Getting to know me...
Hi there! Welcome to my little corner of the web. Before I dive into the ins and outs of why I started this blog, let me tell you a little about me.
It starts when we're children...That question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" For me, it started first with wanting to be a clown (mmmkay...), then a teacher (I did actually major in this in college before finding a better fit), an artist (discovered I absolutely cannot draw - just a minor detail, I think), or an author (ding, ding, ding!!). I am addicted to the written word - whether it's by reading or writing.
What makes me...me:
As it states on the Home page, I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and a writer. I have been married for ten years to a beautiful man I've known my entire life, I am a mama to a fantastically dramatic and expressive 5-year-old girl, and I have, quite possibly, the most amazing family in the universe.
Finding the writer in me:
As I mentioned, I have loved writing and the written word ever since I was a kid. I love words and making up my own words, which on occasion, I'm sure you'll stumble across such examples as you check out this blog. Since I've been a stay-at-home mom, the idea of "what do I want to be when I grow up?" has been a constant question, hence the title.
I didn't begin seeking opportunities to write professionally until 2010, however, so I'm relatively new to the paid writing world. It's been an interesting experience thus far, and that is the premise under which I started this blog. I wanted a place where I could chronicle what was going on in my writing world, as well as offer me a venue to write about whatever struck my fancy, whenever it struck my fancy. In the land of blogs you're supposed to pick a focus and run with it, but here I ascribe to a more Forrest Gump-ish kind of approach - "You never know what you're gonna get."
I hope you'll wander around a bit, and let me know what you think!
Thanks for stopping by,
