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...

it's a revolt

no matter how many times i rewrite the scene, my characters have decided i still don't "get" them, that i'm trying to force them to do something they're not ready to do. it's gotten so bad, i think they're planning a revolt, or at least a kidnapping. if you don't see me back here in a day or two, expect to see a ransom note from either Tiana or Arathor.

Characters! They think the book is about them.

yes, i suppose they do. but there'd be no story without them, so, like it or not, we have to give into their demands
