Thursday Thirteen's my first Thursday Thirteen. A group of gals from Romance Divas turned me on to this. Please be forgiving with my very first attempt!

Thirteen Things about why I want to be a published novelist

1. I LOVE books and want to see my name on the cover (and on the inside page headings).
2. I'm a Leo, and I love attention - think book signings!
3. I need someplace to get rid of all the crazy characters and their problems that populate my brain.
4. I want a career that I can do anywhere. Writing can take place virtually anywhere in the world.
5. Part of me doesn't want to be forgotten. A book is something solid that will last for years even when I'm no longer here.
6. Reading has been such an integral part of my life that I couldn't imagine not being part of it in some way.
7. I want to be able to create emotions in people and give readers a ride that they won't soon forget.
8. I want to be able to work at home - this kind of goes with #4.
9. I'm certainly not in it for the money - but if I made a few dollars, I wouldn't be too upset.
10. I have to retire my husband after all the years of him supporting me.
11. I want to be able to go into a library and find a book that I've written.
12. To prove that my writing skills transcend technical writing.
13. Because I can't imagine doing anything else.

I finally figured out how to add an auto-links to this darn page! Fill in your info and you'll be added to my TT. Thanks!
