Well I am Jessica and am a new member of Writer's Block. I double majored back in college in Mass Communications and Psychology, and ended up going the psychology route for my career, and went on to get my Masters and am now a counselor in private practice. However, I have always written on the side, whether it be poems, short stories, or now a novel. I am also a Mom to a 20 month old son, so I'll be doing most of my writing now when my son is napping.
As for day one, I only got 390 words, falling short of the 1600 goal. I have the whole plot outlined in my head, but it was hard for me to get started, but hopefully it will get easier.
How are the rest of you doing?
