I won Nano!

OK, so Nano wrapped up almost two weeks ago, but I had to proclaim it to the Word Press world. I won, I won, I won! I’ve participated in the National Novel Writing Month for six of the last eight Novembers, and this is the first time I actually hit the 50,000 word goal.

I’m currently working on turning the raw material into a novel. That appears to be much harder than writing the original 50k+ words. I wouldn’t have guessed that before, but now I know.

Hello world!

That was as good a title as any. I haven’t had a web presence in years, so “Hello, World, this is me.”

Since my focus is on writing for children and young adults, this blog will focus on my journey. In future posts I’ll talk about what I’m working on, what I’m struggling with, what I’ve sent out to editors, all that fun writing stuff.

I also intend to include some reviews of children’s books and movies. Can’t resist the movies. 

This will be an adventure.
