Oh lord, well, I’ve decided to try my hand at blogging and what the creative world has in store for me. My name is Desiree Scott and I live in Missouri, the beautiful part of the country known as “The Show-Me” state. I have just turned 30 years old and my beautiful daughter will be turning six on July 2nd. Where has the time gone?? It just seems like yesterday that I was pregnant and wondering, uncertain, about both of our futures. I was single and struggling, no place to raise a child. But Thank God, I figured it out pretty quickly. A word of warning: I love to talk and have been known as a chatterbox.
However, time seems to pass so quickly and I will try to keep up with this blog.
You see, I’m a writer. I do have an MBA in finance and currently enrolled in another degree program, English and Creative Writing. I know, weird combination, right? But I have been writing since I was sixteen and currently have an average of six novels started and multiple short stories completed.
By this time next year, I will have at least TWO novels finished and either self-published or by the route of tradition. I’m starting to lean towards self-publishing, NOT because I don’t think I’m good enough but because of the advantages that self-publishing will afford me, such as complete control, a BIG deal breaker there! I love control, professionally and personally but no, I’m not a whiner when things don’t go my way. I forge different paths and reality has a way of altering one’s intentions, you know?
Well, I think that’s enough about me for right now. I Wouldn’t want to bore you too soon, now would I? I will be posting excerpts of my stories and novels, as well as just chit chatting about everything and anything.
Everyone, enjoy your day and start a new day with a smile!!
