Scary

So out into the world I go, cyber world that is.  I thought navigating Face Book to be a great adventure two years ago.  I swore I would never become a ‘twit’ but ended up doing just that!  Joined Twitter when I found out BookRix was advertising my writing work there.  Then I was encouraged to ‘blog’, something that sounded very much like what I used to clean up after my kids!  Now I’m here, feeling very much like Christopher Columbus sailing off to find a new world and hoping I don’t sail off the edge of cyber space land into the great void!  I hope to share some of the common sense that life has taught me and stretch my writing experiences.  Want to come along on this journey?  I hope so!

Hello world!

Empty Nest Syndrome lasted about a week before I woke up one morning and remembered I had dreams before I had children. One of those dreams was to write.  During the years of raising the kids and working to pay the bills, I had the opportunity to write.  Business letter, websites, convention brochures, and the occasional newsletter.  Through it all I heard ‘You can really write. You should write a book.”  I would graciously say “Thank You”, never sharing that I secretly wanted to do just that.  Why? Because I didn’t have the confidence I could do it, or would be any good at it.

But it sounded easy enough, even if I knew my chances were one in a million I could ever get a foot in the door. Cruising the Internet one night, I found a little site called “BookRix”.  They encouraged readers as well as beginning authors.  I devoured the books on the site and the more I read, the more convinced I was that I too could do this.

Common Sense told me it would be a long road ahead, and the little voice was right.  But what a ride……….
