You're in the right place, and I'd love to get to know you all better, so tell us a bit about you. Anything you'd like to share? Got issues you'd like to rant about? Like my books? (please say yes to that last question) Do you write? Do you read?

My name is Beth. I absolutely LOVE to read. I am trying to work on my first book and it is NOT easy. I love Paranormal books and books with a strong but loving alpha male and a strong and sassy woman.

Trust me, I know how difficult it is to get that first book done. I started out by writing short stories. There is a market for them, but honestly, I never dreamed I'd actually sell any. When I did, and the publisher asked me to write longer works, I couldn't imagine getting 20 thousand words together, let along 50 or more for a real book.
A hint, if you're not enjoying it, it'll show. Have fun with your characters and the writing process.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

I'm loving it.. It's better than any movie. I am working on my outline and my characters now. I have given myself a specific day to start actually writing (Saturday), so I'm excited and nervous.:omg_2:

Nervous? But you know these people and all you're going to do is tell their story. I find that once the outline is complete and I know where their story's going, writing it can be such a rush. It's not simple or easy, but it's something I couldn't bear not doing.
Cripes, even to me that sounds confusing. LOL
Make sure you come back and let me know how it's going.

So last night I couldn't sleep and decided to get up and try to start on my first chapter. I got a good start and it started with a chase! It's this first draft and Ernest Hemingway said 'The first draft is always sh**', but I am very excited that at least I got that much down Cheerleader. Nowhere to go from here but forward!
