New Beginnings

Happy 2017 to all you writers and readers out there!

It’s been quite a while since I last posted an update. During the last months of 2016, I was busy losing my mind planning a wedding. Luckily all the chaos and insanity resulted in the most amazingly stress-free day my husband – still weird to use the “h” word – and I could have ever imagined.

I’m looking forward to the adventures 2017 has in store for Taking Shape and cannot wait to help more writers perfect and share their works with the world.

Here we go!
