Hello and thanks for dropping by the Inkwell.
I used to state I never used an inkwell, but as of 2011, I now have two inkwells (or ink bottles) and two fountain pens. I can be found with a pen of some sort, from my Zebra pens to the fountains, in my hand at some point during the day. I write all the time, from using my laptop and my Royal DeLuxe typewriter, to any piece of paper I can find on hand. Even down to Netflix envelopes when I’m lacking blank paper.
As of 2011, I am an unpublished author, working towards a career in writing children’s picture books. I received my first rejection letter in the fall of 2011, and while it may have slowed me down some, it has not changed the strange desire to be published.
I can honestly say that anyone who enters the world of writing and attempting to get published is a might crazy, but along the way, I have met many other crazies who can’t stop.
Escaping the Inkwell is mostly my chronicles of the writing life, or lack of at some points. At some point I hope it will be the chronicles of be a published author, but for now, it’s my ramblings about writing.
If you are ever in the mood to see what I do on the side; flash fiction, poetry, random bits of trivia and thought; you can stop over at Kate’s Bookshelf. The place where I work on writing and anything that is not about writing, but written.
