I am starting a new chapter (it is also a good time to let you know that I am a lover of puns) in my writing career. The editing process of my first published book is soon underway, though the journey to that point has been a long time coming. I have been a writer my whole life, but I will finally have the opportunity to share some of my work with the general public and I could not be more excited (and also a little terrified). Writing is a very personal and often private endeavor. Creating characters in your head is one thing, but putting all that information down can be a daunting task, and that's only the beginning of it! It took me about four months to write my novel, and almost two years to get it to where it is today.
The thought of someone else reading my work is a wonderful feeling, but it is hard not to be a little apprehensive of it. I love my characters and my story and I hope that others love it as much as I do. They are all a little part of me, I feel deeply invested in their backgrounds, their individual selves, it's hard sometimes to remember that they are not real, just figments of my imagination! Though I truly believe in the story I have created for them, and I look forward to each and every one of you being able to share in their adventure.
Stay posted, exciting things are happening!
