Hi! I’m Hannah, a wife and stay-at-home mom who writes to keep from losing her sanity.
I post daily poems, writing tips, and hacks for balancing writing and family.
Hannah Truelove Writing
Last year I completed the first two manuscripts for my Travelers of the Mainland series. The first book of the series, Reachers, will be released in 2019. Follow me for a chance to win a free copy!
I have always loved to write, but I juggled poems, lyrics, and story ideas in my head for decades before finally penning my first manuscript last year.
I was home alone most days with my (then) one-year old when I found myself getting back into writing.
It only took me three weeks to write my first novel (at 116,000 words). Published or not, that day an author was born.
Unfortunately, about twenty minutes after typing “The End” the unthinkable happened.
My computer crashed.
And I, clearly being a novice, had not made a back up.
Despite my desperate attempts, it could not be saved, and 116,000 words of my life’s work vanished without a trace.
After a short period of mourning, and thinking that I had received my sign to never, ever, write again-
I re-wrote it. The entire book, better than ever. Now I’m on book three of the series, with a second mission in mind. All the time I see wannabe authors who think they can’t do it, think they don’t have time. Well I can, and so can you. We’re just going to have to work really, really hard.
Follow me so you never miss a step of my journey!
