I've been a voracious reader the last few years, fantasy or mystery type mostly, but one day woke up realizing I had a story to write. That started about two years ago. After a strong start, I took a year long hiatus, and have just in the last months begun writing again. I'm struggling to "finish" my draft, and beginning to get cold sweats at the concept of attempting to publish when that time comes. Therefore... I am hoping that networking with many like minded people will give me the push and confidence I need to go from here. I work as a 4th, 5th, 6th grade (multiage) teacher, have two cats and a very spoiled Pomeranian, have ridden horses for 17 years, love Zumba and aerobic kickboxing, hate the cold though I live in one of the coldest places out there, and have a very supportive boyfriend who put together my entire writing room. Thanks for having me here!
