My name is Jeneen M. Stickney, but most people just call me Jen. I was born in Michigan and grew up in Door County, WI. Today I live in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin with my husband and two daughters. I have been passionate about writing for as long as I can remember. There’s just something so addicting about getting lost in a fictional world and being able to take other readers there with me.
I love to spin the web of my imagination. Most of my inspiration comes from my dreams. I’ve always been interested in dream journaling but it wasn’t until I had a particular dream that I started seeing my dreams as great plot ideas for novels. In my dream I was reading a book and was completely enthralled by it. I was hanging on every word. It was exciting and had such great potential to be a really great book. But then I woke. Still too caught up in the dream and the feeling of having just been reading a great book, I thought to myself, “Why can’t I write books like that? Everyone else always has such great ideas.” Then it dawned on me that it was a dream and that I could write that book because it was my idea! Knowing how quickly dreams fade from our consciousness, I jumped out of bed and headed straight for my computer. I sat down, frantically typing, until every moment of the dream was logged.
Ever since then I’ve been dreaming up great story ideas and writing them down so that I can expand upon them and make them into novels. I have logged dreams in notebooks and on my tablet or laptop in the past but I’ve decided to switch to a blog because it is so much more accessible (phone, laptop, tablet…you name it!) Plus, having my own blog allows me to share some of my ideas, thoughts and quandaries with others.
I’ve posted my writing online before and I always enjoyed getting feedback from people that happened across my work. If you like my writing, let me know by posting a comment. If you don’t like it, feel free to share why. I know my style won’t be for everyone but there is always a chance that I may learn something new from constructive feedback.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy reading!
