welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-lover, 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...

no truer words

"Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out to the public.” -Winston Churchill

i think i'm in the tyrant stage, but i'm not yet reconciled to my servitude. just flinging it out is tempting, but i know i have to finish.

Mine just entered the mistress stage. I'm not telling my wife, though!

What a great quote! I'm not quite sure what stage I'm in :)

I just flung one out into the world. The other two are not quite master yet - but soon as I have the time to devote, I'm sure they will become tyrants.

I'll sure be glad when things slow down at my day job and I can be controlled by writing again.
