Although I may eventually refine and expand my goals for this Round, I am going to start with a very simple goal. I am going to write a test mile every day of at least 250 words. These words may be part of a blog post, as I am gong to resurrect my blogging schedule, part of a WIP, or edits to earlier works or posts. I am going to prettify and edit my earlier posts on the history of language and literary history, as well as some of my personal musings. If you are interested in the Round of Words in 80 Days, check it out here. There is a great, supportive community of authors in this group; check out their goals here.

I am the youngest of four children, raised in the old-fashioned Irish-American way. I suspect my mother encouraged me to write from an early age to keep me out of her hair, although she may have regretted the decision when my teachers began to call about the controversial stories I was writing. Thus I began my career of butting heads with the good sisters at my Catholic elementary school, and ended it by leaving high school for college with no diploma. I wear my high-school dropout badge rebelliously and proudly. In college, I became fascinated with the Middle Ages, which was described as a “starry night” by one of my professors. So began a trek through languages and legends that informs my narrative non-fiction and historical fiction, as well as my blogs. I love feedback and enjoy discussing ideas. I have an accountability blog for the Round of Words in Eighty Days entitled Leavekeeping; I write a blog on literary history, intellectual history, and the history of words entitled Lapidary Prose. I'm on Twitter and Facebook; my email is email@example.com. View all posts by Elizabeth Anne Mitchell
