Hello and welcome to my first blog ever. :) I've titled this A New Beginning because for me it is. I've blogged before on LiveJournal and even written a whole lot of slash over there, but now I'm trying to branch out and make a new place for myself. I hope you'll come along for the ride.
My blog will consist of updates on what I'm doing, how I'm feeling, things in the present, things in the past, things I like, things that piss me off, and more than likely a bunch of whining and ranting on occasion. I'm currently trying to break into the m/m romance publishing world but as of yet, haven't had the courage to submit anything to be published. BUT my first foray into the unknown has finally begun.
I'm a member of the m/m romance group on GoodReads and I've recently put myself on the line to actually show people an example of my original writing. Talk about nerve-wracking and heart attack-inducing. It's called Hot July Days and here's the premise: people from the group post a pic and write a letter to an unknown author to have them write a story. The stories will all go into an anthology at the end. I've posted a pic before and had the lovely Selah March write me a beautiful story, but low and behold, this time I volunteered to actually write one. What was I thinking?
The subject is something near and dear to my heart -- being a middle-aged groupie for the past few years -- rock stars. At the moment I have about 5,600 words written and I'm not quite done - trying to decide if the ending needs a big, gratuitous sex scene or if I can tone it down a bit and still get some steam. The deadline is June 21st so wish me luck and thanks for stopping by.
PS - if anyone has any suggestions on how to "pretty up" this blog, I'd really appreciate the help. :D
