Hello, everyone. Welcome to my first post on Writer’s Block. This will be an introduction to who I am, and what I hope to accomplish with this blog. My name is K.D. Field, and I am a wife to a wonderful husband that puts up with all of my weird little quirks, a stay-at-home mother to two amazing children, and an English major at Arizona State University. I am also a novice writer, with the goal of writing a novel.
This blog will be a place for me to develop my voice, and style, as a writer, which entails sharing snippets of writings, story ideas, short stories, and/or post about issues I may be have with developing my writing. I will also post about my journey in writing, and finishing my novel.
I have been greatly influenced by authors like Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Jim Butcher, J.R.R. Tolkien, and R.A. Salvatore. There are so many more, but listing them all would take forever.
I have a love of character driven stories. After all, if you don’t care about the character(s), why would you care about the story?
This will also be a place where I will share books, or short stories, that I have read, or am reading, any information I hear about books I am excited about being released, or any information about authors I love to read, and/or am inspired by. The reason for this is, as quoted by one of my favorite authors, Stephen King, “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write.”
My hope is that you all will follow along with me, maybe even write your own work as we go forward, and be my connection to the audience I hope to have.
My first steps will, hopefully, be to get my novel figured out, then plotted, and then written. Having people I am accountable to will, again, hopefully, be the push I need to stick with it, and finish what I start.
So, again, welcome to Writer’s Block, come on in, take a look around, and make yourself at home. Let’s get writing.
