Allow me to introduce myself


If you’ve clicked this link odds are that you want to get to know me, well let me begin by introducing myself. I am Chelsea Brown, the author of this blog and here’s a short list of the material that this blog usually covers…

1 Short Stories

2 Song Writing

3 Dreamer (the working title of my first YA novel; which has been under construction for almost a year now.)

4 Jenny Mac (An idea for a book series; which has been stuck in my head, and under construction, for the past decade.)

I’ve been a proud WordPress blogger for the past three years, I’ve met and have gotten to know some great people through their blogs, and have thoroughly enjoyed what this community has to offer.

I love writing and have been an aspiring author for 12 years, as of right now I’m working on Dreamer; which is still in it’s first draft, however I am hoping to submit for publication in the future.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you’ll join me on this writing journey.

  1. I just read your blog on being rejected. Looking forward to joining the club soon. I’ve had lots of short nonfiction published so I’ve gotten spoiled, but fiction is a different matter so I figure I’ll be slapped down numerous times. Thanks for being open about it; it helps to know I won’t be the only one. Good luck!


  2. Hi Chelsea. Thanks for stopping by my fiction blog and liking one of my short stories. I appreciate your response, as it’s still a very new blog. I’m looking forward to reading some of your work too. Good on you.


  3. thanks for stopping by and good luck with your project. I thought your flower pot episode was one of your family stories and I got concerned that the heroine got conked on the head with a flower pot. I thought, “Wow–that’s taking the kidnapping idea to the max!”
    Happy Pages,


  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post about info dumping in fiction! I really enjoyed reading the anecdotes you’ve posted here! Hope you visit my site again soon and find some useful information. Happy blogging and writing!

    I’ve already enjoyed reading some of the posts on your blog, and I look forward to reading more.

  9. Well, in the 78th position here, I probably won’t say anything earth shaking! I will say I appreciate your visit and “like,” and I will return that consideration to you. Good luck with your book.



  10. Chelsea, thanks for the like on my non-Feminist Tribute to Women. I’m writing a non-fiction, two-book work myself. Going the self-publish / publish on demand route. Cheers, S


  11. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and ‘like’ my Blog. As a teacher I am keen to see writers attempts to reach a young audience in an accessible and engaging way. I hope you manage to get your message out there.


  12. Hi Chelsea! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog (candlequill)! Good luck with your writing! I’m getting ready to publish my first book (Kindle – “The Price of Freedom”… out sometime this year!!), and am finishing off the draft this week of the 2nd book in that trilogy… a lot of work ahead, but it’s all worth it when you love your characters, isn’t it? If you’re like me, you’ve got more stories in your head than time!


      1. You might be interested in checking out another blog I run, The Writer’s Stuff; it deals with writer’s bits (as the name suggests!) like grammar, linguistics, etymology, etc. but also history bits, trivia, writing helps… Good luck on your second book, and may you focus and hone your craft along the way! πŸ™‚


  13. Thanks for the ‘like’ on my blog. I’m just catching up with Jenny Mac – looks like fun over here. Congrats to you for putting your story out there.. guessing you had some anxiety and ego bruising in getting it done. I admire you for pushing through. I just published a short article about the fear of exposing your work publicly, Writing for Fear and Money on the Web. Check it out if you get a minute. Thanks again.


    1. You’re welcome and it didn’t really have to do with anxiety, it was more about making sure that the story was solid and that it reached it’s full potential.
      I will check out that article it sounds intriguing.


  14. Thanks for the “like” on my post “In between” on thesaltwatertwin. Glad it gave me the chance to find you. I read your post on rejection. Definitely something writers have to get used to, right? I did a post on rejection, too, called “Everything Is Medicine.” If you get the opportunity, let me know what you think!


  15. Hi Chelsea, it’s good to meet you. Thanks very much for taking the time to come to my blog. Your Jenny Mac stories sound great! All the best to you with them and good luck with your writing!


  16. Hey great blog. I have put my hand to fiction in the past and written several lengthy stories. Never been published or even realistically tried to be. But your blog seems a good place to pick up some tips, both on writing and whether I should seek feedback someday!! Also thanks for visiting my humble blog, and hope you drop by some time again soon.



  17. Chelsea
    Thanks for visiting my new blog. I’d follow yours if I knew how to. The only option i can see is through email but I don’t think that’s how its done- please advise


  18. Hey Chelsea, thanks for liking my blog! I am also a huge J.K. Rowling fan and hoping, like you, to become published…I’m on book two and everyone keeps telling me to just write and figure out the agents and publishing later. It’s an insatiable need isn’t it? Best luck with yours πŸ™‚


  19. Chelsea – thanks for stopping by my blog. Sounds like you are well down the track to fulfilling your writing dreams. Congratulations and like everyone here I look forward to seeing you in print.


  20. Hi lovely.

    First of all, congratulations on your successful blog. I’d love to have you as a guest on mine if you fancied it. I’m also very happy to promote you. Follow me on Twitter: @EmmaIsWriting and we can discuss.

    Love x


  21. Hi Chelsea,
    Thanks for stopping by and liking my Schoodles/Twerking post. I usually don’t do dialogue but thanks to today’s challenge, I went there. Glad you liked it.
    Good luck with your editing and finding an agent! I am sure you will be successful!


  22. Hello Chelsea,

    I explored your blog a bit, and I like it. I’m on the front end of my writing career, and your blog gave me some encouragement to continue what I love doing, writing.



  23. Never give up your dream. There are levels in accomplishment. For me just the fact that you listened to some of my music (which I’d like to assume you did) is my goal. Would I one day love to be free styling on stage with my own band? Yes. But, I can’t get close to that goal if I don’t take baby steps. I’ve started with a blog and now I’m working on a freestyle stream and another website in an attempt to collaborate with musical happenings as a lyricist. Will it work out I’d like to think so. The thing is I’m going for it and you should continue to do so as well. That passion man. That dream. Feel it and keep going cause if you don’t you will always look back knowing you were good enough.

    I’d like to dedicate this song lyric to you πŸ™‚

    Life is good and then you grow older
    Don’t be the one looking over your shoulder.

    Have a wonderful night and keep writing/blogging!


    1. I don’t plan on stopping the pursuit of my dreams, and I hope that you won’t either. I really enjoyed transform into the beast and can see that you’ve got talent with music and lyrics. As a matter of fact if could sing I would more than like be headed in the same direction that you are in musically; however my talent only goes as far as songwriting. Thank you for the lyrics dedication it’s definitely a good boost. Best of luck to you and I will continue to watch you grow, I hope that I have the opportunity to be able to say that I knew you when. πŸ™‚


  24. From what I’ve read your book is going to be amazing. It is really exciting to see what the process is like towards publication. I don’t have the balls (or the story) to start writing my book yet but will be following yours with interest! Loads of luck and keep it up!

    Soph x


  25. I am a newbie blogger perusing the WordPress Reader. I like your style and you come across very genuine. Though I don’t think we have much in common content wise, I also have a dream that I am striving towards achieving, making every sacrifice necessary, and taking on board any and all advice that is so freely given. I enjoy what I have read so far and wish you the best of luck. I don’t think you need it, persevere on!
