit, I’ve been wallowing ever since and have yet to re-write it.
I have spent the last twenty-five years working as an RN, much of which was spent in the ER. I have many colorful patients to choose from when trying to come up with characters.
I’ve never really had enough time to write when I was working, though I know that’s an excuse when I say that. Now, due to illness, I have “retired” and have all the time in the world and it isn’t any easier.
So this is me folks; inexperienced and insecure, but with a head full of characters I love and their stories that I’ve thought about and plotted for years.
I hope you join me and please leave comments, critiques and even constructive criticism, if given with kindness. Remember, everyone was a novice at one time.
I believe we can all improve by sharing tips and hints along the way.
Welcome again and I hope you enjoy. 🙂
