Wow, the last time I wrote on this blog was a whole year ago. 🙂
You can say my interests have changed. Yep. I’m still writing, I’m just not writing here. So I’ve come back to tell you where I’ve gone just in case y’all want to follow. And if not, that’s okay…but I won’t be blogging about my weight loss journey or needlework here.
Since I was a kid, I knew I was a writer. I wanted to write fiction above all else, but as I grew up life kind of kicked that out of me and I needed to develop other priorities in order to survive. So I dropped the writing dream.
Life has been kicking me in new ways lately. I lost my mom this year. She was 96 years old…so I had a long time with her. We had a wonderful relationship. But the entire experience took my focus off of blogging AGAIN…and onto life. So another year has passed with my sharing nothing.
The pandemic turned me back into a reader for the first time in a long, long time…and that started making me want to write. And here I am. 🙂 I can’t split my focus in a million different ways, so I’m dialing it down to something manageable.
I’ve decided to write under a pseudonym, as my real last name isn’t very book cover friendly – but I’m keeping my first name the same. I’m still Dianne. 🙂
I’ve just written my first short story and it’s being reviewed by a few close friends for typos and issues. Then I’m releasing it to some very lovely readers who’ve put their hands up to get advance copies. Right now, I have an author website, and Facebook and Instagram accounts. There’s nothing on my website yet, but I’m listing it here because there will be within 30 days or so.
Here are all the places you can find me if you’d like to follow my fiction writing:
Cheers, fellow hot messes! ♥
