My journey to be an author

My other writer site is down, and I’ve been getting impatient… I’ll move posts back when it’s back up.

If you read my other blog, you know that I have a dream to be a published author. It’s been there since I was in high school. Back then, being an author was not an acceptable career goal, so it was shelved until I “rediscovered” creative writing last year.

Recently, I applied to study Creative Writing at Tabor College in Adelaide. Well, today I received confirmation that I’ve been accepted!! It’s quite scary – in some ways it means it’s time to take my writing seriously instead of simply dabbling… it seems “real”.

Some other things have happened recently too. In March, I participated in the Chapter Book Challenge and wrote the first of my Jimmy James stories. My kids have been reading what I’ve written so far and the verdict is in – it needs to be longer. So I have more research to do about Magic Lanterns and their operators and what life was like. I love research.

I have also recently signed up to an Author Blog Challenge for next month. Another reason I want my site back up! Especially as I want to start scheduling some regular posts. With this challenge in mind, I would like to know what you would like to read about.

I’m looking forward to sharing my journey with you 🙂

    I’ve been thinking about doing that challenge.. But not sure I have the time.
    I love reading about other authors journeys … And general stuff that makes me think.
