Does this count as writing?

There is so much about writing a book that doesn’t involve writing at all. At the front end of it there’s the dreaming, the planning, the researching, the READING…. and more reading. In the middle there is an awful lot of second-guessing and scratching out. And now that I have actually managed to write an entire novel, I’m discovering a whole load of new non-writing tasks, including re-learning how to make a website!

I’ve been doing a lot of snooping online lately to see what other authors do online, and it has given me a ton of ideas about fun ways to interact with other writers, readers and publishers. I know it won’t happen overnight, but I would love to see this site, along with my social media feeds, form part of a meaningful literary community. So let’s get started!

P.S. The photos have basically nothing to do with the posts. I just like sharing photos of my garden, which is one of my happy places.

Hello. Hola.

Thanks for stopping by my website. I actually can’t talk much about the real reason for this site — to share about my novel! Fingers crossed that soon I’ll be able to tell you more about the book, its characters and the history that inspired it, but in the meantime I hope that this will be a fun place to connect over books, writing, and publishing. And if a little bit about my other hobbies (especially my succulents, my garden, my animals) gets thrown in too, all the better.
