**Edited to add the pip for the November Fresh Start Challenge--Goal Accomplished!**
**And even better...Edited to show story sale!**


The purpose of this post is to tell something about me. So... here we go...

What I am

My stories are Fantasy in nature.
My stories are Science Fiction in nature.
My stories are Romance in nature.

I consider myself a Word Warrior because I've fought long and hard over a lot of words. (And of course, participated in many word wars.)

I help FM out by moderating a few boards and creating some pips. (since 1/2/06)
And this year (2008), I'm taking it a step further by learning html to help with modifying the pips page.


What I have done

I've written one complete book (and parts of two others).
I've written over 20 short stories.
I've sold one story and three articles (see below for the links).
I've gotten at least 10 rejections (including contests).
I've completed over 100 crits for FM members (closer to 170).

Fiction Sold:
The Beginning of Something Wonderful published at Aurora Wolf.

Vision Articles Sold:
Issue #32 March/April 2006 A Question of Style

Issue #36 November/December 2006 Do you know what you want from a Critique?

Issue #47 September/October 2008 Finding Motivation


I've organized Back to School for Busy Writers beginning in October 2007.


I've organized 3 Little Words Activity for FM beginning in April 2008.

Wonderful!

I also really like how you explained everything - I always forget what all the different pips mean, so it's nice to have the explanation along with it.

Why, thank you, dearie! *grin* Yup... I forget too. And when someone asks me about them I hate saying... duhhh... I don't know. Not to mention it suits the organized nature of my anal personality. *big grin* Glad you're enjoying the board! Makes the effort worthwhile.

Well... not all of those things happen at once. So, there's time for a little panting between. *grin* Seriously, you just make the time to do it--and hope you don't piss off the hubby. *wink* In 2007 & 2008, I haven't been as committed as I'd like to be, which is why I keep these things up to remind myself. But I'm hoping that 2009 will be better.

Just keep putting one foot after the other, dearie. Soon, you'll get a nice page going for yourself.

And thanks! ((((hugs))))

Well, excellent! That's exactly why I keep this thing around--to inspire myself! When I'm feeling down about how little I've been able to write (which has been quite a bit this year *frown*) I take a look and remember what I can accomplish if I just try a little harder. And ya know what? It helps! This month I actually put a writing goal in place--which is the new pip for pariticpation(Fresh Start). I've gotten back into going to my writing group meetings, have envisioned a new scene, and my characters have started talking to me again! So... definitely check out one of those monthly challenges, or daily exercises, or a workshop... or anything FM has to offer. You'll be building a nice history that will help you further down the road!

Good luck, dearie! And thanks for your encouragement!

Very nice set of accomplishments!

What is Tale Spinners? (That probably shows how little I've been participating lately... )

Thank you, although most of this is history. I'd hoped to be more active in 2009, but that's just not working out. *frown* But maybe the fall...

Not at all. Tale Spinners is a private group I belong to. It's so important to find the right group of writer buddies (if belonging to a group is your thing, that is). We're small--tiny actually--but we have stuck together thru thick and thin writing times. *wink* Best thing is that we have a lot of fun doing it too!
