Cool, eh? Yep, my thoughts exactly.
So obviously I'm a writer. Duh. :) I've been dedicated to studying the craft for the last five years now. I write YA, experimented with an upper MG, and last November signed with my agent for my latest story, The Desiree, a YA romance with a twist. Full story here.
I have a son and daughter in elementary school, I'm married to a hardworking firefighter who doubles as a handyman, and my BFF is a 70lb cream-colored labradoodle named Ripley. I also work for the largest airline in the U.S. and handle European bookings.
BUT ... something you may not know, is that I've always dabbled in arts and crafts, and I've always had a thing for fantasy creatures. The first novel I tried writing was centered around fairy folk and I just loved imagining that story. But that was before all the Tinkerbell movies and books came out and I felt it killed my story. :(
However, lo and behold, an idea came to me a few weeks ago that allowed me to revisit that very first story, and I went with it. My fairy folk didn't have to stay buried away in an overwritten manuscript! I could bring my vision to life in a different way. And that's what I've done.
Each come with their own special power and purpose, each one crafted with love and precision. Hang them over your writing desk or art table for inspiration. For example, here's one that may be fitting for you:
Meet HARRIET PLOTTER.
Bringing inspiration to plotter and pantsters alike, Harriet wardens off the dark arts of writer’s block and flat characters with a wave of her wand. When in doubt, talk it out, because Harriet’s listening. Place her wherever you hope to stimulate chronic creative vibes for your masterpiece, and get writing!
Since this endeavor is so brand new, I'd love all the support I can get. If you'd "like" my Facebook page by clicking here, I'd be grateful. I'll introduce the entire line on my page, as well as new pixies that are created.
Actual orders can be made from my website, or from my Etsy Shop page. You can also custom design your own with hair and skin color and/or fashion.
So anyway, thanks for checking out my latest endeavor. Your support is SO much appreciated!
Wish my moon picture came out better, but it was the best I could do. Could be a lightbulb for all you know, right? lol
This was 3am Monday January 28. Beautiful full and yellow. A cool jeweled moon, as I like to say. (a la Jim Morrison). See more moon pictures on Mina's blog. (linked from above.)
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and learning more about me. I love learning more about my readers too. Tell me something I didn't know about you in the comments! Can be anything from your fave story or film, to how many siblings you have. Or any hidden talents? Would love to hear about those! So many creative folks in the blogosphere! Please share ...
