I'm a writer and a perfectionist - not a very good combination if you wish to ever finish a project and get published. I tend to rewrite and edit my work once I'm halfway complete and then can't work on the second half because fixing the first half takes up all my time. And then I tend to take long breaks. Which is why I started this blog so that I may finish and get my stories out there. I dream to become a professional romance novelist someday. I've already professionally written for a couple of newspapers and magazines already but it's romance novels / chick-lit that I'm really passionate about.
I've read Pride and Prejudice once-a-year since 1999. I have also reread the Harry Potter series numerous times. And the best part is I'm discovering new things about these books!
I wish to be a member of Romance Writers of America one day and have the opportunity to build up that community by helping other talented writers fulfill their dreams. I want to work with Harlequin, Bantam, Times Warner, Minstrel, St. Martin's and whatnot and be loved like the way I love Jane Austen, Jennifer Crusie, Julia Quinn, Debbie Macomber... Inspirational women's fiction writers. And, though Oprah doesn't do the chick-lit scene, I want to be able to someday have her tell me that she has read my works too and finds them warm and quirky (a girl can dream!)...
These aren't too much to ask, are they?
