And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible things are happening every day!
I'm starting a writing blog because I have some impossible dreams of my own, and I am just "daft and dewy-eyed" enough to expect them to come true! I want to write books for children.
I am not very far on this particular road of dreams. I have written articles for a variety of magazines, ranging from Odyssey to The Dollar Stretcher and I have done a lot of freelance work through the internet. While I have written for many years, this journey really began in 2007 when I decided that I should write articles and magazines should publish them. My first submission was so far from perfect that I was not even sent a rejection letter. It was, however, the beginning of my foray into the world of magazine publishing...an adventure that I am loving!
A few months ago I had another thought: I should write books for children and someone should publish them. I have since sent out a couple manuscripts, but I have yet to see the magic. Still, I am undaunted. It took me a while to learn to write for magazines and I expect it will take a while to figure out books. I would love to have you join me in this new adventure! Leave a comment and let me know who you are and where to find your blog!
I still continue to write articles. In fact, on this blog I will sometimes post writing tips I've learned. You might also find writing announcements, book reviews, publisher spotlights, agent tips, book giveaways and introductions to other authors. Have you recently been published? I would love to highlight new authors too. You'll also hear about my writing experiences. Anything that fits the writing theme fits this blog.
Welcome to my world.
