Okay, so I’ve put up this neat template and been fiddling with things. I also signed up for that Adsense program through Google since by doing so on Blogger it brings them revenue which will in turn help them keep the site up and running. It also means that Blogger can have new features in the future when they have the appropriate amount of revenue coming to them. So, basically this will be my silly little blog. Nobody is reading it right now, but that’s because it’s so brand new. As such I guess I could post what my mission is on this.

My Mission:
Basically I hope to use this Blogger site in order to post chapters to a Blog Novel. I’ve seen people do it and a I just really would like to write something and have it available some place, and Blogger is the best place to do it.
What kind of novel? Anyone who knows my writing will know I tend to write from the female perspective or a child’s perspective. I’ve already labeled this site, so I’ll just repeat what I want to write: a young adult fantasy novel. Basically I want to write something that will deal with children in some way (roughly in that near puberty age since it’s a good point in time to write in regards to children), and I happen to like fantasy quite a bit. I’m not entirely sure what the story is going to be about quite yet, nor the characters, type of world, or anything. I’ve been creating my own little fantasy worlds for so long now I imagine I’ll think of something interesting over the next few weeks. As soon as I come up with a compelling enough idea to write about I will start writing chapters for it, and obviously I’ll be posting them on here. Then I get to see how the idea develops.

So just sit back anyone who happens to be wandering through here. Who knows what will be popping into my head later on…
