Don't be deceived by the title. I'm not getting rid of the old life, but rather I'm adding a dimension to this one. Of course, writing is not even "new" to me. I've been in the closet about it and have decided to come out. Earlier this year, I decided to learn about all facets of writing. I have decided there is more to writing than putting the stories on paper. I have always assumed that I could do that. I have a fertile imagination. I love books. I've read some books and thought...I can do that. I can do better than that. Isn't that how it begins for a lot of authors? Now is the time to prove it. So, back to the "new life" part. In the past few months, I have joined the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and the Diamond State Romance Authors (DSRA). I entered my first completed manuscript in a competition hosted by RWA. I took an online class taught by two talented authors from DSRA. I am determined to make this happen. I think that is probably one of the most important decisions in this journey as an author. Okay, some hard work and talent will be needed, but I am liberated by this decision. I am choosing my new life.
