I have loved writing since I first learned how to write. I spent many nights on my top bunk, leaning over into the nightlight-light to fill countless notebooks with stories. I don’t remember any of them, thankfully, because I am pretty sure the stories were all terrible!
When I was ten, I went to my first Writer’s Conference. It was hosted by the local schools and featured several authors. I knew then that this was what I wanted to do. My teen years were spent writing angsty poetry and filling up notebook after notebook with what my life would look like if I was a famous singer and toured with all the great bands at the time.
I’ve started hundreds of stories, but get hung up on the plot every.single.time. It’s something I’m working on and hoping to get better at so I can finally finish a novel. I’ve also started NaNoWriMo many times, but my story always fizzles out around Day 5.
