Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Busy Busy Busy . . .

I can't believe I actually missed days of blogging! But that's what happens when there's a family standing behind you, clamoring for your attention.

OK. So maybe they weren't clamoring. Maybe, for the most part, they were even ignoring me. But that didn't mean I didn't have a lot to do. Boring stuff. Household stuff. Laundry. Cleaning. Ho-hum.

No hiking this past weekend. Not only had Tropical Storm Ivan flooded the mountains, but we had oodles of kid stuff over the weekend. Definitely a "Mom" weekend for me. I did have some good stuff happen, though.

First, my husband's business trip was postponed. That's great for two reasons. He'll actually be here during the kids' Fall Break (originally, he was to be in Vegas that week), and now I don't need a babysitter to attention the Georgia Romance Writers Moonlight & Magnolias Conference. WOO HOO!

Second good thing? My badgering worked. I finally broke my husband down, and he ordered a laptop computer for me, calling it an early Christmas present. I can deal with that, especially since last year, my present was late. It all evens out. I'm sitting on pins and needles as I type because my new toy is scheduled to arrive today. And I won't be certain until I hold it in my hot little hands, but I think I'll call it "Rocky". Don't ask why.

Last good thing -- started the Book in a Week yesterday. My goal is 35 pages. I actually got six written last night, and had a character pop up out of nowhere. And what a character she is. I'm not giving details here . . . suffice it to say her cameo appearance was a blast to write, and I think she may have to pop in periodically.

I'm a wife, a mom, an operating room nurse, a writer, a hobby photographer, and a music lover who knits and crochets. And I'm fairly certain I've lost my mind.
