So …. I understand a good writer needs a blog. Maybe even a crappy writer. Certainly, if I want to be part of the digital age, I need to play the part.
So here we are. I kicked around the idea of doing an all-encompassing blog about my many passions: college football, bad movies, my truck, my wife and her awesome stained glass talent, etc. But after a little musing, I decided I need to stay on target. This is about writing – mine and others.
I’ve been writing speculative fiction (broadly defined as fantasy, horror and sci-fi) for about four years now. It’s something I enjoy and there’s a little glimmer deep down that just maybe this is something I can do for a living. I have a few sales but it’s certainly not a wage-level basis yet. But persistence is the key. Persistence, or stupidity.
This is my first attempt at a blog. I have no idea how long I will last. I don’t know if I will stick with LiveJournal, and I am certainly not excited about my current journal style (best of bad options – I do like the eyeballs in the jar). In the meantime, here’s my pledge to you: I’ll try to keep this pertinent and entertaining and you continue to feign attention. As a friend of mine often says, "Your mileage may vary." Still interested? Good.
So hang on – let’s enjoy the ride.
