My name is Margaret Hicks. I am many things to many people- wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend. To lots of people I am their former teacher. To myself I have always been a writer. I have been trying for years to bring that part of me out to the world, but publications has proven elusive. This blog is an attempt to further my writing life and carry you through the process with me. Maybe some day you can say you knew me when. Oh, and please tell the reporters that I am always a lovely person, fantastic mother, and look great everyday.
