Another Saturday Rushing In

My Saturdays rush up on me. I spend my weeks working as a Practice Manager for an Internal Medicine physician. When I’m not at work, I’m taking my three teenage daughters to practice, somewhere that’s inevitably nowhere near home. I bring them home, cook, spend a few seconds with the hubby and hit the bed to get ready to do it all over again. It’s absolutely who I am. My girls mean the world to me and being their mom is my best accomplishment so far. I love them. I love my life.

But I have this itch(not that kind folks–I know where your minds went!). It’s unrelenting and undeniable. I itch to write. So I’m scratching that itch, using any spare second I have to pen my stories. And it’s yet another thing about my life that I love. I’m relatively new to this writing game. Publication is the goal–and I’m plugging away, doing everything in my power to see this goal met. I’m learning. That’s a process in and of itself. Blade sharp and pure, that’s how I want my writing to be so that when my readers get the finished product, it’s the very best of Lea Griffith. I’ve decided I’m going to devote an entire blog category about my journey toward becoming published. But for today, it’s just another Saturday rushing in.

I’m going to see my nephew play soccer and then I’m coming home to write. Tomorrow, I’m going to post on Six Sentence Sundays (thanks to the incomparable Sidney Bristol for the link) Yep, six sentences of my current WIP are going up tomorrow for any and all to see. Scary stuff that, but it’s another part of the process for me. I’m doing so many exciting things to see my goal of becoming published met–I can’t wait to tell you about it!

One last thing before I go:  I had plans this week to get this blog looking a little bit more like me. Shout out to Amanda Kelsey–Diva!!–because of her that’s one more thing off my plate. She took a couple of ideas and a couple of pictures and turned into an amazing header and background. If you’re looking for a graphic artist whose got mad chops you should visit her at: http://razzdazzdesign.com/ .

Until next time, peeps, Happy Reading 🙂

I’m here!!

Today started off like any other Saturday. Except for the pollen–that lovely green haze over my entire world–can’t forget the pollen. I slept later than normal, but I have 3 kids who go-go-go, and I deserved that extra 2 hours, yes I did. I knew I had a plan:  do a bit of writing, re-writing, do some cleaning, start a blog.

Few things you should know about me:  1. I adore my family, 2. I will break your face if you stare cross-ways at my Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls, and 3. I am a gadget lover but I am technologically incompetent. That’s being nice. I know my limits. I’m not ashamed. You say “Twitter”, I say “Do who?” You say, “Blog” I say “You don’t have to be all nasty and stuff!” I’m lingo deficient. ‘wtf’ doesn’t mean to me what it means to everyone else. My ‘wtf’ probably means something much worse.  The truth? I didn’t know what ‘wtf’ stood for until my 12 year old told me about 2 weeks ago. It means what it’s supposed to mean to me now…but then? Yeah, not a clue. 

So, I love all things electronic, but social media kicks my arse. The lingo, the ins and outs, I shudder when I think about them. But here I am: with a fresh, shiny new blog  thanks to the amazing Angel Graham–social media/PR extraordinaire.  This doesn’t give you much more than a hint as to who I am or what my plans are. I promise, that’s coming–my plans are huge, you know, rule the world, run this mutha’, etc., etc. But for today–I’m gonna revel in this accomplishment. I’ve gotta blog peeps! WTF  😀
