Hey guys! Welcome to my website, and more specifically, my blog!
In case you can’t tell from the rest of my blog, I am a writer. I write both screenplays and novels. And, like most writers when they start out, I am trying to get noticed in both the industry, and those who will become my audience.
Hold on, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me tell you about me. My name is Mary Elizabeth Jones. Yes. That’s my real name. Not a fake one. It actually says Mary Elizabeth Jones on my birth certificate (you don’t know how many times I’m asked for my real name…).
I lived in Maryland for the first few years of my life, before moving to Pennsylvania, where I still reside (for now!). I do want to move to New York or California eventually, but both are a little expensive!
I discovered my love for writing when I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for the first time. Before then, I had hated reading and writing. Afterwards, I decided I wanted to be the next J.K. Rowling! Since then, I’ve written short stories, poem, novels, and, most recently, screenplays.
Thinking I couldn’t make a career of writing, however, I started at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania as a Secondary Education Major. Visiting my old high school changed my mind real fast. I switched majors to writing with the idea of going into video game writing.
Fast foward, to a month after graduating Lock Haven, I decided to go for my Masters at Full Sail University, where I discovered my love for television writing.
And now, I’m writing (almost) everyday, and working towards my ultimate goal of becoming a Showrunner on my own television show someday. It’s hard work, I won’t lie, but I really enjoy it at the same time.
So, about the blog…
I have a few ideas for it. One is a story that’s still in the works, so I won’t talk much about that at all, except to mention that it’s a Supernatural Mystery.
A few other ideas I have are to talk about myself, as I did above. After all, a lot of writers use their blogs to let their readers learn about themselves. I also want to post writing tips, prompts, Inspirations, links to my favorite writing blogs and sites, and a slew of other things that I can’t think of right now.
I also would love to answer questions you guys might have more me! So don’t be shy in that comments section!
I plan to update here every Thursday, around 1pm.
