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...

so you want to write a novel? ha!

i don't know if this video by YA author Jen Hayley has made it to your corner of the web or not, but i have Kristie Cook to thank for pointing it out on facebook. it's so true that it's either sad or funny. i'm not sure which. if you don't happen to be a writer, this is pretty much what it's like to write a novel, start to finish.

i do want to know one thing: when did she have time to put this together? i don't think i have that much spare time. maybe she did it by staying "off" of facebook.

OMG. She's almost as crazy as I am. If it wasn't for the brown hair, and ok fine, different skin color, that would be me! Brilliant, Michelle and Kristie. This must be re-tweeted!

I bet she did have to stay off facebook! I haven't written a novel but the process seems similar to what i already do just on a much larger scale :)
