Who I Am

My mind tends to wander. I guess this is one reason why writing comes naturally to me. When I'm at work (yes, I have a regular job!), I think about writing. When I'm writing, I think about school. When I think about school, I think about my kids or my family. And the cycle continues. I'm always thinking of things I could be doing instead of what I'm supposed to be doing and I've had such a hard time curbing my mental restlessness.

Perhaps I have this undeniable urge for life to change? Or maybe I'm anxious to see if this path is one worth continuing? It's hard to say this early in the game, but I'm not one to give up easily. My entire life, I've been a fighter. I fight for the ones I love. I fight for my ideals and beliefs. I fight for my children. Bottom line....I've got a strength deep inside that I didn't know I had and it keeps me going day after day.

Often, I blog about what's happening with my books and bits and pieces of real life. I'm not really that superficial. I'm a real person, with real problems and challenges, trying to find a really good way to live out this dream. I refuse to be stuck doing something I hate forever and I won't be told I have to write a certain way to fit in with today's pop-literature. I am my own person; I have my own voice.

Basically, this is my way of saying that I may type with a lot of exclamation points and post a ton of stuff about how my writing is going, but I'm just trying to figure out the best way to do the one thing I've always loved to do. I'm not just a writer, it's engrained in my DNA to tell stories and create mysterious worlds and characters everyone can fall in love with. I don't write just write to make a living, I write because it's my passion!


  1. Very heartfelt, Miss Lisa, and I love that. I think t's good to sit down and not only remind our readers, but also ourselves, that we are only human. We do makes mistakes and fall away from the importances and priorities in our lives, but eventually we get back on track. It's only a question of how many worlds we must travel before we role back to our feet. Love ya, girl! Keep up all te good work! You've worked so incredibly hard to reach the point in your walk that you now stand. Truck along, sing a song, do a silly dance, breathe fresh morning air; remember the little things in life that make it worth living :)

  2. I'm on the same search you are, is this ride worth the price of the ticket? We'll find out as we go along.

    I love that you write for your love of writing and not just to follow the newest market trends. You're right, you have a voice, and you deserve to be heard.

  3. You'll make it. I've always referred to writing being like a disease. I seem to be driven to.

  4. you talk about inner strength,dna,and passion,wow!this defines who you are!(note the use of exclamation points!)never lose the strength and all else will fall into place!(note the use of exclamation points!)be true to yourself.
