I'm a professional writer of non-fiction... that is to say, I write product descriptions and craft project tutorials. :) Seriously, I'm thrilled that I make my living writing and being creative! I run a creative living website at happyhourprojects.com where I share daily DIY's and recipes, and I design inspiration projects for a couple major craft supply companies. What started out as a little craft blog has turned into a proper day job. Since last NaNo season, I'm now officially self employed! That gives me a lot more flexibility to raise my kids, volunteer at school, and break for the occasional 3pm martini (seriously, I should do that more often), but it's also a 7-day-a-week job that results in me working on my laptop in bed at midnight more often than not. ;)
This is NaNo season LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN for me! Actually, I am not planning on noveling, but it will be nice to fit some exercises in fiction into my writing routine. I have a fantastic region (OCGR shout-out!) and I LOVE connecting with fellow writers, so I'd never miss out on the fun, whether I'm writing this year or not!
