The Little Project That Can... (Hopefully)

April 15, 2010

I wrote my first book in 6th or 7th grade. As cheesy as it was (and believe me, it was CHEESY) I loved doing it and still have it to this day. I didn't realize it then, but I had found my other life-long passions. Since then I have continued to write off and on.

In 2002 or 2003 and idea came to me. I didn't put much into it and didn't pay much attention to it. But instead of the idea going away it grew. Before I knew it I had the idea of a historical novel. I threw myself into researching my time periods that were going to be used and had a blast doing it. I was making notes on scenes, character development, outlines... everything. I even began writing the first section.

Then I stopped...

When I got pregnant with my first daughter everything came to a halt. Suddenly there was no time to immerse myself in research and writing. The birth of my second daughter was no different. However,the desire to write this book never left me. So I have decided that I need to get back to it. It may mean going at a snail's pace, but I don't care. I have decided that I am going to unpack it all and finish what I started. Here goes nothing...
