I’ve been so entranced by the iPad, I haven’t created anything to post about!

Well that’s not true, I’ve been writing again.

I’ve been writing, I think, since I was 14. At that time, my aspirations was to be the next 16-year old author (I think I misread somewhere that Christopher Pike – my idol at that time – was first published at age 16).

My first manuscript took a little over a year to finish; I was banging away on the only computer in the house 24/7 (I don’t remember the model, but I think it was running Windows 3.1).

I submitted the manuscript when I was 17 I think, although I must admit I did a slipshod of it. Not surprisingly, I recieved a rejection letter – it took them 2 years to get back to me; I suspect that my manuscript got chucked in a corner for a while, but I’m grateful that they took the time to get back to me (and even sent my manuscript back – as opposed to just chucking it out).

Yes, I don’t use conventional pen and paper to write.

The app I’m using is called Notes Plus – I’ll talk about it some other time, but it rocks!

Writing fiction, I find, is not something that could be shared easily in a blog format. I can tell you I’m in the planning stage, but it doesn’t make for very interesting blog entries.

So I do apologise for the lack of posts recently, I’ll try to fit some sketching or zentangling in and posts regularly again.
