Hello and Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Now that you have found me I hope you will continue to visit.

Here at WordPress I plan to keep a sort of journal of my renewed journey into becoming a real life published author.  I already have a small collection of rejection letters from several years ago.  Back then I didn’t know much about how to go about things, but I did know that I wanted to write for children.   Since that time I have taken a couple of excellent writing courses so that I have a better understanding,  and now I am trying again.  Last year I received my first two rejection letters in my new beginning .. so I am on my way!  🙂

Following the tip of Laura Best who has a blog here, I sent off two of my stories to two different publishers.  (Thanks, Laura!)  The wait has begun anew.  But, I am not just waiting and doing nothing else.  The ideas are coming quickly right now so I keep paper and pen by my bed in order to capture them.  It seems that when I lie down to rest is when my ‘muse’ comes alive!  Perhaps that is when my mind is not as preoccupied with the things of life and the ideas are free to flow through.  Strangely, I have beginnings of six stories and only a few vague ideas for them, and one very dark poem which is not for children.  In fact, the stories I have started are suited to different age groups, and perhaps not all are for children.  That I expect to learn as the stories develop.

So, enough for my first post.  I welcome you to travel along with me on my journey.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
