Some days I get down when I realize that I started trying to write in 1994. If my book were a baby it would be graduating from high school this year. That book started out as a typical Civil War Historical Romance. Then in about 1995 I discovered that Time Travel was the hot thing selling so I transformed this story into a time travel. Then a couple of years later learned that Time Travels were no longer selling so I cut out the time travel elements and went back to the original format.
Fast forward to 1998 when the thing in romance was the modern day cowboy/baby/cop book. If a book was to sell it had to have one or two of those elements. Then paranormal & vampire stories were all the rage and I said this is for the birds. I am going to write the story I want and not worry about what is the popular thing to write.
In 2000 I had my first child so all my stories revolved around heroines who had babies. By the time daughter # 2 was born in 2006 I was so sick of trying to follow market trends I just gave up on writing. Also some where in there my hard drive crashed and my stories were all gone.
2010 I decided the best way for me to write was to blog. As you can tell I am not posting that often and when I do my post are random, (Hmmm like me) Someone ask me once how do I characterize my blog. It is not a home decorating blog, or a quilting/sewing blog, nor is it a travel blog, or even a christian devotional blog, certainly not a healthy life style/exercise blog.
So if you are into Sewing/Quilting, crafts, cooking, bible study, writing/reading, genealogy, history, civil war reenacting hang out for a while and I am sure we will cover the topic
Garner Girl has a little bit of all my interest, my followers are few and that is ok. Because I do this for me. Sure I would love to have 100's of followers, but I am just fine with the few I have.
Wow all of that to say, I would like to share a cool site I found today. http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/
Grammar Girl has answers to those grammar questions we struggle with. I tried to enclose a link I hope it works.
