A Paragraph About Me

Hi everyone, my name is Beth and I have wanted to be a writer of story ever since I told my first tale to my little brother and sister as I drove them to their friends homes or after school lessons and fell in love with their natural abilities to believe and delight in fairies and goblins.

I am a 67 year-old grandmother now and have had that desire to write re-kindled as I experience how much my granddaughter loves to sit on laps, turn the pages of a book and listen to her mom and dad read her the words that bring alive for her the worlds and antics of those ancient keepers of a child's imagination, the elves, the fairies the goblins, et all .
Over the years I have done many things to try and think of story ideas, how to decide if my writing should be fiction or non-fiction, how to chose an audience to write to, how to make the ideas relevant to my audience, whether to entertain with my writing or inform, whether to write my stories or speak them as a story-teller.

The reason I am creating this site is to ask you to journey with me as I try to make sense of my life experiences in light of all the information about writing, becoming a writer and what to write about that you and I have at our fingertips on the internet.

I am hoping that you and I together can shape this blog into being some of the highest quality information that anyone can find on the internet.

So what qualifies me…

I received a Bachelor's Degree from Dominican University in Sociology and Psychology. I've taken Continuing Education classes my entire life in subjects like chemistry, physics, economics, psychology, religion, education, history, story telling, singing and more.

I know what it is to research. I've done it all my life and frankly, I enjoy it very much. I like seeing if what I believe about something I have experienced or thought about in real life or through books coincides with what the well- educated experts think, feel and believe about it.

I have raised a beautiful daughter alone while working in a family business bookkeeping, interviewing, hiring and dispatching, childcare and nursing personnel to homes, hospitals and hotels in my local metropolitan area.

I am now retired and realize that I have shelves filled with those black and white college journal notebooks and binders filled with stories, ideas, how-tos, advice, and reflections that I have written over the years and realize "yikes" I haven't finished writing any of these beginnings. Over the years, I would tip-toe past them when getting something from a shelf nearby afraid I might awaken a sleeping babe who would demand all of my time and attention at a time in my life when I couldn't give it. I'm thinking that it is about time to get to the middles and ends of all those beginnings, to wake up the baby and start playing with it?

So, now that I have the time and with the internet, the resources to pursue my lifelong love-hate relationship with writing, I say hate because I believe sometimes that my avoidance of finishing those stories and other writings wasn't just a time and schedule problem, but an emotional or psychological avoidance problem as well, and if I'm ever going to be a good 'parent' of those infant ideas that I have stored in those notebooks, I ask you to journey with me and be my greatest fans when appropriate and my greatest critics when needed.

And what I want the most honest and truthful critique about is how much and in what ways I am helping you to achieve your goals. If I'm not helping you with your goals then I am not achieving mine. And I'm too old and my granddaughter is growing too fast for me to keep tip-toeing past those shelves any longer.

I am hoping to find my passion for writing and share with you and my granddaughter the tremendous knowledge I am gaining about the world of the internet, how it works, how to navigate the many obstacles, etc., that we are all a part of and that she will be an intimate part of someday. Actually, she is already answering her mom's smartphone now when I call and she is only 3 years old. I am hoping to be able to hold up my end of the conversations we will someday have about what I do all day. And I want it to be something that she will have had some experience with and most probably will be very interested in.

Awesome goals Elizabeth!

With the right amount of hard work, motivation and dedication, I know that you CAN and WILL reach these goals and likely exceed them. The first step to building an online business is to set yourself some goals. Now that you have these in place you now have something to work towards.

This is going to take time and you won't see results right away. Don't let this discourage you though. The work you put in today, is going to pay off later. In some cases it will continue to pay you for years to come.

Stick with the training, work hard at this, and ask questions whenever you have them.

I will be here to help you out and answer any questions you may have. I really am looking forward to working with you Elizabeth and helping you reach these goals.

Keep in touch and I will talk to you soon

Hey Elizabeth how are things going so far? I just thought I would check in and see how you are getting along so far. I hope all is well and you are enjoying yourself here within the community.

I also wanted to remind you that you only have 4 days left to lock in your savings of 59% off of your first month of the premium membership. (Comes out to only$19 for your first month) You will also gain instant access to my exclusive bonuses when you join through me.

While this is totally up to you and there's no obligation to go premium, I would hate to see you miss out on this incredible deal, as well as my valuable bonuses.

I hope you are rocking it Elizabeth and making some good progress in your training so far. Do let me know if there's any way I can help or be of any assistance to you.

Your Friend, Scott

Hi Scott,
Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for your emails and for being so supportive. There is so much to accomplish in the beginning and not being super familiar with social media and where to find things yet, it has taken time to find my way back to your well-wishes. I do appreciate them very much.
Thank you for your generous offers of help.
All the best.
