I’m currently slaving away at my first novel, The Art of the Waffle, a piece of Young Adult Literary Fiction. I’m 98% through the first draft and 30% through the first round of revisions. The ending – life of the surprise party – is saving itself for a revision or two.
A work of creative non-fiction, or if I must be frank, memoir. I cringe at the word, but alas, it is what I am writing. Borne of a blog post or two gone awry, Topography is a labor of love following our family through our last camping trip with the eldest in attendance still as a kiddo. It is a telling of our story, messy though it is, through that lens. Of beginnings, of endings, and of more and endless beginnings.
More appropriately referred to as The Great Blog Experiment. What it will evolve into, nobody knows, but its first years are populated mostly with a collection of writings about life and faith, and the humor that both require. Welcome to the Experiment!
Our little local writers’ group aims to provide camaraderie, accountability, and a safe place to give and receive genuine and focused feedback on one another’s writing endeavors. Some day we’ll all be able to say, “I knew them when…”
Write On, Ladies!
