I hijacked a friend’s blog…

Haha, just kidding. I did a guest post over on my best friend Nichole’s blog. Check it out here! And be sure to have a look around her blog, JustSomeJane. She posts a whole lot more than I do, is involved in contests and giveaways…there’s all sorts of fun stuff going on over there!

She’s one of the most beautiful and inspiring people I know. We are so different and yet so alike, and I wonder sometimes how I got lucky enough to find her. Some people come into your life and are gone in a flash; others find their way into your heart and your soul and become a part of you. That’s what we have. The internet has made this big world seem a whole lot smaller and has brought so many people together who wouldn’t otherwise have met…I’m just glad it helped us find each other!

Side by side or miles apart, best friends are forever. <3

New Beginnings!

smileyWell, ambition seems to have taken hold of me lately:) I decided to create a new collaborative writing blog. It’s over here!

The project was inspired by a book I read recently where two authors gave each other a 48-hour writing challenge and they each wrote a story based on the challenge topic. The result was a collection of short stories.

I’m changing things up a bit and using a weekly deadline, but it should be interesting to see the various stories the participating authors create! First challenge is already posted – with a March 1 deadline as we get started.

gradI’ve also been in touch with a local university, and once we have our taxes for 2012 completed, I’m going to see what kind of financial aid I can get and finally start accomplishing my dream of a degree in English with a focus on creative writing. I haven’t decided on whether to pursue the 3-year bachelor of arts degree or the combination program to get both my bachelor’s and my master’s degree in 5 years. That would depend on the cost, I think. Either way, I can’t wait to get started!
