In past, I was loathe to admit my age–couldn’t stand the thought of getting older. Now, I accept what’s inevitable; it is what it is. (Sure, I could stand to be free of the wrinkles and sagging skin, but that’ll be taken care of one day, LOL.) The point is: I’ve been writing a good 25 years . . . a quarter of a century . Who’d have ever imagined it would take that long to get published?
But you know? Some writers may be published within a year of starting their first book, others take time (years) to hone their craft. I truly believe there are no coincidences and that things happen when the moment is right. Everything in its time.
Looking back at early writing, I saw good ideas and not-so-good authoring.
Looking back at me, I saw good intentions and not-so-good judgment.
I may not (yet) possess the networking and technical skills to have a dynamic and popular blog, but I do (now) have one . . . so I’m taking baby steps and toddling forward. I hope you’ll take my hand and totter with me.
Here’s to an awesome future for all aspiring and established writers. May we develop in our crafts, find joy in our hearts, and keep benevolence in our souls.
I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.
So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects).
It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.

Hi. It’s WordPress. It’s fairly easy to use, even though I’m having some issues (but that’s because I’m not technically savvy . . . yet). The support / staff are very helpful and quick to respond.

Look around for ideas, but create a blog that represents “you”. Good luck!
