welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

coming to my defense

i was perusing blogs (as i usually do to wake up in the morning) and came across this quote at Michelle McLean's Writer Ramblings:

"Your manuscript is both good and original, but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good." - Samuel Johnson

when i read it out loud, my eldest son thought it was funny, but then he said, "Did someone say that about your book?"

"No."

"Good, because if they did, I'm going to have to find them and pummel them."

of course, he's the one who said he would go see a movie of my book, and reminded me that i'm a story person.
