So, this is it. One more thing I will do to push myself one little step closer to achieving my goal. The first time I remember acknowledging my dream to become an author was in third grade. I entered a writing contest and, to my dismay, I actually won. Took my family of four out to dinner. It was then that I realized the joy that writing can bring. I had fun writing that little story and as a result, I was rewarded.
Do something you love and get paid for it? Sounds perfect to me.
Now, that payment can come in many different forms; it doesn't have to be cash. Money would be nice, but more than anything, I just want to have fun with this. I want to create something that someone else will truly want to read. Someone outside of my already amazingly supportive friends and family.
So....with that said, here is where things stand today: I have completed the first draft of a YA paranormal novel and am currently working on revisions. My *goal* is to complete this round of revisions by the end of May, 2011.
Let's hope this blog helps to keep me accountable to that goal.
If you are reading this very first post, you probably fall into one of those amazingly supportive categories aforementioned. Thank you!
