There's been a major update and overhaul and the blog has moved. Only posts pre-2015 are on this site. But please check out the new website here.

And It's Go Time

I've done it. I've finally bitten the bullet and decided to really make a go of both my blogs and my writing. So for the next month it's all writing, all the time. Hip-hip-hooray for that!
(Except for FDL. You know -- food, dishes, laundry. Wouldn't want to be hunted down for not feeding my son for a month. :P)

How am I doing this you ask? Well I've given myself an ultimate deadline. My novel will have all the new edits and scenes I want in it from the critiques I received by June 30. In addition I am doing the Author Blog Challenge. Stoked! What am amazing opportunity. I'm going to be blogging every day along with so many other authors from all around the world. I couldn't ask to be in better company.

My earliest memory of writing is in elementary school. I remember writing a story about a princess and a unicorn that she meets. I remember drawing the cover page for the story, but I have no clue what the plot was. From then on I started putting myself into stories I imagined. Any book or movie or tv show I liked I imagined I was a character in the story. I was both Sailor Sun and the Purple Power Ranger -- future blog post about that later ;)

It wasn't until I was in grade nine that I tackled writing my first novel. It was an epic fantasy, complete with Elves, Dwarves, and Gnomes. It took me three years to write three chapters. It's a project that is still currently on the back burner.

Since 2008 when I really started to let my imagination and ideas flow -see the page How The Story Began- I've had so many things flow into my brain. I tend to have lots of notebooks. And lately even more notes about novel ideas in the 'notepad' app of my iPhone.

My writing is now the heart of my creativity. I don't know where I'd be without it.

I can't wait to read all the other posts by all the other authors. Keep checking back here and enjoy! I'll be posting every day, plus an additional post on my book Lasera's blog on Mondays and a book review on this blog every Thursday.

I'm also in the midst of a move and reading one book a week to review on the blog... how will I get it all done and complete the balancing act?
I have no what-in-the-world-is-she-thinking idea.

But c'est la vie. Here's hoping I get it all done!



  1. I love reading how we all got our starts in writing.

  2. Many of us have something in common - we started our writing in elementary school. I got a kick out of you inserting yourself into TV shows - I did that too, spending many happy hours working at the Daily Planet alongside Lois Lane (reruns of the Old Superman series starring George Reeves and Noel Neill). Good luck!

  3. I really enjoy finding out all our different starts too Cariann. Thanks bookwork. It's so nice to know I wasn't alone in that. I never went into the world of Superman, but I did with Smallville. :D I was Chloe's friend. Thanks for the comments!

  4. I'm playing catchup after a weekend away from home. This is a beautiful post. I think all writers have the playacting thing in common. We must do that or we cannot put ourselves into another person's shoes. That act is a necessary one when creating a character and making them believable. :)

    WRITE ON!!
