I've spent the last eighteen months of my life as a wannabe writer. I can tell you, quite honestly, that it's not been a period of my life that I'd describe as fun. That sentence also has the unfortunate side effect of making it sound more miserable than it has been, and I don't intend that to be the message here. I'm content - a little bit on the depressive side, but still up for the fight.
This writing blog is one of the ways I've chosen to try to cope with the ups and downs of that fight as an unpublished writer, and to share some of it with others (not for their misery, but hopefully for some degree of interest).
