In celebration of my impending birthday, I’m writing a blog about what I’m working on this year.
37 years on this earth and man has it been a ride. 3 marriages, 3 kids, 3 fur-kids. I’m a graduate in the school of hard knocks and getting my masters in life right now.
I’ve always been a writer since I was about 14 years old. The pen and paper were my lifelines. My badge of courage through my turbulent teens. I was a boring kid with a boring life so I chose to create worlds that weren’t so boring. I started writing essays in school and the teachers always told me you should be a writer. You have the talent. I am my own worst critic everything I write of course is shit but that is just my negative nelly talking.
I then worked my way to poetry which was an easier medium for me. The words just flowed.
I didn’t start my first novel until I ran into an idea a few years ago. I had a premise to a story. It never went further than 2 paragraphs but then in a moment of epiphany, I dusted off my folder with my work in it and just started writing. I’m still working on it and it’s a slow process. I only have 6 chapters so far but my characters are still in my head demanding to have their say about things. They won’t let me rest. I could be at work and a line will pop up and it will sit there and bug me until I unload it. They talk in your head. It’s my opinion writers are all schizophrenics 🙂 LOL How else can you explain voice in your head? LOL
OH that’s right, I’m a writer. That’s what we do.
I also decided I was going to write as an indie/self published author. There is a lot of information out there for indies and SP authors. I’ve been blessed to meet some exceptional authors who take the time to talk shop to me. It’s all about networking. I can’t stress that enough.
So following in the footsteps of my writing, book reviewing fell into my lap. Why not do something I love and comment on it to help other authors like me? So needless to say it’s been a whirlwind the last few months. The enormous amount of info about book reviewers is a bit overwhelming when it’s right in front of you but I love a challenge.
So with the patience of some other really good book reviewers and authors I’m reviewing, I’m slowly learning the blog biz:) Thanks to all those who have helped me and continue to help me as I make this journey to my dream.
Now it’s your turn, tell me what your dream is and how are you working to attain it.
As always,
Heather Powers
