wpid-wp-1437675098261.jpegHello!  And welcome to my little corner of the interwebs!

I’ve just overhauled my site, so there’s a totally new layout (that I’m excited about!) and other features my previous theme didn’t allow for.  I hope that this makes it a more enjoyable visit for you, my reader[s]. 🙂  Here’s a little bit about me:

I grew up in Colorado, went to El Paso, TX when I was in the Army. I wasn’t always fond of the city, but I ended up spending more than a decade there. I wanted to leave there for years, but the motivation just wasn’t fully there to turn my life upside down until I met a wonderful man in Pennsylvania, which is now the state I call home.

I’ve been writing short fiction since I was in high school, and I get a great deal of enjoyment out of crafting a world and creating a story that was just words in the ether before I put them on “paper.” I’ve recently been trying to do the weekly creative writing exercise prompt that Writer’s Digest has on their webpage, and when I complete them I’ll always post them here. You’ll also see a lot of my ramblings about the garden that my mom-in-law and I have, different life experiences, and occasional tales of my four-legged furry children.

Between this and working full time, I picked my book outline back up and hammer out the ugliest rough draft that National Novel Writing Month has ever seen. It’s going to be a painful revision process, not to mention long and drawn out as I figure out new ways to make their world fall into place.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my stories and rambling thoughts! I hope you enjoy them.

  1. Thanks for liking my blog post, Eliza. I’m new at this, so knowing that someone actually reads what I post motivates me to do more. And I like your layout. Still working on mine.

  2. Eliza, I’m glad I clicked on your name. Now I understand why you know so much about firearms and other topics you cover that I know little about. I also understand about being away from writing for years, then coming back to it. That’s also my story, and I must say the weekly prompts, story and poetry, have inspired me to write, write, write. Keep up the good work! Reatha

  3. Just found your site kind of round-about via Marge Cutter Tesch, and it looks like my kind of reading. I’ll be stopping by from time to time, and am looking forward to your posts.
