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.

Hi Everyone! 

Happy Monday!

I finished another Picture book draft!  Yay for me.  This one I am actually going to try to illustrate.  I'll keep you posted on how that goes. 

How was your weekend?  I hope you had the opportunity to get some writing done.  I hope this week you hit the ground running (as far as writing goes)!  Have a great start to your week!  Here are a few quotes to get you going:

"A writer is, after all, only half his book.  The other half is the reader and fromthe reader the writer learns." - P. L. Travers

"I write when I'm inspired, and I see to it that I'm inspired at nine o'clock every morning." - Peter De Vries

"The writer, when he is also an artist, is someone who admits what others don't dare reveal." - Elia Kazan

"The true function of a writer is to produce a masterpiece and no other task is of any consequence." - Cyril Connolly

I had a great weekend, Maeve! I attended a one-day writers' workshop on Saturday and learned a ton of stuff I can apply to my writing, starting immediately!

I really like the Peter De Vries quote; it reminds us that as with so many things, we can CHOOSE our creative mindset.
