Well, this is my first blog post ever! I’ve actually been playing with this idea for a while now and have finally done what my mind has been telling me to do. So, I’ll just start this thing out by introducing myself a bit.
First off, my name is Tahnee, my mom apparently had some fun with spelling this one. I’m 25 years young and I live in a wonderful city (note the sarcasm). No, it really isn’t so bad. As long as you can find something to do and not get bored or tired of doing the same thing over and over and over and over again. I mean, we do have a casino and a waterpark, but nowadays who doesn’t? That’s why you’ll find me sitting behind my computer every night doing the one thing on this planet that is my absolute favorite thing to do.
Not journalism or nonfiction or anything to that sort. My thing is to just let my mind loose on the pages on the screen. Let myself escape into world’s that only my mind could come up and believe me, there’s some pretty crazy stuff up there. I could write for hours each and every night (which I do) and still not want to stop when I know I need to be getting ready for bed so I can wake up the next morning feeling refreshed for work. Everybody loves to do that. NOT!!
I have been writing stories and even some poetry for as long as I can remember. I started to write my first novel when I was in high school, unfortunately it isn’t published yet. I don’t let that get me down though. I keep going no matter how many finished projects are saved to my robot shaped USB drive. I keep sending out those horrible query letters to the many literary agents that are out there only to get rejected more than once. I’ll still keep going and have a blast doing it.
Other than writing, I spend time working behind a desk at my job and hanging out with my dog, Baer, at night while my husband works second shift. Still, writing seems to take up most of my evenings and I know I’m not the only one out there who feels this way. I’m just waiting for the right person to discover my work and the rest will be history.
I guess that’s all for this first blog post of mine. Don’t worry, I’ll be back in a day or two to rant and rave about whatever is going on with my life or if I come up with something I just can’t keep to myself.
