Ahoy, writing mateys. Welcome to the first day of the Buccaneer Blogfest hosted by Sharon Bayliss and Court Young. It's all about building our platforms and meeting new writers and friends. The plan is to post Monday, Wednesday and Friday based on prompts given, between July 9 - August 3. To read more about it, or to sail with the rest of us pirates on the high blogging seas, go HERE.
Day one involves telling you a little about me and my blog. So here it goes!
Some of you already know me as Lady Gwen from Run Gwen, Run! Write Gwen, Write! I have been in the blogosphere since 2010, first to write about my endeavor to get healthy and lose weight through running. THEN! I discovered a community of writer's I didn't know existed! It was divine intervention - I had given up a good paying job in San Diego and moved to the Rockies to write. So my blog became a mixture of running and writing posts, before it turned mostly to writing. Run Gwen, Run! became very crowded, so I shanghaied some of my followers and started a new author blog here.
And here we are!
I'm fifty-two years old. A little older, I think, than the average blogger I mix with here. Most of you are my daughters age. *snort* What can I say? I'm a late bloomer. I graduated from college with a BA in English when I was forty-one. In my family, IF we graduated from high school, we knew we were going to work. College was for rich people. I didn't know it was an option. But I felt so blessed when I finally did go, that I worked my butt off and graduated magna cum laude.
Have you ever said to yourself, some day I'm going to do this or that? Maybe it's travel, skydiving or scubadiving. Or writing a book. My "some day" finally came. Life is way too short to not follow your dreams, and that's why I'm here.
I write young adult fiction. My first book, Givin' Up The Ghost, is in final editing (I hope). I just finished the first draft of my second book, A Guilty Ghost Surprised. They are both part of The Indigo Eady Paranormal Mystery Series. I'm seriously thinking about self-publishing.
I hope you're still awake after reading this!
I can't wait to blog-hop around to read about your adventures riding the high seas of writing.
