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.

I dipped my feet into 12x12! 
 

Actually, my toes in 12x12!  Time to take on the challenge.  I do have some stories that I have been working on and several more ideas in my head waiting to get on paper. Writing Picture Books is a challenge in itself.  Now, to add writing one a month into the scheme of things 'UPS' the challenge.  There is no magic formula for writing.  At least, not one that I have discovered.  So, time to see if I can hold up to the challenge.  I used to think that my goal was to be published, but I am looking at my goal in a new light.  I now keep a picture of a child reading a book on my desk.  That is my new focus, to one day see a child with my book, opened in their hand, excitedly reading away!

Has anyone else signed up for the challenge? 

Happy Writing!

No, I haven't signed up. I attempted this challenge a previous year (before there were packages and prices), but didn't get the job done. You've seen my other goals for 2014, and they'll keep me busy enough!

By the way, I am trying to follow you on Twitter :)
