Beginning Blog - or - Getting a Life

In the beginning, when I was a kid, I started writing for pleasure. When my kids started heading off to college, my oldest son told me to, “Get a Life.”

I thought how hard can it be? Well, after devoting 23 years to raising kids, it’s not so easy. It’s difficult to change focus and break habits but I’m trying - by writing.

Good job, Kim. And great that you were motivated by your son to expand your writing-our children are our best teachers. Patricia

Hi, fellow new blogger! Since you recently got an agent, I'd say that's starting your new life off with a bang. I hope it's marvelous.

hi kim! congrats on setting up your own blog!! i actually began writing a novel to try and have something "of my own" while i stayed home with the bubs.

if it weren't for them, i'd have kept working full time and probably never tried to write a novel.

congrats to you on writing AND getting an agent!! good luck on submissions!!
