    My Ideal Audience Member

    Today’s assignment for Blogging 101 is to describe who your ideal audience is.  I’m game. This will stretch me a little bit since I have never fully thought about who my ideal audience would be.  I just always dreamed of having an audience.  🙂 Well, let me start of with what I would love (and really want) in my audience: A writer – this may seem a little obvious, but this doesn’t quite mean the same as published (look bellow).  I call myself a writer since I write everyday and I view it as my career.  I would love if someone like me is in my audience right now! A…

I am here because I feel the need to share the way I…

    This is my Fight Song.. well blog… :)

    So this song has gotten a lot of love within the recent weeks.  I love this song…  I know I have a lot of fight still in me.  I can’t just give up because life gets hard. I know my goal of being a published author is going to be an uphill battle. I know this. I will have a lot of things against me but I will push though it… not just for me, but for my daughter. I want her to show her to reach for the stars. There is a small part of me that wishes that i had pushed myself a little bit more before she…

    Goal Statement

    So, for the people that have been following me for a while know that I often post a goal statement.  I tend to do one at the beginning of the year and then another one sometime midway through.  For me, posting my goals out to the world holds me accountable to them.  (I have this odd thing about when I tell someone about what I plan to do and I don’t do it, I feel REALLY guilty and that makes me get it done.) So this isn’t going to be glamours or anything exciting, but just me sharing what I hope to achieve by the end of the year. {Side…

    Finally! Sucess!

    Okay, since I haven’t directly posted anything today and this is a late night post, please bare with me. I will fill you a little bit before getting to the meat of the post. Almost every year since high school,  I have tried NaNoWriMo  (National Novel Write Month). Every year but last year (since I had a one month old and my husband was in a different state for training all of November.) And almost every year, I came up short or failed all together. This was the first year I tried Camp NaNoWriMo. I tried in April but I bounced between projects  (I couldn’t settle on one project to…
