For the longest time, I felt I was a failure at being an author. It always seemed to take me forever to get something of significance finished, and what I wrote never felt complete. What in the world was I doing?
Today, I still feel it's taking me the longest to get anything (my novel) finished, but my short stories seem to strike like lightning! I have one short in the hands of the anthology owner currently, while another's being prepared to be shipped over with another publisher. I feel like I'm on fire!
This is my official motto!
When I saw the tee online, I knew I had to have the shirt. I've owned it for at least three years since, only wearing it once or twice a year. That's what I do with all my author, British and Church tees. I know- silly, but they have to stay in great condition. So what's any of this got to do with being an author or writing? I'll share it with you. Mostly in a usual blog, but the rest will be in the vlog you see below.
Check it out! I made a video on November 1st to celebrate National Author's Day. It was fun, laborious and very productive, if I should say so myself. "wink" Know this- I am not perfect. LOL
I am so excited. I began the year totally all about standing independent,and on my own two feet. Then I quickly realized that I have too tart on the bottom- the top's too high for what I'm doing. So I changed the plan, flipped the script and I'm still standing on my own two feet, I just have some help. What did I do, you ask?
Who Am I?
My name's Alyssa and I'm just like you. Within me are stories, looking to be told. I do my best to relay them to the public, as magically as possible.
