Jen The Writer

So now that I’m a professional writer, I’ve got to come up with witty things to say so that you’ll all be interested in reading my work.

I’ve always kept mountains upon mountains of journals which sadly, went into the dumpster one day after I suspected that my teenage daughters had been reading them.  It’s not that I ever even looked back on what I had written, it was just fun to sit down at the end of a day and pour all my thoughts out onto a page.  On the few occasions that I did look back on what I’d written, it was pretty pathetic and adolescent sounding.  So much of it had to do with whatever guy I currently had a crush on.  Yes, this was in my forties.  I learned to not take myself too seriously.

Now I’m writing fiction which is a total blast because I get to make all this stuff up.  Want to date a rock star who plays a Fender Stratocaster?  Want to have sex with a big wave surfer who also doubles as a male escort?  He’s just a few keystrokes away.

Stay tuned to find out what I’m working on next...
