Ashley Redbird...Writer?

So, if you read before I am struggling with what I want to do with my life. Ideally I'd love to stay at home with Riley, but being a single mom doesn't allow me that luxury. A friend of mine encouraged me to write. I always have so many ideas in my head, but when it comes to writing I am very much ADD with it. I am by n means a writer, I summarize everything I write. I remember when I was in college, every 5 weeks we had to write a 8 page paper, my classes only lasted 5 weeks at a time, so you think by the end of my few years there I'd have writing an 8 page paper down. Nope, I don't think I ever got to a full 8 pages. I have ideas, I just don't know how to express them or how to expand on them to make them longer. So, that is what I thought when Lauren told me to write. But since I have no idea what the heck I want to do, I thought, what the hell? My good author friend, Berinn, told me to just write. She said it took her a year to write her first story. Oi, that's a long time. But if I just keep writing, I will at least get my ideas out and who knows what will come form that?! I still want to make book covers for authors too, so I hope I can do more of those soon as well. Wish me luck!!!


  1. I suggest you hire out as a summarizer for writers - a lot of authors - especially indies need someone to help them with the back cover copy - the blurb, if you will. This is easier coming from an outside source because there's an added objectivity to it. I'm working on your interview as well and Will get that out asap as well as my need for a cover for, not one but three books. I just have to get my head wrapped around some issues I'm dealing with right now.... yeah.

    lol. love following you, girl, hang in there! and you're doing awesome as a single mom!

  2. I never thought about that. I will have to chat with you about how I would go about doing that because I know the back cover is what gets people to buy books, if the cover doesn't work as well :)

    I understand things can get busy, I'm patiently waiting and THANK YOU! It is so nice to hear that I am doing a good job :) <3
