First Post

Welcome to my journey!
My goal is to post daily on my writing progress for the purpose of accountability and to encourage fellow writers to keep writing. Chances are, I'll be successful with my goal this summer. The real test will be after school starts in the fall. That in itself could provide some interesting thoughts on HOW TO FIND THE TIME TO WRITE WHEN YOU WORK FULL TIME. Any advice out there in cyberspace?
A dear writing friend has said many times, "You have to give up something if you are serious about being a published writer". She gave up housework. :-) I've already done that so I know I need to limit my TV viewing. I love a good story and have convinced myself that watching my favorite TV shows in the evenings is good for writing--plot, conflict, climax, resolution. Hmmmm? I know I do watch TV and movies with a different eye than I did before I became a serious writer. Moderation in all things.
Wow! I do believe I have provided myself with several topics to write about in future posts. I'd love for you to come along on my writing journey.


  1. Helen!!!!! Welcome to the blogosphere. I didn't get to be your first follower, but I'm your first commenter.

    This is your year, girl! Someone told me so. And God talks to her, so I know it's the truth.

  2. Hi Helen. I'm so glad to see you here on Blogger. Thank you for all you do to help us newbies. I loved the SCBWI meeting tonight. It was very helpful!
