You will think I'm crazy, but I've started a new blog. I know, I know, how the hell am I going to manage you ask? Truth be told, I don't know.
I've had a bad case of writers block since I began querying two weeks ago and this is the first time life has come back into my writing. I need it. It needs me.
I went to the Metro Cooking Show in Houston this weekend and saw Paula Deen. She was a doll, as I expected, but part of the experience with my fellow Houston Blogger Chicks was that we got to meet someone else. Tara Wilson, an events guru. For those of you who don't know me, I was headed to interior design school before I switched to writing.
Decorations, holidays, new home ideas, they're what I live for! So when the story of The Beginner Housewife came to me, I was so excited to dive in. To bad when I started to outline I fell short.
Since the housewife and I have so much in common I figured it was best to write a new blog of me trying out my recipes (and failing), decorating tips, creative tips and more. You're welcome to stop in and check out the new digs.
Do not feel obligated to follow. This is my experiment, and so far the outlining is in full effect, and the blog is a nice relief I've needed.
The low down on the story The Beginner Housewife: Kate Phillips is dying to be Carrie Bradshaw, too bad the only column up for grabs is the newest article The Beginner Housewife. Desperate she grabs it for some income, worrying about ironing out details later. Considering she doesn't know anything about cooking, cleaning, or how to load a washer she's in way over her head. So when she meets Neil, the owner of her favorite restaurant rather than telling the truth she lies, and when they fall in love and marry she decides to keep up the charade. Any chance she gets she tries to horribly teach herself how to cook, having no success. With the help of her new found friends she manages to make a few items, until all comes crashing down when the truth comes out. They'll have to decide if love truly conquers all.
So there you have it. I'll allow you to peruse my new place as I stop in on yours! But I have to ask, how to you curve your writers block when nothing else seemed to work?
