Whether you’ve stumbled across my site, or you’re here on direct assignment, I want to welcome you!
This space will serve as a central hub for thoughts, ideas, prompts, dares, lessons, wisdom, all of which come from previous experience or, more importantly, as I learn about the wide, beautiful, creative world of writing. I’ve gone the past several months wondering about and wanting to share these things with the rest of the world, and I’m happy to say that I’m finally jumping on it.
It’s an odd thing, though, that mingles with both confidence and self-image: who will want to know what I have to say? What could anyone possibly get from reading my blog? Apart from the obvious friends and family who are obligated by association to read or at least favorite the site for “later reading,” I realize that there are others like me out there who might want some kind of knowledge that they’re not alone. To know that there are still others who are unpublished, whether by choice or circumstance, and that no matter how many years you’ve been writing, or how many words you’ve banged out on the keyboard, typewriter, or notebook, you’re still going to have something to learn from the beautiful worlds you’re capable of creating.
I hope you’ll stick around. Not just for my sake, but to see if I can direct your attention to something you haven’t considered before.
