What To Call Yourself?

Happy Friday All,

I would've posted this earlier, but I wasn't feeling well last night. I'm doing better today, though. (YAY!)

Yesterday, NWHRWA's President, Jenn, was on Four Foxes One Hound Blog posting about calling oneself a writer. It's a great post, by the way, and I give Jeff (the hound) a lot of credit for hosting Jenn. She's smart and funny and most definitely a writer.

The other blog post I wanted to talk about was NWHRWA's Vice President, Stacey, being hosted by Jenn on Muse Tracks. Stacey is also very funny and smart. She and Jenn have a great dynamic working together to head up NWHRWA.

When I grow up I want to be a published author. I'm already an adult, so one down, one to go!

Question for the day:  What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you end up being what you wanted to be, or did you change your mind?

Have A Fantastic Friday!

Thanks for the plug, Bethany!
When I was little, I wanted to be a vet. Then a dear pet died. That nixed the whole idea. Then I wanted to be a horse jockey. Nope. Couldn't do that. I grew too tall (Though I'm only 5'5"). So then, as I blossomed into my teen years in the 80's, I decided I wanted to be either one of those babes in the rock music videos or be in the business scene of the music industry. I hit a little closer to home on this dream. I did both (And that's all I'm going to say about that!)
Anyway, I didn't know I wanted to be a writer until almost 4 years ago.

Thanks again, for the shout out, Bethany!

No problem. LOL I could see you as a "rocker" (whether in front or behind the camera) LOL Maybe at the April meeting? :-)

Hey Bethany- Thanks for the kind words about my first attempt at blogging. I'll be there every Thursday as I'm part of the Muse Tracks' team.
What did I want to be when I grew up? Well, it surely wasn't a rocker girl! Can you imagine me? Now Jenn, it so well suited with the long blonde hair and pretty eyes. No, I wanted to be an interior designer. I remember designing a house around a round bedroom. I even envisioned a custom round bed! Whew! Sounds a bit like a sleazy XXX movie.
After that, I wanted to be an artist and spent a few years taking lessons and then I wanted to be a doctor....no writer aspirations until a few years ago although I always dabbled at writing stories.

I have a friend who thought about interior design. She's got the right touch. I have a sister who studied art (she has another career, now).

Maybe one day we'll have Jenn's pirate stories and your romantic suspenses flying off the shelves :-)

Thanks for linking to my Hound Day blog, Bethany.
Jenn's appearance drew record crowds yesterday.
Sounds like y'all have a lot of fun down in the Houston area. We lived in Shreveport for about 26 years and some people consider that East Texas.

Hey thanks for dropping by!

Not a problem--it was a good post. When I had Kerrelyn Sparks on here I had a record amount of people come through.

Don't be a stranger...got several things planned for this blog...including an "official" book review, my monthly published author interview, and some other plans coming up later this year...there's a lot planned for this blog :-)

Hi, Bethany,
I was torn between wanting to be a famous writer or a spy. I'm glad I chose the 'write' path for my life!

Thank you for dropping by.

Maybe you could a spy in one of your stories?
