It is finally time to say goodbye to WORLDS THAT NEVER WERE. As my blog posts become more infrequent, I realize that it is time for me to take a hiatus from blogging. When I started this blog back in September of 2006, over two years ago, I intended to post about science and education, a platform for my educational writing. It grew to something completely different as my fiction writing became my passion. My posts turned toward the process of writing fiction.

This blog took me from a novice fiction writer, and I’ll say it, an untalented–or perhaps just inexperienced–story writer, to a novelist who has finished her first young adult fiction manuscript. I think parts of that novel are exceptional, while other sections still cry out “novice”. Still, THE MAGIC QUILT was how I cut my teeth on fiction. I believe my next novel will be better, and the next even better as I grow as a fiction writer.

As I move on to writing my second novel, I will continue to write short stories as my muse hits me. I love writing. I can’t imagine life without it. So even in the face of numerous and sometimes daily rejections, I will continue my journey toward becoming the best fiction writer that I can be. I will love every minute.

May you find your passion, as I have through my writing.

Goodbye for now.
