I have my own little world, but it's okay - they know me here.

Couple of Things

I got tagged by Candice for this:

When did I start writing...

In all honesty, I must have been about nine. Most of them I made up in my head but some I wrote down. My first submission was to the kids magazine, Highlights. It was rejected so I started that early too LOL.

Highschool was when I started really putting things down on paper. We had an old antique typewriter that I used. It was kinda cool but of course editing was a pain LOL. I made the mistake of throwing most of that work out (I know, I still cringe myself) I should have kept it and now am fervent in my efforts to save work whether I ever plan to use it again or not.

I had my first short story accepted a few months after I started dating my then future husband. It came out in STAR magazine (which doesn't do short stories anymore) and was available at the check-outs in his store. Well, everyone thought I had written the story about him LOL. In truth, I had written it way before him but he got teased so much it was hilarious.

And the rest, as they say is history.


You have to check out this piece on Discipline in writing that Stephanie mentioned on her blog. I thought it was quite true for me at least and nice to know that I'm not the only one thinking the same way.


Karen gets the DQ Strawberry Sundae Lip Balm for her comparison of housecleaning and wips:

"Hmmm, with the way I'm writing my current wip, once I'm finished with the first
draft I'm going to have to organize and rearrange like I have to do with my hall
closet. Both of these things are a mess!!!! But I'm still enjoying the writing
and I still love shoving crap into my closet. LOL "

Loved it. Email me with your snail mail, Karen, and I'll get it out to you.
