After being persecuted during my teenage years for an inability to speel, I gave up writing seriously for quite a few years. As my 30's hit, I rediscovered my love of both telling stories, language and it's shaping, and spell checkers! :) For the past 12 years I've been writing bigger and bigger works, and even finishing some of them too (like 2008's Nanonovel, the story actually done at 72K words). Sluggish editing of that one aside, I look forward to Nano each year, and invariably get excited about writing all over again as November draws close. I was ML, then co-ML for my region, Sydney Australia, 2006-2009, but had to give it up last year as I was married on Oct 31st! So I have a wedding anniversary on prep night for NaNo... Cest la vie. In the last year, I was invited to join a RPG production company, StoryWeaver Games (find us on Facebook and Twitter!), and have published my first adventure on the DriveThruRPG website (called Transit to Perdition). It's wonderful to see your name as author on a published product, and I hope to have many more. It's not a novel, so I'm setting my novel in the same universe this year, and hope to have it published on DriveThruFiction by mid 2012. Then I WILL have a published novel!
Looking forward to all the craziness that is NaNoWriMo. Bring on NOVEMBER!!!
