Hello friends.  I'm a writer.  I have written for as long as I can remember; my first really coherent memory is of me asking my mom if I could type my “ducky story” on the then-new family computer.

When I got into high school, a fellow classmate had gotten their book published and that made it all click: maybe I should get my work out there.  I started seriously writing my own book, but I hadn’t gotten the finesse of writing a novel down yet.  I had short stories and snippets of what could be a book, but nothing that could line the shelves of my favorite book shops.

Then comes 2016.  I kept telling people I was writing a book, but all I was doing was writing more snippets.  Developing characters.  Imagining a post-apocalyptic Elven story, but not getting the meat of it written down.  At least, not until NaNoWriMo of 2016.  I finished my 50k, patted myself on the back, and passively started doing revisions all through 2017.  

Then, this year, 2018, I asked myself what I was doing.  Getting a book published had been a dream of mine since high school, but what did I have to show for the last ten years?  Binders full of snippets and one rough draft?  I got my ass in gear and really started the revision process.  

I’m what the podcasters on Writing Excuses call a discovery writer: I don’t outline, I just go.  I get a vague plan for what I’m writing, and then just put words on a page.  Usually, this means the revision process is a really intensive process for writers like me.  It took me most of this year to finally get to where I can send my book out to beta readers.

I had a hiccup in September of this year, though.  Ironically, right when I was revising the part where one of my characters died in my book, my brother also died.  I was really able to breathe life into that part.  Anyone who’s had a loved one pass knows how the rest of my life is going.

And now we’re here.

My computer needs some serious updating.  Ideally, I would like to work between my tablet and my computer, but my computer’s nearing 10 years old now and she’s feeling it.  Being able to use a computer for my writing needs again would be fantastic!
