Hello All, Diana here. Since this is my first post, I figured I would give you a little background.
I was born on a drizzly spring morning in April…well, maybe not that much background…I’ll start by telling you about when I started writing.
Every summer when I was growing up, my family would take a vacation in our motor home. Renee and I spent countless hours on our bunk beds writing, reading, and drawing. Now let’s have this understood from the beginning; Renee was always a few steps ahead. For example, the summer I read The Baby-sitters Club Super Special #7 She polished off the entire works of Shakespeare. And although Renee threatened that if I gushed about her she would just go in and delete it, I must say that she truly is a naturally exceptional writer and always has been. But we both loved to create.
My first attempt at a novel was Rosaline a fairly shameless copy of Gone with the Wind, only set in England. After that dismal failure, I turned my focus to painting and theatre. After finishing college, getting married, and having two absolutely adorable kids, I cautiously returned to writing. Right now I am working on a fantasy novel, but I am also very interested in writing screenplays and plays for the stage. I have a million ideas and characters in my head, but I just need to commit to sticking with one idea. Every time I start to write, I either get a new “better” idea or I begin to loathe the idea I am working on. Any tips on getting past this stage?
Well now that I have bored you all to tears, I will throw in a cute picture of my kids and hope to win you all over with that.
Cute, eh? Well, I look forward to sharing my writing journey with you!
