Well, I've tried this before, haven't I? I began a blog once, years ago. I posted once, then promptly forgot about it. Well, I could always make excuses such as my father's illness. It's true that he was sick and died shortly after the creation of said blog, but you would think that having the blog, having the outlet to express my feelings would have been a reason to blog. But you see, I hadn't quite developed the habit or the discipline to blog regularly so I never went back to it. Recently, when a friend mentioned that I really should be blogging, I relented and said, sure why not? So with Jenn's help (Thank you, Jenn!), here I am.

Notice that my blog calls me a wannabe writer. Well, I'm actually a writer already, at least I like to think so. I'm just not yet published. Note I said, yet, as the dreamer in me tries to stay focused and keep my eye on the prize. I will use other blog posts for my list of a million reasons (excuses) why I'm not yet published, so I won't dwell on that now. Also, my next blog is to be on my New Year's Resolutions, which of course include guess what? Getting published! J

Although most of my blogging will revolve around writing, I suspect you'll see other areas of my life bleed in. That's just the kind of person I am. I tend to be an open book when I write, and blogging is, most certainly, writing. You'll get to know my family, which includes my husband and my three children. You'll probably end up knowing about the music I listen to, or the athletic teams I follow. I'll try not to get too political, but those of you who know me, know I will from time to time. I'm quite opinionated and occasionally that may show in my blog posts.

But for now, I'm going to leave you wondering why you came to my blog. It's nothing much yet, but I hope over the next several weeks, months or years, you'll come here and get to know me better. I hope you'll see some progress in my writing, and maybe I'll grow as a person in the process. One can only hope.

    Ramblings of a Wannabe Writer

    Aside from being a mother and wife, I'm a reader, a thinker, a dreamer, an eternal optimist... and most relative to this blog, a writer. Here you'll meet the person behind the stories and join me on my road to publication.

    Thanks for coming along for the ride and please come back often!
