Re-Introduce Myself Blog Hog x2

Hello everyone. Hope you're all well.

Today is the Re-Introduce Myself Blog Hop brought to you by Mark Koopmans, Elise Fallson, and C.M. Brown, and Stephen Tremp.

I'm going to do a quick re-intro of me and then I thought you might like to get to re-know the Gnome as well so look for that towards the bottom of the post!

My name is Heather.

Hello, Heather.

I've been writing since high school, well, writing what actually resembled stories since high school. 

I used to trade notebooks with a friend and we would write chapters to each other about meeting famous rock stars and they would fall madly in love with us and take us away on tour.

Pulitzer Prize winning stuff.

I've written quite a few starts to stories but had never finished one until a few years ago.

Then, suddenly, I thought that I should be a famous author and began what has turned out to be a very long lesson/journey in writing and publishing.

But, I am still writing, still trying, still learning and still moving forward so that is the best I can do for right now.
And now...


someone SO much more famous than I...

Stormy the Weather Gnome!!!

Hello out there in blog land!
Have you missed me? I've missed me!

My name is Stormy the Weather Gnome and I report on the weather.

We are, in fact, having weather right this minute. And not just regular weather. Dangerous weather. Some light snow followed wintry mix followed by ice.

Fun for everyone!

I wanted to let you know that on Wednesday, January 30th, 2013, I will be signing up for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I am very excited about this and I'll be bringing my old friend D-Rizzle and my new friend Sparks. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble we Gnomes can get into!


Thanks for stopping by to see us today!

Nice to re-meet you!


  1. Keep moving forward. One day you will reach the point where you release your book to the world!

    I think Stormy needs some ear muffs.

  2. Yes!! Double the trouble. Looking forward to it.

  3. I can't wait to see what trouble Stormy et al get up to either! A to Z should be a lot of fun this year :)

  4. HI, Heather,

    Don't worry... you are NOT alone on that JOURNEY... I am right there with you. Keep marching on... the clouds will clear and the sun will shine on you very soon!

  5. Hi Heather. Love learning new things about you've been writing since high school. Very cool!

  6. I'm excited about A-Z but haven't really thought up of a theme's been kinda frustrating because I want to be prepared this year...not like last year where I wrote my posts on the fly. Anyway, great to re-meet you. I'm learning too that the writing journey is long and at times arduous, but worth it. (:

  7. I thought I was the only one who wrote in notebooks as a child, and about being swept off my feet. Mine were mostly babysitter adventures. I love the gnome!

  8. Nice to meet you, and the Gnomes. As long as you are moving forward, you are on the right track.

  9. Hi Heather and Stormy,

    Well, you might remember how much I relate to gnomes and elves and fairies and goblins and pixies...

    You might also realise my take on all these blogfests. I avoid them and the A to Z is something I like to do good natured, mostly satirical postings on.

    May you continue to embrace your passion for writing, Heather and I do hope you remember me.

    In kindness and have fun,


  10. Gnomes are so cool. I need a few more for my garden.

  11. Thanks for the comments everyone!

    It's nice to re-meet you!


  12. Keep on writing, Heather! Never stop trying. It WILL happen. And I can't wait to see what adventures the gnomes will be having this April!

  13. You are WAY more famous than Stormy!!!!! :)

  14. I'm doing A-Z for the first time this year. Hope to see you out there.

  15. Hi Heather! You have a Weather GNOME??? SO DO I!!!!! And yeah, mine is buried in snow right now, too! So nice to remeetcha!

  16. Yuck, we had that weather yesterday. :( I got my start in notebooks, too, in fact I wrote most of my first completed ms longhand a few years ago.

  17. Keep working on your writing, I am sure something will jump out at you when you are ready! Thanks for being part of the hop, it has been great to re-meet you!
