Welcome to the Writesofluid blog, Heather!

What do you write? Do you specialise in a certain medium/genre?

I currently write real-life “lessons” on my blog, and that’s it for now.

I plan to start working on a book in the very near future.

I have a few ideas, which include fiction, non-fiction, and a children’s book.

How long have you been writing? Where did it all begin?

I started my blog at the end of April, so I’ve been “writing” almost two months! I had always admired my friends who had blogs. One day, I told one of them that I had been thinking of blogging and she asked me why I didn’t just start my own. So, (after a bit of reassurance) I did.

What made you decide to take part in the #wpad challenge?

In May, a friend and fellow Navy wife/blogger started a “Blog Everyday in May” challenge. I thought it was a neat idea. That way, even on days I couldn’t think of anything to write about, I could still write!

Have you found it easy, so far, to write something every day?

When I am able to get time. I love writing every day, and have found it incredibly easy to do when the time is there.

In what ways has the process of working from a prompt challenged you?

It challenges me to learn.

I haven’t known about or done all of the topics, so it has forced me to research things and learn. I love it!

Have you found working from prompts to be a good way of exercising creativity?

Yes. I have to do a bit of thinking to complete some days. I enjoy this. Because while I love to write, I am not always the most creative.

Have any of the prompts/your responses inspired you? For further writing, perhaps?

Of course!

The more I write the more I want to write!

What is your favourite entry so far and why?

There have been a few entries that I have thoroughly enjoyed writing, all for different reasons. I would have to say my absolute favorite was “Favorite Fictional Character”. It took me a while to decide on my favorite, but once I did I really had a lot of fun with it!

Would you recommend the #wpad challenge to other writers/bloggers? Why?

I would definitely recommend it. It gets creativity flowing by writing about things I may not have normally written about.

It has also given me a larger audience.

A more diverse topic selection brings in a more diverse audience. I also don’t think all of the hits from England are a coincidence. 😉 Thank you!

You’re welcome, and thanks so much for taking the time to share your experiences with us. Best of luck with that book!

Heather’s bio:

I spent my childhood in the “Coolest Small Town, USA 2011”, Lewisburg, West Virginia. After completing high school and two years of college, I got married and headed to California with my husband (U.S. Navy), where I returned to school and became a licensed practical nurse!

My early 20’s were spent traveling across the country with my husband and working in the healthcare field. In 2009, I quit working outside the home and became a stay at home mom; I became a mom, again, in 2011.

When I am not running my children to school, play dates, the park or to visit Daddy’s ship, I enjoy being active in my church, reading, and, now, writing my blog.

My secret aspiration, for a long time, has been to write a book. Prior to starting my blog, I had never shared this with anyone. Now, I am on my journey to balance husband, kids, church, house, and writing.
