This post should not be so difficult. I’ve gotten to know the NAF folks pretty well already. I feel welcome here. Part of the “Collective”…as Robynn puts it ;).
Yet, it’s that awkward “first post.” Do I just introduce myself? Give you the lowdown on who this Kat person is? Or post a link to my bio and skip all that?
Alright, we’ll start at the beginning. I wasn’t one of those people who spent their whole childhood scribbling out stories. Instead I spent my childhood reading and drawing, never really suspecting there was a writer inside me.
But there was. And in August 2007 she made herself known. Pretty well took over my head and wouldn’t give it back until I said I’d take her seriously. So, I sat down and let her pound on the keyboard of my laptop, just to see what she could do. The first chapter of Finding Angel, my middle grade fantasy, was the result.
Since then we’ve developed a pretty symbiotic relationship.
Get it? “Pretty symbiotic” / pretty symbiont…OK, never mind. Point is, me and this writing thing are joined, and there’s nothin’ I can do about it now. It’s like that with writing, so I’m just going to make the best of it.
And, um, drag you along with me.
