Two Years of my Writing Journey

 It seems crazy but it’s been a little over two years since  I started this blog.  My first blog was aimed mostly towards using fairy tales as inspiration for stories, but when I started this blog I wanted it to be more about my adventures in writing as a whole – which doesn’t always include fairy tales.

Below are 16 posts sparked by the last two years of my writing journey – pretty much in descending order – during which time, I finished  my children’s book for my little boy and wrote two books of a three-book romance series. ( I hope to be able to officially introduce them soon.)

Love and Laughter,

Dorlana 🙂
