Pursuing writing

Ready, set, go!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written for this blog, but I’ve decided to take another stab at it! This time, my focus will be tighter. I’ve written a few random posts that were loosely tied together by the common thread of my New Year’s resolution for 2015, but it still felt a little directionless.

I’m starting over. I’ve decided to pursue my dreams of writing in earnest, so this will be my author blog. I’ve had a few things published—mostly articles and reviews—but since I haven’t published books of my own yet (just pieces included in other people’s books), I guess I’m more “writer” and less “author.” But I’ll get there. I’ve wanted to write novels since I was a teenager. I’m going to make it happen.

My plan is to update once a week. Once that feels comfortable and I have a routine down, I’d like to post more frequently, but I’m taking this one step at a time.

What have you attempted recently that excites you? Have you tried anything new, or something you haven’t tried in a long time?
