Seriously. I need to do this.
Now that I’m back at school it’s getting harder and harder to write during the week. I’m still making time but I really look forward to weekend days where I have nothing to do but stay in and write.
I was reading the blog of this super successful indie writer this morning. She has been able to make a living from her books and I find her blog posts really interesting and inspiring. Every time I read one I think, “I want to be a stay at home writer too! I need to be more like her. What the heck am I doing on the internet??” And then I go sit down and write. So that’s the plan for today.
Tomorrow there will not be much time for writing. Tomorrow I am going to participate in my first ever author’s event! I am really geeked about it. The event is at a very cool little store in Clawson, Mi, very close to where I grew up. It will feature lots and lots of local authors who will have the chance to meet people, sell and sign books, and, apparently, eat refreshments. How could that be anything but awesome?
I had business cards printed for the occasion. I can’t stop looking at them. Dork!
So if you happen to be in the metro Detroit area tomorrow, stop by Leon and Lulu’s in Clawson and see me. It should be a grand time! All the info can be found right here.
Hope everyone is enjoying nice weather today! 77 and sunny in Detroit on October 8th!
Wish I was there, I would stop in to congratulate you. It sounds like a perfect day. Have fun!

Did you ever think other people would be reading YOUR blog for the same reason? Here I am! Congratulations on your writing success. By the way, whose blog were you referring to when you wrote this? I’d like to read their blog, too!
Oh my gosh, that is just crazy! I’m so happy to be a full time author. It’s the best job in the world! Thank you, Bree!
I *think* I was talking about Amanda Hocking but it may have been Zoe Winters. Both are definitely worth checking out!
