Olympic fever? I have it.
Whether its diving or swimming, winter or summer, running or ribbon dancing: I love the Olympics.
For me, it's the magic of human physical achievement and the unifying nature of competition that gets my pulse racing. I get chills when I think about these athletes and the way they challenge each other for years, refining their skills through competition and contest, until they are the best possible version of themselves. *sound familiar?*
It's similar to the process writers endure in their battle to get published. The same process publishers and agents go through to make and sell the best book possible.
So to all the athletes competing their guts out: thank you. And for all the story tellers and story sellers writing their guts out: thank you.
Keep inspired. Keep inspiring.

Finally, the third book in Kiersten White's trilogy is out today. *throws confetti* She is very active on Twitter and you can follow her here. I ran out to B&N this morning and snatched it up. Isn't it pretty?
I can't wait to find out how this story ends. It's been a fun ride so far. I highly recommend this series.
*Verdict Is In* I loved it! The book was a blast. I really enjoyed the lush and vibrant world Kiersten developed. ENDLESSLY was the cherry on top of a fun and flirty series. I was falling in love with Reth there at the end. His glamour got me, what can I say?

Hello world. Since I'm new to blogging I figure I should begin with a simple greeting.
I'm thrilled to be starting this blog about my adventures in writing. The writing community online is excellent and supportive. I've learned much from all of you so far. As I continue to make progress on my WIP I plan on sharing the 'fun' here.
And being a voracious reader I hope to blog about my favorite books along the way.
So here's to the wacky ride we call writing, reading, editing, and revising. *cheers*
