I’m a new writer, less than three years, that has finally come to the conclusion that this is what I want to continue to do with my life from here on out. The reasons for this are many: 1) Writing relaxes me in a way that nothing else ever has. 2) I get to create an imaginary world populated with characters that are as confused, anxious, scared, brave, heroic, and evil as I am or sometimes want to be. 3) Writing is fun. 4) I love creating something out of nothing. And on and on, you get the idea.
Someday I hope to obtain that ever illusive title of ‘Author’. To feel the thrill of getting published and getting the opportunity to have others read my work and find some pleasure from it. Obviously these are pipe dreams that could take years or even decades but I’m in it for the long haul and after all I’ll never have any shot at all if I don’t at least try.
I’m still so new at this that I’m not even sure what genre my writing falls into. But, if I had to choose one I guess I would call myself a mystery (and hopefully thriller) writer. Time will tell I guess.
As for me, I was diagnosed with Agoraphobia and Bipolar Manic Depression some years back and that’s a daily struggle. I stay inside a lot with Serica my cat and sometimes walk through the woods surrounding my living quarters taking my camera and trying to catch some of nature’s beauty and stillness. Of course I love to read every chance I get and I’m always looking for that next great story.
My hopes with this blog are to meet other beginning writers and learn from their experiences and maybe together we can help to improve each other and please feel free to critique anything posted. I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts.
