Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tonight, I'm just filled with good news... I love nights like that, don't you?
Alright, so the first piece of good news tonight was that I actually sat down and made some decisions about my new children's book. I also fit in some writing, both on that book and my Young Adult novel. I even started working on another illustration for the children's book, which means that I now have a total of three pages of pictures currently in progress. Since I'm writing and illustrating the book, I feel like I need to see my vision coming to life before I commit to the words. I guess I want to make sure that I'm able to draw everything, since I'm still not 100% confident in my drawing ability. I was very happy with how the illustrations for my first book, "A Christmas For Toys," came out, but I'm still a little nervous going into a new project.
As thrilled as I was with the progress I was making on my new book, I still wanted to work on my novel a little as well. I feel like I need to take my attention away from the novel once in a while, or I get into this rut where I can't forge ahead with the writing anymore. Luckily, after working on the children's book for a bit, I was able to go back to the novel and find a spark that let me write a few more paragraphs. I wasn't completely satisfied with how they came out, but I was glad that I got the general gist of what I want to happen written down, and I can always go back and revise them later.
Now here's the other piece of good news... After everyone went to bed tonight, my mom and I finally had the opportunity to do what we've been waiting to do for what seems like forever... we started watching "Fuller House" at last! Wow, we only got to watch a couple of episodes, but boy was it nice to start it! The show is just as corny, sweet, goofy, and family-oriented as "Full House" was, and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm so glad that we took the time to watch all of the old series before starting this one, because now I can truly appreciate how awesome it is for everyone to be working together on this spin-off.
I'm excited to make further progress on my writing, and on "Fuller House," but right now it's off to bed because I have work tomorrow. It may be Spring Break, but not all of us are on vacation all week. It's a good thing that I love going to my job, or it would really hard to get up in the morning!
Your continued support means the world to me. From foster care to novels, and family to work experiences, I look forward to sharing more of my life with you each day.

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
