I set out this year to start a literary career. I have always been an avid reader, even managing to fit in a novel or two around the limited time I have not caring for my three munchkins. As such, I have felt a leaning toward recording my thoughts and ideas. My personal story is the entire premise of this blog. Sharing in a public setting can be quite daunting for me so having a domain to record things in a written format has been rather refreshing. The other avenue for written outlet is in short stories and novels. So far I have nothing completed to my satisfaction. My imagination covers a wide scope. Trying to pin down a specific format or even genre can be quite difficult.
I finally got some time to sit down and do some writing. I have two written pieces in the works at the moment. One is a science fiction futuristic sort of thing, the other is a historical romance. I have rough outlines done for both, with snippets already recorded for future editing. I hope to get full outlines completed in the next month or two. If I can at least get a more definitive idea of what I am trying to share, I should be able to get some piece of written work completed by the end of the year. I would like to get a short story done first, a means of cementing the characters and their experiences into my psyche. The closer I feel to an endeavour, the more I find I can tap into that creative energy.
Fingers crossed I can get more time to write and one day make these dreams of publishing something others enjoy reading a reality. For now I have a half naked 20 month old jumping all over me as he feels I have ignored him for too long.
