I started my story today. I woke up this morning feeling tired from a Halloween party I went to last night. As I turned over to fight my way back to sleep (I'm one of those people who, once they're awake, they're awake for the day), inspiration for my story hit. I wasn't even thinking about writing or not writing and this idea just came to me. I figured it was meant to be, and so instead of crawling deeper under my warm, comfortable blankets I jumped out of bed, turned my computer on and started writing. I want to be a published writer more than anything. And I'm starting to realize that I'm not going to get there by wishing for it - that it's going to take some work and some writing on my part. :) Here's to taking the first step.
