Having recently joined the Insecure Writer's Support Group (both the main group and the Crit Circle) on Facebook, I figure I should post once a month Wednesdays as well.
This month, we're supposed to provide a brief introduction to ourselves. I'm Sandra Ulbrich Almazan, an indie science fiction/fantasy author. I write the SF Catalyst Chronicles series and the fantasy Season Avatars series (and yes, I'm crazy enough to do both at once). I work for an enzyme company, am married with a seven-year-old son, and am a big Beatles fan. If you'd like to know more about my books, please check out the other pages of this blog.
Tuesday night, while I was trying to figure out what to post, my son was so scared by one of his favorite shows that he couldn't fall asleep. This led to an even shorter-than-usual editing session. I have to admit that when I can't work on my stories, I get cranky. However, getting fifteen or thirty minutes to edit the next book in the Season Avatars series makes me feel better, even if I have to stay up late to do it. (I'm the kind of person who is happier getting something done than doing nothing.) So, if you're having a hard time squeezing writing into the rest of your life, or if you can't figure out what to do, just remember that we're all progressing step by step, rung by rung, as we climb Jacob's Ladder.
