So, I'm not sure how this really works or if anyone will even see it, but I am giving it a shot anyway. I have decided to start a blog about pursuing my dream of becoming a published author. I've always prided myself on leading by example and as a high school English teacher, I spout "follow your dreams" all the time. It's time that I do the same. In the last five years, I have written three full length novels. The first, I threw away...it was garbage metaphorically and literally. The second, I still love, but it's sitting on my desktop marinating until I can make it better. Now, I have completed my third, which I really feel is the best I've ever written. Did I mention I majored in Creative Writing and have written dozens of short stories? No, I didn't. Anyway, this is my blog. My intent is to survive the trail of rejection I must travel down to get published. I know I must grow a thick skin to take the no's and the "this is an extremely subjective business", but I have faith that there will be one. And after all, it only takes one. So, enjoy my journey with me. :) Have a great night!
