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.

My Premier!

OK, so maybe the title is a little grand, but I thought it sounded good. And it's appropriate. You see, this is my initial foray into the world of blogging.

Why am I blogging? Do I think I have anything particularly interesting to say?

Honestly? No. Not particularly. Not yet, anyway. But I will.

So why are you still reading?

I'm a writer. A romance/women's fiction writer. That's what I do in what little spare time I have. I have one novel completely written, almost completely edited. Right now I'm researching publishers and agents -- trying to decide which is the better direction for me to go. At this moment, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.

An agent would have access to more publishers, but I'm told many agents prefer a client who's already been published. With my particular novel, it might be easier to sell directly to a publisher, but the number of choices is reduced because I'm unagented.

What to do? I'm still deciding.

In the meantime, I've got four other novels in the beginning stages. One I'm currently actively working on (will be participating in another BIAW with it next week), eighty-five pages into it. #2 I'm further into writing, but I've stalled. I'm not sure why. I think I may participate in another BIAW with it to see if it might give me a jump start.

The other two are floundering in the water, not quite going down for the third time. I've put them aside for now.

Anyway, if nothing else, my blog will serve to give my poor CPs' ears a break from my ranting.

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.
