Hi, I'm Holly. I live in the Pacific Northwest - way out in the boonies - and am rather hermit-like by circumstance as well as choice. I am part of a very literary family and have been writing since I was six or seven. Since I was about 11 or 12, my greatest ambition was to write books...and I still have that dream. However, I am a married mom of two preschool age children and I have a full-time job. I'm also going to college full-time in a mad dash to complete my BA in English, so it gets pretty crazy at times! I'm in the process of writing my first novel (two chapters in) and have unfortunately encountered that most difficult of obstacles, writer's block. I went looking for resources that might help and I found this site. Wow! What a great resource! I'm hoping that by connecting with other writers, I can get past this block and also enjoy the writing of others, as well as help when and where I can!
