A Glance Backwards

Jan 2010-I began my writing journey with best friend Kathryn Purdie.

February-December 2010- Katie and I didn't know what we were doing, so spent a lot of time writing a chapter, sending it to each other, then making HUGE rewrites. I didn't get very far in my story, The Golden Wood, a twist on Beauty and the Beast.

January of 2011 I found WIFRY online and Katie and I pulled strings to be there together.

February 2011-3 days after registering I found out I was pregnant with #4. With my morning sickness I had less than quality writing for the next 4 months

June 2012-Attended WIFYR with Kathryn. We took Louise Plummer's Class and found our awesome Crit. Group

July-Promised myself I would not go backwards-forced myself to write forward until I had my 1st complete draft of The Golden Wood .

August 25th-Finished my MS!! Did Happy Dance, Glowed for an entire week.

September and October 2011-Worked on revising MS. Got ready for baby. Slept as often as possible
              Baby boy born Oct. 27th! Healthy, Happy, and Yikes-At Home!

November 2011-did my first NaNoWriMo challenge. And I won! My MS-The Girl Who Could See

December 2011-1st revision of NaNo

Up Next: 2012 Goals

  1. It's been a crazy ride, Robin! I'm glad you've been on it with me from the beginning. (Little did we know what we were getting ourselves into back then.) :-)
