Hi and welcome to my blog! My name is Jena Lang and I write historical romance. Up until now I've been reluctant to jump on the blogging bandwagon for lack of time. I couldn't think how to carve out the some 20 odd minutes I'd need to write a post that would interest anyone but my mother. And then, quite unexpectedly, my life took a drastic turn. As a result, I have lots of free time on my hands.
I bet you're wondering what happened. I wish I could say I won the lottery, quit my day job, and am now able to do whatever I please. But that would be a big, fat lie. Sort of. I can do as I wish Monday-Friday, only I didn't hit it rich. The truth is, I was laid off from the job I've had for the last six years. :sniff sniff: Really, I'm okay. It was a sad day but not nearly as tragic as it sounds. I knew the axe was going to fall and strike me sooner or later. So here I am, looking for employment and re-analyzing my weekly writing goals.
At my former job I was on the computer for almost the entire day. After 7-8 hours of typing, I was in no mood to jump on the laptop and write when I got home. That is, until I took an online class from Laurie Schnebly called New Year, New You and learned ways to push through my computer burnout. Since then I've made progress on my WIP and joined Twitter and Facebook (click on Contact tab for links). Now I'm blogging so that I can share my writing journey with you, my writer friends, and anyone else who cares to read about my life as an aspiring romance writer.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment or ask questions about me or my writing. And check back soon for more, including a look at my favorite opening hooks and history's best fashion trends.
