Musings of an Eclectic Scribe

About The Eclectic Scribe

The Eclectic Scribe is me!! Estella!! I’ve been many things in my  life:  Adventurer, wife, mother, student, nurse, teacher, on air radio personality, and more.  I’ve written about some of my adventures, mainly for my own enjoyment, and to have something to post on Facebook occasionally.  I also had was a collection of poetry which was really quite meaningful, but unfortunately they were lost many years ago due the unscrupulous practices of another person.

This year however something fantastic happened.  I was one the winners in this year’s National Novel Writing Contest!  The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days.  If that’s not something that turns your world upside down and your brain to mush by the end, I don’t know what will! LOL.  This was my second year to try it, last year I just barely missed it due to an automobile accident on the last day of writing and damn if those ER nurses just can’t leave you alone to write!

So now the writing bug has really hit me.  Some of my fellow writers have blogs and they suggested that a blog would be a great way for me to hone my writing skills.  And so the Eclectic Scribe was born!

I hope to be able to practice my story telling skills and learn how to better entertain you!  So welcome to my blog and relax while I let my mind ramble.  Please feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think and if there are things that I can improve on.

    Congratulations! I have never tried this, but have several friends who have. It is a big undertaking to just finish it much less win.

    Congrats! I finished up a manuscript in 2013 during NaNoWriMo. It’s a lot of work, isn’t it… But it sounds like you have a really deep well to draw from for your writing. Good luck!

    Wow that as quite an accomplishment! Congratulations. I’ve always wondered if I should write a book, I need to write a short fiction for a competition coming up about sincerity, so I hope to get help from fellow blogging writers. Check out my blog if you’d like!

    Thanks everyone! It was quite the experience. If you’re looking for something that will give you 30 days of insanity, National Novel Writing Month is the ticket! The main thing I liked about it was that it forced me to get my thoughts down. I will be checking out your blogs!

      Wow Thank you Lorie! I have read the rules and it may take me a couple of days to get it sorted out. It takes me a minute to figure out the links and all. But thank you!!
