Writing is one of my life's big three: reading, writing and music, in no particular order. My zeal for writing waxes and wanes according to the attentions of my fickle muse. When I first began writing in 2003 the stories just overflowed and my portfolio on Writing.com filled up quickly. I also had about four stories published in online magazines, which was thrilling, as you can imagine. :) As more children arrived, time for writing became more dear and my output became less. Now that four of the five kids are in school my interest has been revived. I participated in 2011 National Novel Writing Month and won, something I haven't tried since 2006. (well, I tried and failed) Now I have a 50k novel that has potential, so I have been working on that. Oh yeah, I also have a Young Adult novel that is finally finished and I'll be shopping that around to agents this year, after my readers give me their thoughts.
