Beginning

Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Maeve, Thanks for stopping by my blog recently.I just joined SCBWI. I signed up for a retreat so that "story" I had been mulling over had to be thrown on the page in manuscript form. I hope the groups understand. You have to begin somewhere... I love the idea of the book and the cookies. My son just turned one, so he's more into eating his books, but one day we'll be baking cookies together. (Thanks for sharing the story about your mom. A great tribute.)
