As this is my first foray into the blogging world, I'll start by telling you a little bit about myself. I am a writer who is working on becoming a published novelist. (Not the easiest job in the world, despite what others may assume.) Needless to say, I got a late start on the business of writing, although I have been writing for myself for at least twenty years. And while I completed my first manuscript about two years ago, I haven't seen anything in print.
Additionally, I am a homeschooling parent and a SAHM (Stay-at-home-mother).
So, this blog will be a mixture of the woes and joys of writing, parenting, teaching, and ultimately, life. I hope you enjoy my musings enough to come back and visit from time to time.
(Although, for reasons of my own, I'm going to shy away from anything too deeply personal. You never know what kind of nuts are roaming the world these days, and life's too short to invite them into my home.)
PS. The nickname 'Shrug' is my online moniker and short for I_Shrugged (the user name I keep at Absolute Write).
(ETA: I am in no way affiliated with Absolute Write, its administrators, or its entities. Additionally, I am no longer a member.)
