Well, here I am — on the eve of my 24th birthday and the start of which (I hope) is a very good year. I come to WordPress seeking asylum and safety from my blogspot blog. A fresh start, something a little more professional. Something I don’t have to stress over. Doesn’t that sound nice? I’m at a point in my life where I have enough to think about without unwanted distractions cluttering my head and spoiling a perfectly productive day.

Anyway, hello. I am a young(ish oh god) writer. I have just finishing drafting the final book in my series of four (though I’m hoping to cut that down to three when it comes to it) and am currently prepping my finished-finished Book One for submission into the more-than-slightly-terrifying publishing waters. Luckily I have raised the book into a capable young adult and I’m not fretting too much (if I keep telling myself that, it has to be true, right?) Truth be told, I’m scared to death. But not in an oh-god-I-shouldn’t-be-doing-this-I’m-not-ready way. More of a oh-god-I-can’t-believe-I’m-at-this-point-this-is-so-exciting sort of way. Which is much nicer. Tomorrow, I’m intending to submit to my first agent, someone who I’ve been following for a while and I really hope MP has a chance. If not, all good, but oh god I want this!!

And so saying, I’m going back to whacking out my query. Wish me luck, and welcome to my new home!
