PostSubject: Hello, it's Lapillus!   Thu Feb 19, 2009 9:39 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm Casey McCormick, a.k.a Lapillus. Emily invited to come check things out so here I am! Things about me...

My birthday is Oct. 11.
I live in California and always have.
I have one fiance and two kids - a two-year-old daughter and a six-week-old son.
I've been writing, technically, since I learned how (ha!) but I penned my first story at eight and have been writing on and off since.
I wrote my first full length novel in 2004. It was way too long. It sucked.
Ahem...
I became "serious" about becoming published - eventually - in Jan 2008.
I have waaay too many beginnings and very few endings.
I've written adult fiction, adult fantasy fiction, YA fantasy, MG fantasy, YA contemporary..... you get the point.
I'm now focusing on an MG fantasy but I'd like to keep trying my hand at YA as well.

I blog. Feel free to visit and follow ---> http://caseylmccormick.blogspot.com/

Ask questions if you please.

Cheers!

Emily, sometimes I get a really bad itch to write in third person since that it all I wrote for years. When I do, I usually write MG or general fantasy since I prefer YA to be in first person. I got into one of these moods recently, hence the MG. I'm actually having a ton of fun with it. I don't want to share what it's about just yet. When I get my pitch shaped up for it, I'll share that.

ReNu, thanks for following my blog and adding me on Librarything. Just so you know, I don't use LT anymore really. I'm on, and prefer, Goodreads now. Check it out. I'd love to have more friends there!

Someone want to enlighten this poor uneducated girl about what MG is abbreviated from? Laughing

And, hey, Lapillus! Great name! Does it mean something?


Have fun posting around the forum, and please PM myself or one of the other mods (the purple people) if you have any queries or suggestions. Very Happy

Lapillus is Latin for a small stone or pebble. I studied Latin for a short time and fell in love with this particular word. I just felt a weird connection to it and now it is me. Smile

Hello Lapillus,

You mentioned you're working on a MG fantasy. MG is my main focus in writing. Whenever you're ready for a critique on it, let me know.I'd be more than happy to share my thoughts with you.
