Hi. My name is Michala and I’m a writer. WTH!!!! How the heck can I call myself a writer if I’m NOT writing?

But this is my 200th post and it’s a great number, don’t you think? And it is here I will begin again. My CREATIVE goals:
Write daily, even for five minutes. Edit my three novels and get two self-published while waiting to hear back regarding the third. Join an online writing critique group and possibly find one locally that fits my schedule. And I’m gonna….
