My First Time

NO! I'm not describing my first time! Rather my first book. Sure, I've pimped it. But don't you ever wonder where the story came from?

I'm a bit of a geek. Yes, I admit it. My favorite channel on television is the SyFy channel. I wrote Dragons' Mate around 3:00 am. I had sat in the living room watching movie after movie.

Megacroc, Primeval, get the idea? I had reptiles on the brain!

I had my computer with me because I could. I just started writing. No, the movies didn't turn me on! By all rights, I should have had a horror story on my hand. WRONG. LOL.

No, instead I had an erotic menage. Strange how the mind works. Somehow, the creative side of my brain works. I don't even try to figure it out anymore. I go with the flow.

Notice how I said this was my first time? First time that I actually did something with my writing. Not right away though. Like everything else I'd ever written, I saved it and went on with life. Actually I went to bed. I don't usually stay up that late.

Well, I saved it and forgot about it. I had my best friend call me and ask if I'd been writing over the years. (We had been in the creative writing club in high school. Go Lancers!) I said yes. I didn't mention that I usually tossed them. After all, I'd never get published, right? She told me about a contest for a new writing company. I poo pooed the idea.

She kept nagging me and I admitted that yes, I did have something that might fit the requirements. So after going back and forth with her, I submitted.

You can only be called a chicken so long! LOL. You know what best friends are like! Pains in the ass!

I didn't win the contest. Neither did she! But our stories were accepted for publication anyway.

That was only the beginning...(all good horror stories start that way)
