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.

To boldly go . . .

Yeah, I ripped the title off from Star Trek, but it's fitting.


Because, for the first time ever, I ventured out into the world of blogs by people I don't know.

I've read blogs before. My own. My friends'. People I've met through the many writing groups I read. But I've never just hopped out and read the blogs of people I've never met before.

It was quite the adventure.

It was a little scary.

Seems to me that a blog gives a bit of insight into the way somebody's mind works. I don't know about anybody else, but I don't plan my entries out before I post them. I just open the window and start typing whatever comes to mind. That's probably why my own entries seem a little wandering and disjointed at times.

I stumbled on some very interesting blogs during my journey. Some that made my hair stand on end. Some that had some witty and insightful (there's that word again) thoughts. Some people ranted about politics. Some gave a rundown of their days. Some posted poetry, pictures, and other creative things. And some were almost impossible to follow.

And I'm not just talking about the ones done in different languages.

One thing I did learn during my wandering is that I've only just scratched the surface with what can be done with these things.

So I'm off to learn more about them.

Right after I finish my crit.


  • Yeah, I understand your comments about 'reading the minds of others', so to speak. Sometimes you find scary things out there. On the other hand, sometimes you find some good stuff too. I found this one using the 'next blog' button, so sometimes adventures work out OK.

    By the way, I appreciate the shout out on your last post. I'm glad you were entertained when you visited Yankeebob. I don't plan what I write either, so compliments are extra special. Thanks.

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.
