A chronic insomniac, I got used to making up stories while I waited to fall asleep. It was a lot more interesting than counting sheep. Maybe too interesting, because I started staying awake so I could figure out “what happened” to my characters. For the sake of my health, I began writing the stories on paper – during the day. So far it’s working out pretty good:)
I’m a member of RWA and MORWA and ORA. I also have two great critique partners who I can’t thank enough. They taught me a LOT!
So grab a cup of coffee and step into the past with me.
