The Novice Writer

I've alluded to it. Hinted maybe. It's even written as the last line of my bio. Yep, take a peek at the right hand corner of this blog.

I'm an aspiring writer!

Writing for my blog these last seven years has only been a testimony of my quilting journey. A couple of years ago a new journey opened for me. Writing Christian fiction. Years ago I dabbled with some writing. I was even published in a Christian magazine. But children and homeschooling took most of my time and writing went by the wayside. The only writing I did was for my two blogs.

The kids grew up, married and left the nest, and all of a sudden I didn't know what to do with myself. A story formed in my mind and I sat down at the computer and started writing. For hours, days, weeks. It's probably not the best writing. I have forgotten so many of those pesky grammar rules. But the words just flowed and I recorded them. When that one was done another story came and, again, I just wrote it all down.

So while I may not be the best writer around, I braved myself up and started a new blog. Maybe just for practicing. But I'd love for you to pop over and join me there.  I titled it The Novice Writer because, obviously, I am a novice.

If you come over, and if you are so inclined, can you do me a favor? I'd love for you to leave a comment. Just so I know that everything is working :-) You can follow by email, but the posts will also show up on this side bar when there is something new.

Thanks! You guys are the best.
