Hi there! Most of you who will read this probably already know me, so I'm not going to bore you with a bunch of details about who I am, what I like to do in my free time, blah, blah (plus it's in the "About Me" section anyway).
But, I'm starting this blog in order to get my creative juices flowing. My awesome writer best friend L.T. Host inspired me to try to write a novel. And I want to, but it's harder to get started than I hoped. I have a story idea, and a couple of main characters, and some general ideas, but getting down to type is hard. My hubby tells me to just start writing and let it flow. But as I write I think "this sounds stupid", then I get discouraged and go watch TV. I think I just keep talking myself out of it.
So please, writers of the world who are better at this than I am, please give me some words of encouragement or advice to help me get started on my first-ever novel! Having never taken a writing class besides high school English (and my college journalism classes), I am a bit of a novice. But I'd like to think that I have something to contribute :).
