My inspiration seems to come a tiny piece at a time, day after day. The focus for this blog is going to be: My Journey from Writer to Author. We all know there’s a difference. An author is published. A writer? Maybe not.

I’ve been working on my first novel for a little over 3 years now. I started writing it on Oct. 3,2008, and believe me, it has really morphed from the first concept.I was thinking of another concept to bring in last night, so I only got about 4 hours of sleep. Oh well. The basic story is in place now, but some of the supporting or secondary characters are going to be antagonists instead of supporters. Especially one prime character that is important to the protagonist. And one minor character (sort of) is going to start out an antagonist and she turns out to be an ally in the end.

This has already been quite a journey, but there’s much to go until I see this book in print. I believe it has great potential, and I believe in my talent. I also believe in my determination and drive. Currently, I am continuing to type the messy first draft back into my laptop in a nice, neat format. I’m actually a very fast typist, but I get sleepy after awhile…just like reading. Not because I’m bored, but I’m sleep deprived usually to begin with, and focusing my eyes on a screen or page for a long time makes me drowsy.

It’s time for me to leave for work. Like most writers, I have to have a day job to support my habit:)
