I've been writing my whole life but mostly in just my journals or diaries. I never thought of actually writing a story.
Last year some time, my aunt suggested I write a book. I thought there was no way I could write a story that was my own. All the ideas I had bouncing around in my head were not my own and were from other books I have read. My aunt told me I could do it if I really thought about it.
So I did. And guess what? An idea came to me. Now mind you, that idea has changed ALOT! My first book is nothing like I originally started with and that's fine. I'm happy with it. I just hope others are too.
I started creating a playlist of songs that I hear that remind me of my book. Most of the songs are not from the type of music I listen to but I love them (I'm a heavy metal girl).
I don't have a writing office per say. My table is my writing area. My lap top is set up there with my notes and ideas and it's perfect for me.
I don't need pure silence to write so when the hubby is home, he can watch tv and I can write and we can still spend time together.
I'm very excited for my first book to come out, hopefully sometime this summer. I'm nervous, scared and biting my nails as to what people will think but I'm excited none the less.
So this is me, in a nutshell. :)
Jo-Anna is from a small city in Ontario, Canada -- born and raised. She just started taking up writing in 2013 and loves it! She absolutely loves her characters and cannot wait to share their stories with the world.
She's currently working at a call center which allows her the time to write. She also crochets as a hobby and if it wasn't for the 9-5 job, she wouldn't get half the projects done that she's been lucky to finish.
Jo-Anna is going to be self publishing her books -- first one coming out this summer.
