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...

Creative Writing, Ink and me

a few days ago, i came across a new writing resource (new to me, anyway. i think it's been around for a while). the person who directed me to it is Talei Loto, the author of Musings of an Aspiring Scribe.

started by publisher and children's author Olive O'Brien,"Creative Writing Ink offers online creative writing classes to writers around the world together with editing and critique services.

In addition, you can use our discussion forum, which is a free service. Writers can share their work, ideas and tips with other writers and obtain feedback...We also run monthly writing competitions based on excerpts posted on our forum, which will be published in our quarterly e-journal."

when i clicked on Talei's link, i found an interesting website with writer resources, editing services, a discussion forum, and a members' blog. the few posts were great, like "How to Write a Novel in 37 Easy Steps" by Catherine Ryan Howard.

i decided to contact Olive to see if i could contribute. since NanoWrimo is coming up, i offered a few posts i'd written about it in the past. Olive posted one of them today: "National Novel Writing Month."
