Writer, Aspiring Author, Adventurer, Traveler, Dreamer, Kayaker, Copywriter, Wine Enthusiast, Pizza Lover & Slightly Afraid of Children
Trouble was, when I looked in the mirror, I no longer saw an aspiring writer (or Cat Woman, which had always been the back-up plan). Instead, a tired, stressed, over-worked reflection stared back. It was time for a change. I decided to grab 2013 by the scruff and shake everything I could out of it. And I must admit, the results were pretty encouraging: I completed my first (rough) manuscript , ran my first 5k and 10k races, rode on a 100.2 mile bike tour (in a single day, thank you very much), nearly drowned during a mini-triathlon, squeezed in a lot of travel, and- most importantly- I was dreaming again. About writing.
In March of 2014 (with a lot of encouragement from husband), I took the leap and quit my job. I’m finally doing it, I’m going after my dream of being a published author.
The Scribbling Bumpkin is about a space to dream, dare, take risks, and occasionally scream into a pillow (what the hell was I thinking??). I love connecting with fellow dream chasers, so please read, enjoy, and feel free to share.
