Writing is something I dreamed of in childhood, but never pursued because honestly it didn't seem like a viable option. I was supposed to get a real job, right?
I quit working full time in 2015, but never quite figured out the writing part. I did freelance editing for a while, but ended up getting a day job again. It turns out that I need a little structure to my days. After some trial and error, I figured out what works for me as far as a schedule and an approach and I got busy writing.
I've been writing pretty seriously for the last year and a half and I love it. I'm working on edits for one cozy mystery manuscript and writing a second. I have lots of ideas zinging around and can't wait to work on them all.
