Shut Up and Do It!

It's been about five years since I put my writing dreams on hold for the more immediately promising graduate school, two years since I accepted a full time job that requires a minimum of ten hours in the car a week, and approximately six months since I stopped nagging my husband: "But if I JUST had a SPACE of my OWN in this HOUSE, I might ACTUALLY be ABLE to WRITE something," because he finally began attic renovation. And so, here I am, in my remodeled space, with no more excuses, in my cozy little attic office, ready to blog and roll! From this day on, I can no longer say that I'm restricted from doing what I really love. Here, in this place; in my attic, I will tell you my stories. Outside of this room, I am a wife, a stepmom, a counselor, an employee, a daughter, a sister, a neighbor, and a friend. Here, I am a writer, and I can't wait to tell you MY stories from MY attic.


  1. I can't wait to read your stories, Mandalin! I love you!

  2. YAY! Very exciting. Congrats on the new space and happy writing. :)
