Last week, I introduced myself as a writer. Not an aspiring writer. Not “I want to be a writer.” Not “Well, I write on the weekends.” A writer.
I am a writer. How cool is that?!
Polishing off my 101,000 word manuscript earned me that title, and by golly, I am going to use it. In fact, it served as a catalyst for a long series of events, including rebooting my social media presence, launching this website, and frantically combing through “Acknowledgments” at Barnes and Noble for three hours to compile a list of potential agents. Oh, and this blog post.
I wanted to be able to share this process with all of my family, friends, and fans, so keep checking back for updates. I am starting to send out submissions this week, so fingers crossed!
And in case anyone asks, I’m officially a writer.
