I'm doing the A-to-Z Blog Challenge this month (what the frak is wrong with me???) so I don't have much time to write for IWSG. Which is actually too bad, because I like the question this month. Let me just say I haven't been doing much writing (towards any of my books) because all my writing as been going toward blog posts!
Screw it, here's a quick answer to the question of the month:
April 5 question - Do you remember writing your first book? What were your thoughts about a career path on writing? Where are you now and how is it working out for you? If you're at the start of the journey, what are your goals?
I wrote many "books" when I was in grade school and high school, ranging from illustrated kids books to comic books to novellas. My first full length "novel" I wrote when I was about 22 and it was... weird. I was going through an odd period of self-discovery and the book was a mixture of fantasy, autobiography, music, philosophy and stories about people I knew. I don't think it was bad, but it was a bit of mess. So was I, at the time, so I don't think it could have come out any other way. I've improved quite a bit as a writer since then, but I don't think I could write it now, as I'm a different person.
Anyway, go read about my tiny painted people, and I'll catch you next month.
Hugs & kisses,
