Welcome to Sharon Stanley Writes, formally Farm and Fru Fru.
Why the change?
When I started the FFF blog 3 years ago,  I wanted to try blogging. It made me write on a regular basis and it was a good way to remind myself that what I thought happened, really had.  It has been fun to post about the farm and fun things I find online. And its been a good way to retain sanity.  But for the past year or so, I have enjoyed writing more children's stories.  I guess this is my coming out party.  It's where I have to write in the daylight.  It's where I have to admit that I write, and I
one day hope to be published.  Scary.

 I'm not sure when I actually started writing, second grade I think.  My classmates and I were to write a welcoming message for parents visiting the class for Back to School Night.  My little desk topper read "HELL, we're glad you came."  Yes, my parents were proud.  No, my spelling has not improved much. 
 I have been writing more and more children's things, and since everyone here is now officially out of school, I have no excuse not to write more...other than FEAR!
  I am told if you are going to write, you need a "voice", and an online presence.
So, this revamped blog is mine.
Check in from time to time for farm news, interviews with other writers and illustrators and writing updates.  I'll be searching blogs and columns for tips and there will be giveaways, and anything else I can think of. 
Let me know what you think!
If you were a FFF reader, I hope you will continue to stop by.  If you are new to my little corner of the world, WELCOME!
