The description of my blog under the title says, “YA Reviews and My Journey to Publication”. Well, I’ve been more focused on the reviews and I haven’t taken the time to talk about my writing. So, here I go…
I’ve always loved to write, but it wasn’t until the 6th grade that I began to take writing
seriously. I began with writing poetry, lyrics to be more exact. Skip ahead a few years, and I found myself reading a little book called Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I know a lot of people hold the opinion that Twilight is an awful piece of literature that shouldn’t have had the success it has experienced, but I whole-heartedly love it. If it weren’t for Twilight and Stephenie Meyer, I probably wouldn’t have started novel-writing until
much later. There was something about the book that made me go, “I want to do this.” and ever since, I haven’t stopped writing
Much like the books I read, I write paranormal-romance for young adults. I was watching shows like Charmed and Buffy the Vampire Slayer while others were still watching cartoons, so I have loved all things paranormal for a while. And in those shows, my favorite aspect was (and is) the love stories. So, it seems only natural that I would write love stories with a paranormal twist.
So far, I have written two novellas, 3 novels, and 3 unfinished works. I’m currently working on a new idea that I want to explore before finishing the most recent unfinished project. When I finished writing my first official novel, I thought it was the best thing EVER and that it HAD to get published. Obviously, I know better now and know that it will never be published, nor should it. 🙂 The good news is that I feel like my writing has improved with each story that I write and I cannot wait to write the one I want to marry and spend all my time with in hopes of getting it published. It’s going to be a long and hard road, but I am definitely up for the challenge.
