I wrote my first story when I was in 6th grade.   It was a sequel to Jack and The Beanstalk.  My teacher loved it, and that was the first day of the rest of my life as a writer.  I’ve written off and on throughout my life, but I haven’t been able to seriously pursue writing ie. write every day with the purpose of sharing my work with an audience till last fall.  

I hope to finish the first draft of my first novel within the next year.  In addition, I have some other projects I’m working on.  One of these projects is NaPoWriMo.  You can learn all about what that is  here.  Due to time constraints, I will only participate on Fridays.  I will be posting the poems I create over these next few Fridays in a section on this blog called (surprise, surprise)… “Poems.”  I am also participating in NaNoWriMo‘s Camp NaNoWrimo this year, using it as my inspiration to diligently work on my novel on a daily basis.  Some other things I will be working on are short stories, and perhaps an essay or two will show up here.  I hope you will enjoy them all.
