First Post

I'm sitting here outside on this gorgeous day with Hubsters while Little Monster jumps on the trampoline with a neighborhood friend.  Ah, this is the life.  Beautiful weather, the kid is occupied, and Hubs and I sit in companionable silence.  Oh, and the MILLION dogs barking at us from all sides of the yard.  But still...peace.  Oh wait, there's the train that runs practically in our back yard...  and we're back to peace. And...now we've all migrated inside because there is a wasp nest under the trampoline.  Ah, peace.

Anyway, so this is my first post.  I guess I should try to convince you as to why you should follow my blog out of the TONS of other blogs out there about being a mother, wife, trying to write, having a part time job, and overall juggling my hectic life.  But honestly, I can't give you a good reason.  It probably is the same as every other blog out there.  But, dear readers, (I say readers, meaning my mom and the guy that accidentally stumbles on to my blog because he was googling how to keep his head above water while swimming...hi mom! and...random guy..) even if I don't drastically change your lives with my posts (but if I do, that would be awesome), I hope to at least provide you with a bit of entertainment and insight into my experiences in trying to write YA novels.

I promise I won't try too hard to get you to like me, but I hope you do!  Check back regularly because I plan on updating this thing every couple days.  We'll see how that works out, and don't hesitate to contact me with questions!

Man, my brother beat me to following my own wife's blog. I am a failure.

On a more topical note, I'm stoked you started this and I'm super proud of you!

I am so happy you started your blog! You are listed in my "Author Must Reads" folder in my reader!:) And there might just be something special on my blog soon...;)

Awww... Thanks Sarah! You actually really intimidate me when it comes to blogging and books and all...you really are the queen of all things YA!

And, Justin, you are the best brother-in-law ever, for becoming my first follower.

I'll forgive you Hubs, for being my second follower..I guess.

Congrats on starting your blog! You will be a great blogger. You already have more followers than me and your blog is less than a week old.
