Welcome to my dream…
One day several years ago, I decided to stop dreaming about writing and start doing it. One of my first steps was to order some business cards that said, “Alison Stegert: Writer.” They reminded me to stop thinking, “Someday…” and start creating opportunities.
Creating–that’s what I’ve been doing for the past decade. I have come a long way from that initial vague urge to write. I’ve honed my efforts, focusing on writing kidlit, mostly middle grade (for readers 9-13). I’ve learned a lot from writing four novels and umpteen short stories, and I continue to learn. I’m growing as a writer, and now, as doors are beginning to open, I’m on my second pack of business cards.
One of the windfalls of this writing gig is that I’ve found my tribe. I have made so many lovely friendships over the years. When my writing buddies have a writing breakthrough, I get as excited as if it were my own. And I know when my publishing breakthrough finally comes, they’ll be cheering for me.
