My First Blog

All my life I have considered myself a reader not a writer.  That all change the day I read my first H. P. Mallory book.  Now I have immersed myself in the world of writing and seriously, needed to have my head examined.  What was I thinking?  No really, I have no idea!  I avoided writing at all cost for most of my life...so why now?  I ask myself. 

Have you ever ran a mile, raised Sea Monkeys or programmed your DVR just to prove you could do it?  I live my whole life by this concept.  Not should I do it?  Like the voice of reason looking for a way to prove self worth or purpose...But can I do it?  Which is more of a personal challenge, void of any legitimate reason other than self-satisfaction. 

I have challenged myself to write and in 4 1/2 weeks, I have written 30,000 words.  Bringing me one-step closer to self-gratification and to my amazement a better understanding of how a story lives in each of us.  Some nonfiction, some fiction and others complete fantasy.  But only a few of us choose to put it in writing.
