I am a writer. That's what I keep telling myself, anyway. I have so many things I want to write, but not much that I've actually written. I guess that makes me an aspiring writer... Oh well, you have to start somewhere.
I have dozens of projects I've started and not finished; fiction, non-fiction, comics, poetry, songs, even a movie script. This won't be the end of the story, though. I have resolved not to die with a thousand started projects, none of which are finished. I have resolved to write on a regular basis. I don't know if anything I write will be widely published or even liked by anyone other than myself. We'll burn that bridge when we get there. For now, I just have to write.
That brings us to this blog. If I am going to practice the discipline of writing on a regular basis, what better place to start than a blog? I can't write a book today, but I can write this blog post. The book(s) will come in due time.
I can't tell you that you will love everything I have to say. I'm sure that all of you will disagree with me some of the time and some of you will disagree with me all the time and that's ok. I can't promise that this will be the most brilliant thing you've ever read. I can, however, promise you a few other things:
- I will be open and honest.
- I will be respectful of other people and their opinions, even when I disagree.
- I will try my best to make this blog entertaining.
- I will put myself out there and if I fail at anything I purpose to do, I will fail spectacularly and you, the reader, will have a front row seat!
With wild abandon,
