I guess introductions should be made by me for the sake of basic manners.
I have a name but it isn’t ghostiegirl. I would tell you my name but I want to be able to write a blog without people I know finding it. I’m 18, have no money and wish to be an author one day.
My mind is currently being taken over by two novels I have been working on. One is a sort of children’s fantasy which includes some elements of a dystopian and the other is a Gothic young adult novel set in the modern day and in the early 1700’s.
I’m hoping to finish one of them by the end of the year so I can edit and then send off to agents which should be fun. I know you’re probably setting yourself up for an automatic rejection when you query an agent but there’s no other way unfortunately. Either that or I walk into the dark and dangerous world of self-publishing.
I don’t have anything wrong with self-publishing but it’s very difficult to get somewhere if you are a self-published author and not all of us are Amanda Hocking.
I’ve written many blogs before but I’ve always just walked away from them or have deleted them. I usually get to a point that I stop posting and see no reason to. When you first create a blog, you fall in love and you post nearly every day but after a few weeks, the novelty wears off and you soon dread having to come up with another post. The other problem is readers. When you’re first starting off, you don’t usually have any and so have to work at getting people to come on your blog. Often, you will get tired and will eventually drop off the face of the blogging world.
I will now end this post as I have to go fill out job applications (stupid recession), write my novels, do my summer homework (yes, I am incredibly unlucky) and drink something (because I have a sore throat).
Happy Ghostings To All!
