When I was younger, I wrote in a journal every day. I was obsessed with making a little keepsake of happenings, almost a scrapbook before scrapbooks were cool. Now I spend my days in front of a computer and its hard for me to think about writing, let alone writing in a journal. Plus, now that I'm older and I have a child, I find that I definitely go through phases. Sometimes I need to write all the time, and sometimes my thoughts stay internal. The idea of a blog intrigues me, so here it is.

This blog is a place for me to write about the writing process, things that interest me, fascinating things my boy says, and whatever else that comes to mind when I'm in one of those writing phases.

“You don't start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it's good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That's why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” 

― Octavia E. Butler

“I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they're going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there's going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up. The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don't know how many branches it's going to have, they find out as it grows. And I'm much more a gardener than an architect.” 

― George R.R. Martin
