The First Step

Let me begin by introducing myself:  My name is Sarah.  I'm in my twenties, married, and have two children (ages two months and eighteen months.)  After giving birth to my first child (an adorable little boy who I love more than I ever thought possible) I decided to be a stay at home mom.

Now with two children (both under the age of two) my life is pretty hectic.  For some strange reason, I want to add to the craziness in my life by pursuing a writing career.  It's actually a simple reason: I love writing and always have!  It's  a great passion of mine and one that I hope I never let go of no matter how hectic my life gets. So I have decided that since I love writing so much and since I can do it from home, there is nothing stopping me from launching a writing career except for myself.  

I have taken the first tiny steps toward reaching this goal by doing two things: starting this blog and contacting a local monthly newspaper.  So right now the two big challenges in my life are: adjusting to life with two kids and starting a writing career.  I will track my progress on this blog as I continue taking small steps forward to becoming a good mom and a professional writer.  Wish me luck and stay tuned!
