I've been writing curriculum and academic papers for many years. Although I've always had, in the back of my mind, the idea of writing a novel. I try to learn one new thing each year of my life. This year I chose fiction writing. Oh, my, what a completely new endeavor. I love seeing the creation come to life. It is fascinating to see characters and plot develop a life of their own. I do believe I'm hooked on fiction. As of October, I'm 50k words into a 70k to 90k fantasy sci-fi novel. There is time travel so I think it is Sci-fi, but also Greek and Scandinavian gods or spiritual beings. Good to be here.
