I'm Laurie Dalzell, aka LaurieD, aka Skwirrel, aka Mom to a select pair. I'm sure there are others, but these are the ones I tend to respond to.
I write fiction - mostly of a dark nature, not quite horror, not quite romance, not quite mystery or suspense. Most of this blog will be about writing - bits of what I'm learning about the process, what I like, what I find frustrating, etc. Once it gets up and really running, not just gimping along, I'll have links to stories available for download/purchase. I've had a few short stories published, however at the present moment, my contracts have all expired and I have nothing available for your reading. At the moment. I'm working on fixing that.
I have a day job, which won't get much attention here probably, but it does take up a big part of my day. For now, my writing time is squeezed in along the edges of it and all the other things that make up the day of an average mom.
Your comments are always welcome, though I expect people to respect each other and their opinions. So, on the off chance that something controversial should come up, please play nice.
I tend to post things sporadically - I know, not the best way to attract a readership - but that's the way it is. I'm on NetworkedBlogs - when I do add a post here, links will be automatically posted to my fb page and my Twitter page. A link also appears in my AW sig line, should you know me from the writer forum.
So, like I said above, welcome. Pull up a chair and feel free to put your feet up for a while.
Pardon the dust while I get things set up. ;)
