Just a Taste...

Okay, so it's 10:41pm & I have a flight at 8am tomorrow, so this is going to be as brief as I can make it.  RWA 2014 was an amazing experience (even if the heat in San Antonio was definitely trying to kill me), and I can't wait to go to the Conference in NYC in 2015.  I met so many wonderful women, all of whom were supportive & encouraging about my desire to write.  That in itself was surprising (although I don't know why, when it's literally a conference about writers, for writers, attended by writers).  Anyway, I'm going to write a longer post about my experience, but I just wanted to express how grateful I am for the opportunity to have even been in the company of these amazing & talented women.  

I'm so excited to get back home & start writing and just delve into this exciting new career opportunity, BUT I'm definitely going to miss the amount of amazingly fluffy pillows (I requested an extra 3 for a total of 6 or 7 pillows) & the super soft bed & snuggly comforter.  Hands down the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever stayed in.  Maybe I can convince my mister to let me buy about 6 small fluffy pillows for my side of the bed?  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

And now...sleep.

PS - I'm also definitely going to miss WhataBurger.  Best.burgers.ever.

Intro I Guess

I decided recently that I wanted to start writing again, and work towards making a career out of it.  There will be a ton of small steps before anything major happens but I'm just thrilled I made the decision; it's incredibly nerve-wracking at the same time.  Thankfully I work a regular 8-5 job M-F, so I have the evenings and weekends to write (and spend as much time as I can with my hubby, also known as "my mister.")

Anyway - this blog is going to be dedicated to my journey towards becoming an author & will feature anything I come across that's helpful to other writers and readers, and I may even be brave enough to post some of my own original work (::gulp::).
