Introduction Post: Me! Me! Me!

Hiya! Anne here. I’m a YA author-in-training, slave to folklore and mythology from around the world, and beagle-owner. Brody the beagle and I live in Denver, Colorado. I’m currently unagented but hopeful.

As the blog title suggests, most of my entries chronicle my path to publication. I’ve been writing short stories to flex my writing muscles and winning a couple contests along the way. All of them are listed under Saturday Shorts.

Here are a few to get us acquainted: La Belle Dame sans Merci & Princess Tuvstarr (winners at merry_fates comm); Aqualight & All the Ships Go Down (winners at brigits_flame comm); Biology 101 & Rip Out the Wings of a Butterfly (personal favs).

I forgot how much I loved your man-eating mermaids. One of my two favorite MF contest entries EVER.

Hello Anne,

It's so nice to meet you. It's so eerie how similar we are, um, except that I don't have a beagle, nor have I won any contests with my short stories (yet) nor am I a slave to folklore and mythology. Oh, yeah, and I don't live in Denver either. But as for the rest, we could practically be soul sisters :P

:p You told me to make a top post and now you're mocking me?! I think you need a beagle. They're way better than krakens. :p

I attended uni in Boulder! :D (LJ hasn't worked for like two weeks. This is very sad making!)

And you are awesome! And adorable. ;)

I did see it! Later. I watched it on the CW online. Cannot do that again! THE SUSPENSE! (LJs being so wonky to me.)

Thank you!
Thank you so much for the yummy virtual gift!

(I haven't been here much this past week due to real life bad stuff, so it was a treat to come back to. ♥)

Hello. :)

I sent you a message, but it didn't show up on my sent messages page - so I don't know if you received it or not. So, just in case:

Thank you for the headphones. ♥

Hello! Yes, I'm writing currently. Have a couple of novels kicking about and I post a short story a week to Cimmerian Tales.

How about you? :D

I'm afraid not. I haven't written anything in about 2 years and 7 months...about the time I found out I was pregnant...due to the nausea! And I just haven't had time since then. This blogging is my attempt to get back into it. I still have some WIP's in a box gathering dust that I hope to get out in the next few months as perhaps the little one will be able to play on his own once in awhile. But I must keep my expectations on the low end of the scale for now. At least this is a start. :)
