First Post

I planned months ago to start a blog to chronicle my writing adventures but nothing ever came of it. Lately, though, I find myself blogging in my head about the things I run into on my journey through this novel of mine. So here I am!

I began my novel in April of 2013 after making a list of random, one-lined book ideas. I hadn't written in years, no matter how hard I had tried, and I had missed it terribly. I wrote constantly as a teenager and feared that I'd lost it... Or maybe that I'd never had it in the first place. But I chose one of those quick little ideas one night and started typing. I was astounded by how easily the words flowed from me.

Now, nine months later, I'm nearly finished with chapter 21 and coming very close to the end. This book has been a saving grace for me. It's been a healing aid for the ugliness of anxiety, left behind by the grueling trials of the recent years. I've fallen in love with writing all over again. How did I go so long without it?

It is my goal to self-publish within the next few months. I am very excited to hold my work in my hands, but also reluctant to let this story end. Until then, I will be here, working hard and sharing my thoughts!
