welcome to the blog

Hey all, I'm excited and nervous to be starting this blog.  Let me tell you how it began...

A couple weeks ago, I attended a sci-fi conference for writers and readers in Calgary.  Great Canadian writers such as Robert J. Sawyer, Jack White, and a myriad of other writers and editors and publishers led panels on such topics as writing difficult scenes, world-building, and young adult fiction.  At a slush reading, the first page of my NaNoWriMo manuscript was rejected, which I found funny and slightly disappointing; at another session, Facebook, blogs, e-books, and Twitter were the main topic of concern.  How does a writer, especially an emerging writer, interact with readers?  It's become easier, and indeed more necessary, than ever to network online.  And so, I bit the bullet and started this blog.  Not that I was loathe to do so: I've been thinking about it for a while, and this conference was enough to jump-start this beast to life.

So here we are.  In this space, I will be sharing my thoughts on being a writer and the wide expanse of writing out there, and maybe even post some of my successes and failures (hopefully there will be both) on my journey as a literary type.  Hope you enjoy, feel free to comment or contact me at, I love discussion!
