I used the same intro on a different site! LOL My name is Kim, and as the title says, I live in Washington State. Tacoma/Seattle area to be more specific. I've been taking the Children's & Teens Writing course through the Institute of Children's Literature since August of 2008. My time is spent on the course so I don't have anything published yet. I never seem to run out of writing ideas. Just time in which to jot them down! I'm in hopes of revising at least one of the homework assignments, submit it to magazines and then get to work on my book(s) that I've started as rough drafts and let sit. Nice to meet all of you!
