First post!


Ah well, here’s my first post on my shiny new WordPress blog! I really like the feel of the WordPress world.

So, what can you expect here? Mostly, we’ll look at writing, both the craft and the business. There will probably be random postings from me, as well. I ramble sometimes. Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it. You might like rambling right along with me!

I’m currently a final-term student at Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction Program. I’ve completed the first draft of my thesis novel, a supernatural thriller called Soul Cavern, and am working on revisions now. In the WPF program, I’ve learned at least 10x my weight in writing knowledge and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in breaking into the publishing industry. It’s particularly geared toward commercial (genre) fiction — as far as I know, the only MA program in the entire country which focuses on SF, Fantasy, Horror, Romance, Mystery/Suspense, YA/Children’s, etc.

I’m also a gadget-girl and software junkie, so expect some suggestions with a techie bent. I’ve found a lot of great software to help writers’ productivity and record-keeping. I’ll be sharing those as well!

In the coming weeks, I’ll be adding links to the sidebars. I’m interested in fostering a community for writers and aspiring authors, so many of the links will be geared towards assisting writers. But I can’t guarantee there won’t be plugs for writer friends! 😉

At any rate, welcome to my blog! Feel free to nose around, make suggestions, comments, or ask questions. I don’t know everything–not by a long shot!– but someone is bound to know!
