It's hard to believe I've been blogging for over four years. This blog started in December 2003 - I hadn't even finished the first draft of my first novel yet.
Back then, not a lot of people knew about "blogs" and I guess I was one of those pioneers. Well, not that it means anything. No one reads this blog anyway.
Still, I'm fascinated by the stuff I wrote about, my navigation through the publishing process, and how I've changed in about five years. I sure hope I've become a better writer and blogger. It's also amazing how much has changed. I started out as a total newbie, trying to finish writing my first novel with no idea if I would ever get published. And now, not only have I achieved that goal, I've also met so many other writers -- some are starting out just like I was, and some are well-established and on their way to great things. It's rather inspiring.
In the process of reorganizing my blog (I just love this "label" feature), I've fallen in love with the blog again. It's nostalgic to read through my thoughts and experiences in the past four and half years. It's been an incredible self-discovery. I'm so glad I started this blog way back when.
