Introduction

This is the post excerpt.

My name is Alexandra Mars. If you guessed it, I am an inspiring author pursuing my goal to become published. My friends, call me, Alex, and welcome to my blog. I write fantasy and science fiction because I find that genre fascinating to me, for there are so many paths a writer can take in his/her world.

I have been creating stories my whole life when I was a child, my Barbie dolls and My Little Ponies all had their own personalities. In middle school I discovered my creative writing skills, and I have remained on this path ever since. The journey to arrive at this point hasn’t been easy for me, and at times been very arduous. Now, I see excellent things in my future, and I hope you and I can take the next stage of this wonderful journey together.

You’re probably wondering what’s the next stage, I’ll tell you, my friend. In 2017 I will release my debut saga here on my site. I am excited!

In the meantime, I will be discussing many topics on writing and my life in my blog.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you continue to follow my blog.

I’ve been improving my editing skills by reading books on how to edit. Then using the techniques I learned, bybputting them into practice.

It has been difficult. I’m learning to see my manuscript in my readers’ eyes and using these techniques that I’ve never used before. It can be very overwhelming and very discouraging. Sometimes, I just wanna walk away.

I’m committed.

When I get discouraged or overwhelmed that is when the ADD kicks in and I become very easily distracted by different things. That can be such a frustrating experience.

So how do I deal with the frustration? I take a short break, work on another project, or provide time for my mind to rest, allowing my creative juices to rejuvenate.

I am making a lot of progress on my manuscript and I see it coming together in the way that I want.
