First Post – Here We Go!

I did not see myself starting a blog. But here I am! So far it has been okay . . . if a little overwhelming . . .

I suppose I should introduce myself. I’m Hope. Hi. I am five months away until my childhood is officially over . . . not really looking forward to it. But we must all grow up, whether we like it or not. I can’t say my maturity level will grow as my age does, though.

What will you be expecting from this blog? If you were asking yourself that question. Even if you weren’t, I’m still going to give you the answer. Frankly, I have no idea. I have a fuzzy idea in my head, but no definite plan. I’m not really one to plan things when it comes to writing. I prefer to just jump into the water and splash around until I figure out how to swim. Speaking of writing, you will be seeing a lot of information about this series I’m trying to write. I can’t wait for the day when I finally get the first book published and I am able to share my characters with the world! I won’t lie. I probably spend way more time with my characters than I do with my real life friends.

Besides being a community college student, I don’t really have much of a social life that is outside of my bedroom. But what do you expect from an introvert? Granted there are times when I really do need to get outside and interact with humans, but most of the time, I think I would be happy living as a hermit. I’m not shy, unless you throw me into a pit full of human beings I have never met in my life, than I am typically found with the pet animal(s) (if there are any) or flat up against the wall, praying that nobody talks to me. But if you want to get me talking, just mention Commander Shepard or Narnia and you won’t be able to shut me up!

Okay, is there anything else I need to mention? First time blogger here, remember that! Um . . . if I’m angry or you make me angry, the only thing to calm me down or get back on your good side is to offer me caramel, or chocolate, but caramel is a must. Hmm . . . caramel . . . Oh! Just thought of something. I mentioned earlier I’m going to be posting information about the series I’m reading, well I’m also going to be posting little excerpts from the chapters I’ve written or scenes I’ve written out. Now, since this really isn’t a critique page, you’re not required to critique my decent writing, but if you find you can’t help it, then go right ahead! I could always use some feedback – good and bad. How else am I going to get better?

If you have any advice for a first time blogger, then please share! All of this is very new to me, so my confidence is hiding around here somewhere . . . Oh, well, I’ll find it one day.

Enough said! Let the adventure begin!

    YAY for Hope!!!!! I’m so glad that you did it!! I’m Ecstatic!!!!!! 😀

    Yikes, when you said you are only five months away from “the end of childhood”, I just realized that I only have three months *totally freaks out and starts hyperventilating* Alright, gotta calm down. Deep breathes… Okay, all better.

    Now, back to your post. I can’t wait to hear about your characters! I love all posts that have to do with characters!! Oh, I totally understand the contenment of being a hermit. Haha, that analogy of what you would do in a pit of human beings is so me! I would be pressed as tightly to that wall as possible and wishing that I could turn invisible. (not even kidding)

    Well, that is nice to know about the caramel. I will defentitly keep that in mind. Also, just to give you a fair warning, I probably will not be able to help myself with critiquing. Just a heads up. 😛

    My advice is to just have fun with it!!! Nobody is sitting at their computer, staring at the screen, judging you and your blog, and wishes death upon you. Or, if someone out there is, then they are just wierd and they can leave if they want to. Blogging is about having fun and sharing your quirky ideas and thoughts with a community of other people that are just as wierd and quirky as you. So, do what you want and add your own flare! 😉

        Well, I am not at all an expert in any way, shape, or form. I mostly just guess and pretend like I know everything, but I’ll help if I can. 🙂

        Awesome! Thanks:) Since we’re on the subject…. it’ll be just one-ish question, I promise …. how do you make categories and put specific posts in those categories?
