Okay, so this is the part I hate the most about joining a forum...the introduction. So let's just get this out of the way. Hi kids, as you can see my "name" is Sapheyerblu, but you can call me Christine. I'm probably a lot older than most of you in here as I'm in my 40's, but I'll try to keep up. LOL I've been writing for more than 20 years now, having been published once in print and several times online. I've got 3 e-books under my belt but nothing to sing and dance about. Working on number 4, but I've been doing so for about 3 years now. I'm heavily sarcastic, but that happens to those of us who have survived motherhood (almost...one more to go). I love writing short stories, poetry, and pretty much anything else I can come up with. I have several blogs in my name, but the problem is that I got fed up with life in general and I haven't updated any of them in months. I started out writing short stories and was getting into novel writing (actually finished NaNoWriMo in 2007), but started doing a little ghost writing on the side to pay some bills. Before I knew it, the article writing gigs were coming in fast and furious and my creative side just kind of shut off. Now, I'm looking to find my way back to my first love; fiction. I'm in dire need of help and I guess that's how I ended up here. Now that I've bored you all to death, I'll end this piece. Thanks for being here and letting this old broad in the room.
