My name is Elizabeth Mueller and I am a writer.
Whew, that was the hardest confession ever. Just kidding. More like the biggest ego-puffing thing I can ever say besides the fact that I have such lovely kidlets. There I go again . . .
Okay, well, I grew up in the hot, little corner of Texas. It is the most western point if you look on the map. El Paso.
My family was poor. Poor. Poor. Okay, not that poor, but poor enough that my little sister and I spent hours illustrating hundreds of pages of stories. (Yes, we even drew way into the wee hours of the dawn!) Kinda like graphic novels with the bubbles and all.
We surely let our minds soar higher than the clouds--beyond the galaxies.
I've always loved living in my made-up worlds. I am goddess there. I create beings. I kill beings. I bring them to their knees. They do as I command. Alright, not all the time because these little characters of mine take on minds of their own and take control of the plot and create havoc a lot of the time until I feel that I've lost myself to the point that it sounds good as it is and shouldn't interfere anymore with my writerly wisdom.
*Sigh* I know you know how that goes. Right?
I've always loved writing. Always. Before I learned how to write, I drew stories. I've always been a story teller. By the time I collected 6 finished, unedited novels, I decided it was time to take it a step further.
So I learned all the rules. I worried over them because I wrote very flowery and had a love affair with adverbs. I attended writers conferences and drew closer to writing friends. (Wow, there's a world full of us!)
I've received a number of rejections thus far and now, am frantically polishing my WIPs for another submission. Hopefully that will do. You think?
I love playing Question and Answer. I would love to answer anything you have in mind. Go ahead. Ask me. Leave me any and all questions. I will post them as soon as I can. ;)
Here are some things to take your mind off of today's date--don't panic.
"Writers aren't exactly people... they're a whole bunch of people trying to be one person."

Have a great weekend!
