Teaser

Remember how I once said something about writing a book? I think that was years ago, right?

Well, I am still working on it. It is such a process! I only have three or four hours a week to write (technically, I could have much more but there are obstacles—AKA LOST, Grey’s Anatomy, AI, and thank heavens all that Bachelor nonsense is over), so my pace has been slow.

But there is an end in sight and I am getting increasingly excited about the end product. I’ve grown attached to my main characters and am eager to write their happy ending (or not so happy ending for some of them). I am also eager to get published. I am trying not to get my hopes up (getting published is so hard), but I’m afraid they’re already sky high.

Calling myself an “author” would be sooooo cool.

I thought I’d give you a little taste of what I’ve been doing. Tomorrow I will post my first chapter. There, you will meet Kaitlin, the heroine of the story. I love her. She has layers.

When you read, keep in mind that this book is intended for teenage girls. Also keep in mind that this is my first book so don’t judge me too harshly. I fully intend to become a more skilled writer over time.

I'm so excited! I wish I had the patience or the imagination to write a book. I think it would be fun.
