Intro to me

I started out this blog thinking most of you that would be reading this blog at this time would know me personally but it occured to me that I may still need to introduce myself to some of you. I am a twenty-one year old girl trying to find herself in this world, trying to find out where she belongs. At the moment my job is to travel by boat around the Pacific Ocean repairing a computer system when it breaks. However, I don't have much else to do as the system works fine for a while before crashing for a few days that we spend hours fixing it before running smoothly again. That leaves me plenty of hours in a week for my passion: writing (and reading...). I set myself a goal of sending a book out to get published by the end of the year. I'm happy to say that I finished the rough draft of it by the middle og July. Unfortunately, it is a very rough draft. Now I need to go back through the story and rewrite the emotional story into the plot. That sounds like fun. However, I have forbidden myself from touching that story again until the beginning of September. In that time I am reading books and articals on things like emotional structure, how to write better scenes and dialogues, how to make better characters, and finally how to get a book published now adays. It's an interesting time, even if I do need to put my readig aside for learning things job related every few hours. I'm getting a lot of hope for a story I had developed writer's block on.
Another project I'm keeping at the back of my mind as I read these thinngs is a series I'd like to write on an Earth colony called Aurora. I think the series would be awesome if I could make the colony right but it's fun just having the experience of creating Aurora.
Well, that's all I can think of for now. If you're interested in following my journeys, go through my profile to my travel blog. (You may also be interested in the other blog. It's a work-in-progress story in blog form about a mystical world I'm creating as the character journeys through it.)
So long for now, I'll talk to you another time.
