A Brief Hello

Hello. Howdy. And how do you do?

Chances are that you'll skim through this little post or ignore it completely, but I feel compelled to offer a bit of welcome and explanation.

So, what can you expect from this blog? Well, as a writer of fantasy and science fiction and a mother of two very young children, I know what it's like trying to get deeply involved in a story during the far too rare moments of peace and quiet. Quite too often, I'm forced to write in five minute intervals while simultaneously feeding my three-week old and cuddling with my two year old. Just a few weeks ago, I would have told you that such a thing was impossible. But when you have a passion for something, you make do with what you have. And when you only have five minutes, you use them.

By this point, you must be thinking I'm crazy for trying to keep up with a blog, and well, you'd be right. But like I said before, writing is my passion and I can't imagine not using every available moment I have in pursuit of it.

Because my newest literary baby is my novel, Aurumenas, most of my posts will have to do with my struggles in writing it and my characters' struggles in revealing themselves to me.

So sit back and enjoy the blog!


  1. Yay! It works!

    Love the new look, Em. Gorgeous!

  2. Nice to see you back on the blog Emily!

  3. As a father of two with a third on the way I understand what you mean about the difficulties of finding all the little chunks of time to sit down and get something written. It can be really tough but you make the most of what you get.


Yay! Comments! Oh, how I do love them! :D
