If it weren't for the shit ton of zebra cakes I just bought from the store (and inhaled like a complete nasty), I would have gotten around to writing my first blog post sooner.
But I didn't. 'Cause I'm lazy.
So yea. First blog post, which is a little weird, because I seriously have never done this before, so I guess it's sort of like driving a car for the first time. 'Cept it has no rearview, and instead of mom's Ford Escort, it's dad's Blazer... that also has no brakes.
And okay, maybe I'm exaggerating. (Just a little bit, though).
My main goal here is to track the process of writing a novel, and going from completely hopeless to hopeful. I'm hopeful right now, but cautiously so, as I've entered into an age category I never have before: Young Adult.
I'm normally an Adult writer, or a New Adult writer. But I've branched off into God-knows-where and I'm sort of just floating around in writer la-la land wondering what the hell I am going to do next. Translation: I have a busy mind when it comes to writing, and my thoughts are sporadic, and so are my ideas. It's annoying, but I love it, because writing is what I do and enjoy.
A little bit about myself.
I'm from the South (I think?). Or the Midwest. Whichever. I live in the plains where it's hotter than hell in the summer and cold as fuck in the winter. I
And I'm a writer. I write about whatever meets my fancy. At the moment, I have two finished manuscripts, one that is sort of on the backburner, and one that I am focusing all of my attention on. It's a YA horror novel, and the other is a NA historical fiction.
And the name of my blog--I have dreadlocks (which I love very much). The Dreaded Writer sounds like I may or might not completely suck at what I do. (As in my writing could be dreadful... or appalling. I like appalling better).
So yea. First time post annnnnd it was lame as heck. Oh well. Testing, testing...
At least I have more room for practice.
