Welcome to Penny Layne Writes. I am a writer and an aspiring entrepreneur. As I go on the journey of researching and learning about what it takes to succeed in both these aspirations, I would like to share what I learn with others seeking to change their lives. This blog is about that journey.
As a writer, I will share my stories with you, as well as the process I go through to get my work out there. I will also share resources and fun tidbits about writing. I believe it is important for writers to always be reading, so I will be sharing reviews of the books I read as well. Perhaps you will come across your new favorite here.
As an entrepreneur, I will share what I learn in my research. What are the different ways to earn money out there? Who is succeeding at it, and how? These are questions I am seeking answers to, and I would like to share what I learn with you.
I will be posting two to three times a week. About once a month I will also share an interview with an entrepreneur to give you a sneak peek into what that can look like. If you have questions you’ve been wanting to ask about creating your own business or working from home, you can fill out the contact form, or leave a reply to a specific interview.
Who Am I?
I am a Christian, a homeschool mom, a student, and a writer. I am also an aspiring entrepreneur.
If you want to know more about me as a person, I am fully a nerd, I love to learn new things, I love to do research, I love to read, and I want to travel the world (and write about my experiences). I am a mom, a wife, a collector of knowledge, and a person who likes to try new experiences.
If you want to know more about me as a Christian:
What are my beliefs? I believe in the one Lord, one Faith and one Baptism. The plan of salvation is to hear (Romans 10:14), Believe (Hebres 11:6, Acts 8:37, Mark 16:16, John 8:24), Repent of our sins (Luke 13:3&5, Acts 2:38, Mark 10:15), Be baptized for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:37-41, 1 Peter 3:21, John 3: 3-5, Acts 22:16, Romans 6:3-8, Colossians 2:12, Galatians 3: 26-27, Mark 16: 15-16, Acts 8: 34-39, Titus 3:5, Ephesians 4:5) and remain faithful (Revelation 2:10, Matthew 24:13, Luke 9:23)
If you want to know more about me as a student:
What am I studying as a student?
I currently have an Associate’s degree in Psychology, and I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa- an honors program for 2 year colleges.
Now that I have my Associate’s degree finished I am moving on to complete my Bachelor’s in history. Why history you might ask? History is a subject that involves a lot of research, and as I stated previously, I love research. I also find the study of the past fascinating, particularly Ancient Civilizations. I believe we can learn quite a bit from history that can be applied to our current lives.
If you want to know more about me as a writer:
What do I write? Mostly I enjoy writing fiction, although I’ve recently had some ideas about different teaching materials. My project of love/hate is a thriller I’ve titled “Cobwebs in Her Mind”. I have been going back and forth between working on this and not working on it for a couple of years now. I also have a couple of short stories (one of which I have posted on this blog entitled “Ashes to Dust”.
As I become braver, I may share some of the excerpts from my stories. If I do, please feel free to give me feedback, even if it is criticism. I promise to only cry for a little while 😉
