Hi everyone! My name is Bethany. I loved to write as a child but is never occurred to me it could be a career. That still amazes me. After some crazy things happened in my life, I decided to sit down and write again. I ended up with a novel over 55,000 words. I was excited and proud. It was then, that I realized where I cold take it. I didn't get much farther on that one, when life happened again. I gave birth to my daughter and she was premature. After she came home and I got healthy, I lost sections of the novel to computer land. I still cant find them and its been almost seven years. I sat down and started a new novel, but that flat lined. Last year I was out of work and tried again. I finally finished my third novel, (I still have the start of the second) I am determined to get this one farther and work on my writing skills. I started looking for an agent and found this community. I have a feeling I'm not as ready to publish as I'd like to believe.
