Well that is not entirely true, I used to blog when I was running for Vacaville City Council in 2010. But that was a different kind of blog. It was a kissing babies and bragging about my community involvement. Of course, I love the City of Vacaville and still remain active in my community both as a Volunteer and in my shopping local pledge.
This blog is my entrance into blogging about those items that come to my mind. People think the hardest part of being a writer is thinking of new story ideas. I contest that. Thinking of the ideas is the easiest part. Almost anyone can do that. Taking that idea, turning it into a story, crafting the world in which it takes place, and then getting that all down on paper that is hard. Getting it in front of an audience of readers, well that is even harder.
This blog allows me to do three things. Write, write and write again. Writing is a craft and like any craft it needs practice. The best way to continue to improve myself is to keep writing. That is what I intend to do.
Now, if you would help getting it in front of an audience, I would appreciate it. First, subscribe to my blog by clicking the link to the left. You can also follow me on twitter and Facebook with those links to the left as well. Second, recommend my blog to everyone you know. Sure most of them will just get annoyed at you for sending them something they don’t care about, but a few of them might follow my blog, my Facebook page or even my Twitter feed. In the end, I don’t think I am asking for a lot.
I hope you enjoy my thoughts and blogs. There will be sarcasm, things I find funny (but you likely won’t), and of course the topic of writing.
