Trying This Again

This is my latest attempt at a blog. Perhaps this one will be more successful since I'm home more than before.

I am the voice of Jodi, Josie & Baby - three rowdy little dogs, all with some pomeranian in them (Sugarbaby's the only pure-breed pom); and I am also an aspiring writer. We're all trying to get me published. So far, we've been unsuccessful.

I write fiction. Specifically, fantasy, horror & romance, all wrapped into one messy package. May even have a little sci-fi thrown in once in a while.

I've been writing since I was a kid but have been interrupted by life; things like school, work, family all have a way of pushing writing to the side.

I'm not a good writer. In fact, I suck big, ol' donkey 'nads. Every time I think I have a great idea, someone's already done it much better than I ever could.

I joined an online writer's group only to find everyone on there is much better than I am and I have nothing to contribute. It's depressing, I tell you. But I'm still trying. Rejections come in faster than submissions. In fact, I think I've gotten more rejections than I've made submissions. Not sure how that happened, but in my warped space-time continuum, it's possible.

So, we'll see how this goes. Now that I can't work outside the home anymore, I need some sort of contact with the outside world. This blog should be it. It'll probably never be read by anyone but me, but hey, at least I'm doing something.

  1. Don't give up. You haven't said anything all of us have felt most of the time. We all write because we want to. Or need to. I suppose there are people who don't want, but are compelled to write. It doesn't matter. Just keep at it. I'm pulling for you.
