I tend to keep my writing habit quiet for two reasons:

1. People's first question is: Write anything I know?

They just assume it's published. A lot of people have no idea how complicated it is to get published. It's not easy. Then again, I'm preaching to the choir if you're reading this.

2. I have a strange enough "main" career that's complicated enough to explain without having to add in the whole writing thing. 

I have one year left until I'm an official high school agriculture teacher. That takes some explaining like...why yes, I am a girl....I'll teach shop, welding, mechanics, horticulture, floral design, animal science, business, and who know's what else....that's right, high school kids....(and my favorite) no, I'm not crazy.

I've got a feeling that until my book hits shelves I won't tell the everyday person. My family knows, my closest friends know, and well everyone else....they can wait. (Except for you, you're special.)

I'm actually considering just getting a new wardrobe...what do you all think? It might work?

Have a great weekend!


  1. Stumble upon your blog and I found so many fascinating posts. Start following your blog. Please do not hesitate to visit mine and I really appreciate if you can follow me back...Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Keep up the great work.

  2. Just the fact that you're a teacher is a good thing. And, yes, a new wardrobe would do you wonders.
