A lovely group of blogger buddies is encouraging us to share our writerly Origins. I am going to approach this fest analytically (I am a math teacher after all) I plan to visit as many as I can and tally how many of you all started your writing journey as:
- youngsters, 0-tween
- teenagers, 13-19
- young adults, 20-35 or
- oldies but goodies, 36+
As my kiddies grew and didn't need me so much anymore, I pulled out my story & finished it. I researched online how to get published. Why not? That is when I found out what I had written was undesireable Chick Lit and in terrible form!
I have learned so much since then and written another novel which I've been editing my butt off. Editing is like raising children - as soon as you conquer one challenge, another comes up. But I think I'm getting close to seeing my baby graduate!
Looking forward to reading about your roots in writing!
I will post the results of my data collection on Friday!
Don't forget about the "It's getting hot in here" blogfest tomorrow <3
And for all you campaigners out there, the first challenge is Wednesday, 2/15!
